Oral surgery

Oral surgery

Oral surgery covers any treatment that requires surgical intervention. It can encompass issues with the mouth, face and jaw. Most people are nervous at the thought of having any surgery, however, oral surgery treatments are often short and can be carried out in the comfort of our studios.

What treatments does oral surgery include?

Our oral surgeon can carry out:

  • Extractions for damaged and decayed teeth
  • Removing impacted wisdom teeth
  • Removing crowded or misaligned teeth
  • Exposing buried teeth
  • Treating tongue ties and lip ties
  • Treating abnormal lump and polyps
  • Treating jaw cysts

Extractions

Sometimes the best course of action is to remove a problem tooth. Extractions are the most common oral surgery procedure. Your dentist will assess whether your tooth needs to be extracted or not and then depending on the complexity may refer you for the treatment.

For simple extractions, we loosen the tooth using dental forceps and remove the entire tooth from the socket.

More complicated extractions are necessary if the tooth needs to be removed in parts due to its size. This would include a surgical extraction.

Dental Implants

Oral surgery does also include placing implants as a type of procedure. We have an implant surgeon at our Moorgate studio who has placed thousands of implants.

Implants are titanium posts placed in the jaw to support replacement teeth. They are a fantastic way to restore missing teeth and complete a smile.

Jaw Problems

For serious cases of temporomandibular disorder (TMD), oral surgery may be needed to correct the problem. Surgery can relieve swelling and restore and replenish lost bone. A jaw joint replacement may also be needed if the damage to the joint is significant.

An oral surgeon can also carry out surgery needed to correct a significant bite problem. Orthognathic surgery can dramatically improve asymmetry, overbites and underbites that are too significant for orthodontics to correct on their own. This is something that would be done in a hospital.

I had my teeth cleaned and polished by Roshni back in November 2021. She was really gentle throughout the procedure and I barely had any discomfort while getting the cleaning done. Overall a great job and thank you so much!

I have been meaning to write this review for the longest time! I cannot fault Dr Raj and his team for their brilliant service. Dr Raj’s consultation was concise and clear and he was extremely professional. Raj is extremely experienced, his judgement and expertise shaped my teeth to perfection! I was quoted 10-12 months for my top and bottom braces and my teeth came out amazing. I also had my teeth cleaned with the hygienist afterwards. Smilepod Bank branch is clean, courteous and all the staff are knowledgable, I have referred a few people to them. Keep up the good work! Simone

Today was my first time visiting Smile Pod Soho, it was amazing. The Hygenist I saw was lovely, I was quite nervous and she talked me through every step of what she was doing which really put me at ease. Really great place and I got taken in right on time. I'm so happy with my teeth now and will definetely be back.

Got a cleaning (Classic Clean and Polish) here and was really pleased with the service. Roshni (the hygienist) was really gentle and took the time to explain what she was doing. Will definitely be back for my next clean.
