We carry out a variety of oral surgical procedures and the most common procedures include the removal of teeth which are decayed, impacted or for orthodontic reasons. Local anaesthesia involves the administration of a local anaesthetic in the mouth to provide adequate analgesia for the safe, comfortable and painless removal of teeth. The patient is awake and alert at all times. This is an extremely safe procedure. There is no age restriction for this type of anaesthetic. The most common local anaesthetic used is Lignocaine. For anxious patients especially children, oral surgical procedures can be carried out with Relative Analgesia.
