What is an Oral Surgeon?
An Oral Surgeon is a specialist who deals with the various conditions of the mouth or jaws through surgical treatment.
While all dentists remove teeth, you may be referred to an Oral Surgeon for more difficult procedures, such as the removal of wisdom teeth. Dr. O’Neill performs the surgical aspects of implant dentistry in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team to replace missing teeth, and to support dentures or bridges. Bone grafting, sinus lifts and other implant site preparation procedures are often performed prior to implant placement.
Oral Surgeons undertake an intensive three years of hospital based training following an undergraduate qualification in Dentistry. Dr. O’Neill has completed numerous fellowships and has developed a strong area of interest in multi-disciplinary planning for dental implant placement and restorative dentistry.
Treatment is available under:
If you are a nervous about an oral surgery procedure, treatment under IV sedation may be the solution.
Will I be asleep?
Will I feel pain?
No, it is an integral part of the technique that local anaesthetic is used to prevent pain. You will not remember receiving these local anaesthetic injections.
Is it safe?
It is extremely safe. Midazolam carries a wide safety margin and the technique employed preserves your reflexes throughout the procedure. Sedation is carried out by your Oral Surgeon or a Consultant Anaesthetist.
