Pathology of the jaws and oral cavity can include lesions in both the hard and soft tissue. They often require imaging, biopsy and specialist consultation for diagnosis and management.
Wisdom teeth require specialist assessment to determine if extraction is required for long term oral health. Wisdom and other teeth may be difficult to remove when they are impacted, decayed or partially erupted requiring specialist skill to remove them safely.
Corrective Jaw Surgery may be performed on the upper jaw, lower jaw and chin to enhance oral function, aesthetics and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).
Bone grafting is sometimes required for optimal implant placement. A variety of materials and techniques may be employed to achieve good outcomes.
Dr Parthasarathi will work in conjunction with your orthodontist if surgical intervention is required to bring impacted teeth into the bite (expose and bond) or for the insertion of skeletal anchorage devices.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders can be very painful and debilitating. Dr Parthasarathi has extensive training in assessing and surgical management of joint disease. Treatment may range from conservative management to surgical intervention, including full joint replacement.
Dental implants are placed to manage missing teeth. They generally have greater stability, longevity and are more aesthetic than alternative replacement options such as dentures and bridges.
Minor oral surgical procedures include soft and hard tissue contouring for dentures, frenectomies and tongue ties.
