Oral Surgery

Specialist and complex oral surgery for dental patients in Walsall and the surrounding West Midlands is provided with Mr Hari Hunjan. He is our resident oral surgeon with many years of experience including current employment at the Birmingham Dental Hospital. He also provides intraveonous sedation for dentoalveolar surgery if needed.
 
 

Apicectomies

An apicectomy can be carried out on a tooth that has suffered persistent infection after failed root canal treatment. Our oral surgeon will lift a flap of gum and clear the infection and part of the infected tooth before sealing the root canal.
 

Buried teeth

Buried and ectopic teeth may need exposure for orthodontics (braces) or may need removal. These procedures can be carried out by Mr. Hunjan.
 

Dental implants

Surgical placement of implants are available here – read more
 

Bone grafting

This may be needed to supplement bone volume around dental implants.
 

Biopsy

Biopsies are taken if a patient or dentist is worried about lesions in a patients mouth and further investgation is needed.
 

Cysts

These can occur within the jaws. They are benign fluid-filled sacs within tissues or bone. Our oral surgeon will lift a flap to remove the cyst. This will then be sent for examination under a microscope to confirm its identity.

 

Oroantral fistula, OAF

Upper posterior tooth removal can cause a complication whereby a connection occurs with the mouth and sinus cavity. Surgical repair may be needed to achieve closure.

Covid-19 update 02/06/2020

On 29th of May the government announced that dental practices may reopen from 8th of June, subject to stringent measures to protect staff and patients.  We have been preparing the practice to accommodate these changes but guidance from the government has been limited. Further information has been promised  this week. There is a also still a national shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) but we expect this to improve soon.

 

Please bear with us as we endeavour to make the surgery safe for your return over the coming weeks taking the above into consideration. In the meantime we will still be available for telephone advice between 9am and 4.30pm on weekdays and between 9am and 12pm weekends and bank holidays. Please ring the practice during these hours on 01922 452540. Our help sheet provides tips on how to manage dental problems at home.

 

Thank you for your patience.
