We provide a range of oral surgical treatments that can be undertaken under local anaesthesia and/or intravenous sedation or general anaesthesia.
Exposures of teeth
Approximately 3-5% of the population have impacted teeth other than wisdom teeth. This means that they stay buried and unerupted or partially erupted. The commonest tooth to be affected is the upper canine.
Some teeth have large roots in solid bone and can be extensively broken down and decayed. They may have been root canal treated which can make the roots more brittle and difficult to remove.
Various lumps and bumps do occur in the mouth. The vast majority of these are benign and harmless although they do need to be removed in most cases. Biopsies are carried out under local anaesthetic.
