  The scope of our practice
Oral Surgery treatments available are restricted to dento alveolar surgery i.e. on teeth and tooth-carrying bones as well as intra-oral soft tissues including gums, lips, cheeks and tongue. In addition we carry out certain relevant surgeries that relate to the placement of dental implants. These include bone and gum grafting procedures, as well as bone augmentations in the sinus or nasal floor. The donor sites for these grafting procedures are located within the mouth. Minor oral surgery soft tissue procedures are also carried out including such procedures as removal of excess unwanted gum tissue, cyst removal and biopsies however more complex surgeries such as orthognathic jaw surgeries or removal of serious pathological lesions (large cysts, cancers etc), repair of jaw fractures or larger bone grafts requiring donor sites outside the mouth (e.g. hip) or distraction osteogenesis procedures for generating bone volume require referral to a specialist Maxillo-facial Surgeon. A suitable referral can be arranged following a consultation appointment with us.
  Infection control
Pathogenic organisms can cause infection when normal protective barriers of the body are breached which occurs whenever an oral surgical procedure is carried out. For this reason, in our practice we pay special attention to personal hygiene and correct aseptic technique. It is important to us that we minimise the possibility of wound contamination with organisms that can cause infection and absolutely prevent the possibility of spread of infectious organisms from person to person (for instance hepatitis or HIV).

Standard precautions are taken which means we regard every patient as having the same risk of contracting or spreading infection. Precautions extend to proper decontamination and sterilisation of instruments as well as instrument tracking. This means that a batch number is attached to the instruments used for your surgery which can be tracked backed to a particular autoclave sterilisation cycle. This number is attached to your records. Other precautions include single use disposables, sterile wraps, drapes and equipment (drills etc), correct hand-washing ‘scrubbing’ protocols, protective attire including safety glasses gowns and masks, pre-operative patient antiseptic mouth rinses and facial wipes and special attention to the disinfection of ‘working’ surfaces in the room in which surgery is performed between each and every patient.
  Medically compromised patients
It is very important that you provide for us a complete account (at least to the ‘best of your knowledge’) of any medical problems you may have including any allergies or health-related habits or addictions and any medications you may be taking including non-prescription medications prior to undergoing any surgical procedure. If you do not have all of this information then please let us know where to get it from, so that we may liaise with your other healthcare providers. If you are taking multiple medications, feel free to fax us or e-mail us with your medication list including frequency and dosages. Please note all information provided, is treated as strictly private and confidential and if you wish to discuss certain aspects of your medical health alone with the Surgeon then let us know so that we may accommodate your request. Understanding your health problems helps us to make you safe and prevent unexpected complications both during and following your oral surgery.
