Comprehensive oral maxillofacial surgery consultation
If you’ve been referred by your dentist, our qualified Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon will conduct a thorough initial consultation. This consultation aims to pinpoint the problem accurately and assess the complexities involved in any procedure. After making a diagnosis, we will discuss the available treatment options with you and provide detailed documentation related to your planned treatment. It’s important to us that you fully understand what the treatment process involves, and what to expect step by step throughout the treatment process.
Understanding anaesthesia for oral surgery
Our oral surgery procedures can be carried out under local or general anaesthetic, and rest assured that we will review and explain all the possible outcomes and implications relating to both the anaesthetic and your treatment before we schedule your surgery appointment.
We perform all our oral surgery appointments at our Bournemouth clinic, so if you would like to find out more or wish to book a consultation with us, please call the clinic and we will be happy to provide you with further information or confirm your initial appointment.
