Alongside our main areas of implantology, prosthodontics and endodontics, our dentists also offer oral surgery treatments such as the extraction of wisdom teeth and removal of cysts.
What is oral surgery?
Oral or dental surgery is a clinical procedure generally performed by an oral surgeon to repair and/or resolve a medical or cosmetic dental problem arising with the teeth, gums or jaw and so restore your perfect smile. Common dental surgical procedures include the extraction of wisdom teeth, the removal of cysts, apicectomies and other surgical procedures in dentistry present within the jaw.
Who is suitable for oral surgery?
Dental patients who may have pain with their wisdom teeth, swelling or gum inflammation – more common in the lower jaw than the upper jaw – may consider dental surgery to extract the wisdom teeth affected, which after initial consultation, have been diagnosed as causing the present significant discomfort.
A cystectomy (a routine cyst removal surgery) would normally be recommended as the next prompt treatment step once the cyst has been identified as, without treatment, it is constantly growing and dental surgery currently presents the only possible method of removal.
|ORAL SURGERY FEES|
|Wisdom tooth fully/partially erupted||£500|
|Wisdom tooth impacted||£600|
Are you ready to restore your smile?
The full amount you pay for your oral surgery varies depending on your personal needs.
However, the following amounts should give you a sense of what to expect for the cost of an oral surgery at Wimpole Street Dental Clinic in London:
What happens during oral surgery?
- After initial consultation at our central London dental practice, our dentist will diagnose the state of your wisdom teeth or any present cysts or infections for example.
- Your dentist will take an X-ray using our state-of-the-art 3D X-ray technology to determine the best dental care plan for you to agree together.
- Ideally, before any surgical procedure you should see the dental hygienist as this reduces the risk of infection after the oral procedure.
- Rest assured that you will receive a local anaesthetic to numb the affected tooth and surrounding gums before the treatment begins.
- The area may be accessed with small incisions which assist the effective removal of the affected tooth or tissue.
- With a wisdom tooth especially, you may feel a sensation of pressure as your dentist proceeds to remove the affected tooth from its socket by widening it slightly for ease of extraction.
- Post-surgery, trust your dentist to seal the affected area with dissolving or non-resorbable stitches as required, explain your aftercare plan and schedule your next check-up.
