Oral Surgery

Our consultants and oral health teams have years of experience in a wide range of oral conditions.

We Specialise in Complex Oral Surgery Treatments

The majority of patients that visit our oral surgery clinic have already been referred by their GP or dentist. You may be referred for a number of reasons, including problems such as, antibiotics not being effective, a complex extraction, or because your procedure requires a general anaesthetic.

At the North West Independent Hospital, we offer a range of oral surgery treatments that will help to free you from pain, resolve longstanding oral health issues and ensure you receive the best possible treatment no matter what problem you are experiencing. Our consultants and oral health teams have years of experience in a wide range of oral conditions.

We can offer consultations and treatments for conditions, including:

  • Surgical removal of wisdom teeth, buried roots and other teeth
  • Exposure or removal of buried canine teeth
  • Root-canal surgery (apicoectomy)
  • Surgical removal of cysts/polyps
  • Excision and biopsy of lip, mouth and tongue lesions
  • Treatment for facial pain

We specialise in a wide range of oral health procedures, and aim to put our patients’ minds at rest with our calm and comfortable surroundings. At every stage of your treatment and aftercare, we will keep you informed so that you always know what is going to happen, and understand aftercare instructions and healing times.

Oral pain can be debilitating and can really have a negative effect on your quality of life. Our aim is to free you of these problems in the most effective way possible. This may be through pain relief, surgical removal or extraction. Our consultants will assess your individual case to determine which course of treatment is right for you.
