Oral surgery is sometimes required for more complex procedures of the mouth, face and jaws, including the surgical removal of teeth. These procedures are performed by oral surgeons, who are highly trained specialists. Working closely with our dentists, they recommend the best treatment plan for you and make sure you understand the treatment and feel comfortable throughout the surgery. Oral Surgeons are trained to treat patients under sedation or general anaesthetic if this is required.
