Oral Surgery

Our qualified and experienced oral surgeon at Kings Capitol Clinic in Barnsley, will carry out your dental surgical treatment using pain free methods.

Various oral surgery procedures may be indicated to facilitate function of an oral appliance (partial or full denture), enhance the bony anatomy for improved aesthetics, improve periodontal health, and promote ideal healing after dental extractions or in preparation for dental implants.

Some of the oral surgery procedures carried out at Kings Capitol Clinic are explained below:

Incision & Drainage

Incision and drainage (I & D) is a procedure performed to relieve pressure from a dental abscess. In select cases, a rubber drain is sutured in place to maintain an opening if additional suppuration (pus) or tissue exudates (fluid) is anticipated.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is a periodontal surgical procedure to expose the clinical portion of a tooth or teeth. It may be indicated for improved aesthetics (gingivoplasty) or to facilitate a dental restoration on a fractured or decayed tooth.

Exposure

When a tooth is impacted, it usually needs to be exposed before an appliance can be attached to it by the orthodontist. This appliance will help move the tooth into its correct position.

Frenectomy

A frenectomy is a surgical procedure that removes or loosens a band of muscle tissue that is connected to the lip, cheek or floor of the mouth. It is indicated if the tissue restricts lip or tongue movement, or in conjunction with orthodontics.

Apicectomy

An apicectomy is a dental procedure in which the end of a tooth root is removed. It is often indicated in select teeth after a conventional root canal procedure fails or the anatomy of the root prohibits an adequate seal by conventional procedures.

Alveolectomy

An alveolectomy is a reduction of maxillary or mandibular (jaw) bone that may be necessary during removal of teeth or to create an anatomy more conducive to a removable or fixed oral appliance, such as a denture. A moderate recontouring of the bone is often referred to as an alveoloplasty.
