Wisdom Teeth and Dentoalveolar Surgery
Problematic wisdom teeth are one of the most common reasons for referral to our practice.
Dental implants are used to permanently replace missing teeth, and have a high rate of success and a more natural feel than removable dentures.
Orthognathics and Surgical Orthodontics
Surgical orthodontics includes procedures ranging from exposure of impacted teeth, through to the more complex orthognathic surgical cases.
Oral Medicine is the management of pathology of the hard and soft tissues of the mouth and jaws.
Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons manage trauma including fractures of the mandible (lower jaw), maxilla (upper jaw), zygoma (cheek bone), orbit (eye socket), nose and dentoalveolar injuries.
Our clinicians do not routinely see patients for the management of temporomandibular disorders including TMJ pain, clicking, dysfunction and bruxism. Surgery is rarely of benefit for these conditions and they are mostly better treated by dentists, prosthodontists or specific TMJ clinics. We are happy to provide details of clinicians with expertise in this field.
