Oral Surgery in London

At the London Dental Clinic, your oral surgery problems can be addressed and treated. There are several situations that require oral surgery. These include the extraction of teeth and the treatment and extraction of impacted wisdom teeth (i.e., third molars). More often than not, there is not enough room in the mouth for wisdom teeth to fully erupt. If they don’t half enough room, that will become impacted either in the soft tissue and/or the hard bony tissue. They can cause damage to the second molars, become infected, or cysts and tumours can form around them. So, it is highly recommended that you have these teeth removed. Canine teeth and premolars can also become impacted, and will require extraction in many cases.
If you are missing a tooth or several teeth, oral surgery is used to place an implant(s). Dental implant patients should have enough bone for the dental implant to be placed. You London dental clinic will perform the necessary examinations to see if you are a good candidate for dental implant(s). Oral surgery can also help correct uneven jaw growth problems, broken jaws, temopo-mandibular joint problems, and can also help with denture fit. Additional problems that can be treated with oral surgery are lacerations of the mouth, the removal of dental lesions that require a biopsy, infections of the face, repair of cleft lip and palate, and sleep apnoea and snoring problems.
