Oral Surgery

Leading Dental Practice in North Brisbane QLD

Our priority is providing painless and easy treatment.

Wisdom teeth pain? Wanting to replace a missing tooth? Jaw pain? We can certainly help you!

Oral surgery covers a wide variety of procedures that can be completed within our clinic. This includes, but is not limited to, extractions of teeth prior to orthodontics, wisdom teeth removal, placement and restoration of dental implants, TMJ assessment and diagnosis, and treatment of clinical oral pathologies such as cysts and growths.

When is Oral Surgery Needed?

Tooth Extraction

There is a variety of reasons why tooth extraction might be necessary for your oral health. This includes extensive decay, infection, advanced gum disease, irreversible fractures and crowding.
Prior to extraction, we will address alternatives to save the tooth or any future options to replace the missing tooth. Extraction of one or more teeth may be necessary prior to orthodontic treatment to ensure there is enough space for proper alignment.
Some teeth can be easily removed under local anaesthetic in the chair. However, for teeth that are impacted, badly broken or fused to the bone and require a minor surgical procedure, we have teamed up with a local specialised oral surgeon who will look after you.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

In most cases, wisdom teeth will erupt between the ages of 17 and 25, but it may be recommended they are removed before they have fully developed. If extracted early, you can avoid a variety of complications including overcrowding, infection, pain, decay and swelling in the gum tissue.
Because wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt into the mouth, most people just do not have the space to accommodate these extra molars. Younger people who have their wisdom teeth removed before complete development usually experience a less complicated procedure and a faster healing time.
With regular check-ups and monitoring, we can provide you with a clear recommendation for your wisdom teeth.

Jaw Problems

TMJ disorder (temporomandibular joint disorder) refers to jaw and joint dysfunction. This can affect people of all ages and about 5% of the population. TMJ disorder may result in misalignment or displacement of the jaw, which puts pressure on the nerves, blood vessels, muscles and supporting tissues, causing pain, popping, jaw rigidity, and headache.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the best alternative to natural teeth and we are proud to offer them as a treatment option for our patients. Implants are designed to fill in a gap left by a missing or extracted tooth.
Untreated missing teeth can lead to bone loss, jaw recession, shifting of teeth, increased risk of tooth decay, and can cause more teeth to require extraction. In addition, leaving a gap can alter the shape of your face and lead to sacrificed muscular support and in turn, premature ageing. Dental implants will provide a strong foundation in order to support your jaw and mouth, providing stability, function and restoring the shape and contouring of your jaw.
