Oral Surgery at Dublin’s Leading Dental Clinic
Portobello Dental undertakes a variety of surgeries to help keep your dental health at its peak
Oral surgery covers a wide range of in-depth treatments needed to fix certain issues in the mouth.
This can include decayed tooth extractions, impacted wisdom teeth removal, implants being added to the jawbone and repairs to damaged teeth if there has been an impact to them.
We’ll always aim to provide restorative and preventative dental care to keep your original set of teeth if possible, but if there’s nothing more that can be done, and we need to perform dental surgery, we’ll explain the process, what you can expect, and what to do after the operation.
No. While the infection may make the tooth extremely sensitive, the vast majority of root canal treatments are entirely painless.
We’ll make sure the area is completely numb before starting work. While an infected tooth will more often than not result in tooth pain before you see us, we’ll be able to relieve this pain upon your arrival and throughout the treatment.
The area might feel tender after the treatment, but this rarely continues beyond a day or two. Feel free to contact us if you’re unsure or anxious about it.
Wisdom teeth removal
Wisdom teeth can occasionally grow in awkward parts of the jaw, causing damage to adjacent teeth. Although healthy, these teeth need to be removed as they can cause crowding of the teeth, misalignment, cracks, and infections as gums are shifted around.
Removing wisdom teeth can be a little bit more difficult and time-consuming than other smaller teeth, due to the number of roots, the awkward placement right at the back of the mouth, and any inconsistencies in the tooth structure (such as hooked roots). During your check ups with us, we’ll keep an eye on what your wisdom teeth are doing, making sure that they won’t cause any difficulties with the rest of your teeth, and making plans for minimising this damage if they will in future.
What People Are Saying
I would recommend the Portobello Dental Clinic because I felt the price was reasonable, the service was excellent, all the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the end result looked great.
I am so glad I found the Portobello Dental Clinic and have no hesitation in recommending them to my family and friends. Everyone at the Portobello clinic is professional and friendly and the follow up phone call after treatment, to inquire how I was feeling was much appreciated.
I recently got implants at Portobello. I am very satisfied with the results and I have confidence that if any problems do arise, that they will be dealt with. I have been going to Portobello for about nine years.
