Oral surgery is an internationally recognised specialist field of dentistry. The additional training and experience required to gain this qualification not only allows an oral surgeon to restore a patient’s teeth but also to diagnose and perform surgery relating to other areas of the body including the soft tissue of the mouth, gums, neck and jaw, as well as the teeth.
The oral surgeon at Roland And Tollett Dental Practices is qualified to perform a number of complex procedures including removal of impacted wisdom teeth and the placement of dental implants. In addition, an oral surgeon may perform the following:
- Treatment of facial trauma
- Bone augmentation (bone grafts)
- Facial rejuvenation
- Corrective jaw surgery including treatment for TMJ dysfunction
- Administering of anaesthetic
- Some oral cancer treatments
To ensure the highest standards of treatment, it is necessary for dentists practicing in the UK, to undergo an additional three years of training and examinations before they are qualified and competent to undertake these procedures.
Should your dental needs be more complex than usual, here at Roland and Tollett Dental Practices in St John’s Wood, we have access to the services of a highly experienced oral surgeon who will be pleased to assist you.
