Extractions/ Oral Surgery

  • Dr Tierney has developed techniques which minimise post operative pain and swelling for difficult extractions. For example he uses ultrasonic instruments which combine minimum bone loss with automatic cleaning. Frequently this means that it is not neccessary to use stiches.

  • Dr Tierney is very experienced with the following minor oral surgery proceedures :-
  • Difficult extractions
  • Apicectomy - surgical correction of failed Root Canal Treatments.
  • Wisdom Tooth extraction - application of carefull techniques can minimise pain and swelling eg- use of ultrasonics and tooth sectioning.
  • Retained Root extractions
  • Cyst removal
