If you have an issue with your teeth, jaw bone or general health that requires you to have oral surgery, then you will want to be able to see a trusted and experienced dentist. At Meadowbank Dental, our oral surgery clinic has been in operation for more than ten years and we can offer you safe, effective and well-supported dental surgery for many common issues.
If you need to have a tooth taken out then the most likely course of action is that you will be able to have it taken out by your normal dentist. However, there are more serious cases such as an impacted wisdom tooth that will require you to use the services of an oral surgeon.
The oral surgeon is also able to help with problems that have their genesis in the jaw bone or muscles – this might include extreme cases of temporomandibular joint disorder or even issues with the fit of dentures.
As well as extractions and oral surgery in Edinburgh, you can also get assistance with sedation for treatments if you are a particularly nervous or phobic patient.
Oral cancer is the sixth most common cancer in the UK and we offer a screening process for it at Meadowbank Dental. During this process we look for anything unusual in the mouth including lesions or suspicious lumps. While many are no cause for concern, there are some that will require a biopsy or perhaps removal to be on the safe side. This is something that would be done by an oral surgeon.
If you are referred for extractions and oral surgery in Edinburgh at Meadowbank Dental, we will do our best to see you as soon as possible. We understand that dental issues can be distressing and have a huge impact in many areas of life. We also know that, the sooner you get the treatment you need, the more likely it is that you will get the results you want.
For many issues, surgery is a last resort and so we know that by the time people come to us, they have often exhausted other options. We want to be able to offer the final step and full solution to as many issues as possible and look forward to giving you the help you need.
