Advanced Oral Surgery in London

For many conditions that are associated with the mouth and jaw, the most appropriate treatment is oral surgery.

Here at Museum Dental Suites, we specialise in taking care of a wide range of dental conditions and can provide expert treatment for patients who require oral surgery. We work hard to provide a friendly and professional service for all of our clients and we utilise the latest techniques to ensure the best outcomes.

Common Types of Oral Surgery

There are many different types of surgical procedures that are used to treat conditions in the mouth – these can range from simple to complex and may be medically necessary or carried out for cosmetic reasons. Examples of treatments that may be carried out by a specialist oral surgeon include:

  • Wisdom tooth removal
    Also known as your third molars, these teeth are the last ones to push through the gums, and generally do so when a person is in their teens or early 20s. While many people have their wisdom teeth grow in without any problems, some don’t have the space in their mouth for them and the teeth can grow in at unusual angles or become impacted. In these situations the teeth will need to be surgically removed.
     
  • Dental implants
    Tooth loss can be the result of many different things – from injuries and trauma, through to tooth decay and periodontal disease. dental implants are an excellent choice for reconstructing a person’s smile, and they can also help to prevent deterioration of the jaw bone and unwanted movement of the remaining teeth.
     
  • Removal of lumps, swellings and cysts
    Soft tissue surgery is another common type of oral surgery, and can be used to treat a number of different conditions in the mouth.

Some of the other types of oral surgeries may deal with cleft lips, cleft palates, facial trauma and the root or pulp of the tooth.

The Procedures

Although oral surgery will differ for every patient, depending on the type of work they require, as well as their specific dental health needs, it’s important to note that oral surgery should never be painful.

Anaesthetics are often used during oral surgery to numb the area and ensure the patient’s comfort. Meanwhile, pain medications and other therapies – such as hot or cold compresses – can help to reduce any soreness.

Oral surgery generally requires a minimum of three visits to the dentist. The first appointment will be a consultation to discuss your requirements and treatment options; the second will be scheduled for the procedure itself, while the third trip to the dentist will be for a follow-up check. In some cases, additional appointments will be necessary to carry out the different stages of the procedure.

After any oral surgery, it’s important to follow any after-care instructions. It’s likely that you’ll be told to avoid eating foods that are very hot, cold, sticky or hard for a few days, as your teeth will probably be more sensitive than normal. You should also be sure to learn about the proper care for any dental appliances that were placed and take care look after the health of your teeth by continuing to brush and floss on a regular basis.

I have been undertaking a cosmetic treatment (Invisalign) for around eight months here, off the back of a recommendation of a friend who had the same treatment. The professionalism and perfectionism with which my treatment was delivered was outstanding, as was the general service and were all of the staff I encountered.

My dentist Dr. Wahab Shakir was particularly great, with a friendly, reassuring manner and an eye for detail. He always went above and beyond, without ever being asked.

I'm now almost at the end of my treatment and couldn't be more pleased with how treatment has gone. Given the service and end result I'd also consider it excellent value for money.

Keep up the good work Museum Dental Suites!

Firstly what a great dentist, all the staff were friendly and very helpful as this was my first time here.

I had called for an emergency appointment due to a sudden cracked tooth and Dr Wahab Shakir despite the end of day fast approaching (30 minutes till close) he said he would see me.

The treatment was not straight forward due to the crack but Dr Shakir after a lengthy time managed to save the tooth/restore it and prevent what I believe most dentists would have done which install a crown - Thank you!

Highly recommend this dentist and service and I am grateful for not only seeing me within an hour but also staying passed closing time and finally for doing a Stella job.

This is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.

Best dentist ever hands down. Least painful and least scary experiences here (I'm usually really scared of going to the dentist, and even find the initial anaesthetic injection painful) - they really care about the patient, and making sure you're comfortable, results are also fab. Seriously can't imagine a better dentist!
