We Believe every interaction with our patients is an opportunity
Restore your smile with oral surgery in Mill Hill. Our gentle, caring, and highly-trained staff use state of the art equipment and technology to treat dental injury and disease that may extend to the jaw, face, neck, and head. We maintain the highest levels of care and cleanliness to ensure our patients have a safe and pleasant experience at our dental practice in Mill Hill.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to grow through in the mouth, and sometimes there isn’t enough room for them. Impacted (stuck) wisdom teeth can result in pain, decay, and infection unless they’re surgically removed.
One of our skilled and experienced dentists in Mill Hill will gently lift the wisdom teeth out of their sockets using surgical instruments. The procedure can be made easier by cutting up the teeth into smaller pieces before removal. In cases where a tooth is covered by bone and gum, a small incision is made to expose and remove the tooth. The cut is then stitched back together.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that function as artificial roots for replacement teeth. Implants are successfully used by our dental clinic in Mill Hill to replace missing, loose or damaged teeth.
The implant will be placed in your jawbone, and left for a number of months to fuse with the bone. You may be fitted with a temporary crown, bridge, or denture during this time. Once your mouth has healed, your dentist will uncover the implant and fit the permanent restoration. Your artificial tooth/teeth will match the shape, size, and colour of your natural teeth.
A sinus lift is used to build up the bone in the upper jaw, allowing dental implants to be safely placed. The bone-graft material used may be taken from your mouth, other parts of your body, or a cadaver.
Your dentist will cut the gum tissue to expose the bone in the back of your mouth. A small opening is then made in the bone, and the membrane separating the sinus from your jaw is gently pushed up. The bone-graft material is then added into the space where the sinus was, and closed with stitches. The graft is left to fuse with the bone for at least four to nine months before your implants are placed at our dental surgery in Mill Hill.
The best procedure for you will be determined by your private dentist in Mill Hill. At your initial consultation, we’ll give you a full dental examination, and take X-rays and 3D scans of your mouth. These investigative procedures allow us to map out your own personalised treatment plan.
Oral surgery is always performed under local anaesthetic to numb the area and prevent pain. You may also be given a sedative to calm anxiety and help you relax.
Your dentist in Mill Hill will advise you of the side effects of your particular treatment at your initial consultation. We’ll also discuss with you the best ways to manage your aftercare for a smooth recovery.
