Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a specialty concerned with diagnosing and treating diseases, injuries, defects and aesthetic aspects of the mouth, teeth, jaws, face, head and neck. They often work alongside other practitioners including general dentists, orthodontists, periodontists, prosthodontists, radiologists, and pathologists.
Peter practices a wide range of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgical procedures but has a special interest in the removal of wisdom teeth and other impacted teeth, difficult extractions, exposure of impacted teeth, placement of dental implants using guided surgery, bone grafting for implants including block grafts, socket preservation, and sinus lifts.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons undertake rigorous training and examinations over many years to become fully qualified.
