DentistryForYou has been chosen by the NHS Local Area Team (LAT) as a preferred provider for specialist Minor Oral Surgery services to referring dentists within the Essex borough. We currently operate this service from our Maldon, St Clements and Leigh Road branches.
The advantage of using our Minor Oral Surgery service is that a patient can have their treatment carried out in the comfort of a dental practice rather than being referred to hospital. Additionally, the waiting times for any treatment are substantially lower.
This service is provided under an NHS contract and any referred patient is referred back to the referring dentist after treatment. Our surgeons are fully qualified and accredited and approved by the LAT.
We offer the following treatments within the Practice:
- removal of broken teeth;
- removal of buried roots;
- removal of partially impacted wisdom teeth;
- removal of cysts;
- removal of third molars;
- extractions of special difficulty;
- apicectomies; and
- exposure of unerupted teeth for orthodontic purposes.
Patients can also be referred privately if outside the area or the treatment is not covered by the NHS
All minor oral surgery procedures are carried out under local aesthetic where the patient is given an injection into the gum, yet remains wide awake. Whilst most patients find the thought of the procedure worse than the procedure itself, we have highly trained staff to support them through the process. Where a patient is particularly nervous then we are able to offer sedation with a local aesthetic.
Following treatment, we have an adjoining recovery room where patients may lay down in a quiet and relaxing environment prior to leaving the Practice.
If you are one of our patients, please discuss this service with your dentist. Otherwise, if you are a patient at another dental practice then you should in the first instance speak with your own dentist.
