Oral Surgery

Dr George talking to patientThere’s more to your smile than just healthy teeth. At Hoppers Crossing Dental we help families access services for cancer patients and individuals in need of oral surgery.

Cancer Treatment and Your Smile’s Health

If you’re undergoing cancer therapy, we’ll help you take extra steps to protect your smile. In most cases, your oncologist will recommend seeing your dentist and getting any treatment out of the way before starting radiation or chemotherapy. Our dental team will show you how to care for your delicate oral tissues to minimise any discomfort.

Caring for your smile will make it easier for your body to combat infection, not to mention help you eat more comfortably so that you can maintain a balanced diet.

As part of every exam, we also include an oral cancer screening. This silent and deadly disease is often undiagnosed. The most important treatment step is early diagnosis.

Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

The 3rd set of molars usually start to erupt between 16-26 years of age. While they do not always cause problems, they can easily become impacted or wedged in a way that makes them difficult to clean. As such, they often develop infection or decay (which can spread to other teeth). Removing wisdom teeth helps you avoid unwanted dental problems as well as possible crowding. During your procedure, our Hoppers Crossing dentist numb the area and offers options such as general anaesthesia so that you don’t remember anything about the process.
