What is an Oral Surgeon?

An oral surgeon deals with correcting problems or damage to the mouth, teeth and jaw.

For the majority of people Oral Surgery involves the removal of teeth, including wisdom teeth.

  • Oral Surgeons have a general dental degree just like your family dentist.
  • An Oral Surgeon has an additional two-three years of specialist dental training, which makes them EXPERTS at giving you healthy teeth and a healthy smile.

The major benefits of treatment with a Oral Surgeon are…

  • Relief from wisdom teeth pain.
  • The prevention of bad breath.
  • The prevention of swelling and limited opening of the mouth.
  • Removal of infection.wisdom tooth removal

Extraction of wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties.

Wisdom teeth that only partially erupt allow for an opening for bacteria to enter around the tooth and cause an infection, which results in pain, swelling and jaw stiffness. Partially erupted teeth are also more prone to tooth decay and gum disease because their hard-to-reach location and awkward positioning makes brushing and flossing difficult. They can cause infection, pain, swelling and damage to neighbouring teeth.

If infection develops around a tooth, the gum can become sore and swollen and the person can experience bad breath, bad taste and difficulty opening their mouth and eating.

What can be done?

Our Specialist Oral Surgeon can relieve pain and swelling by removing problematic teeth (including wisdom teeth) in a caring and friendly environment

Treatment for Anxious Patients

Nervous patients can have their surgery carried out under sedation or general anaesthesia.

What is Sedation?

Sedation is a very safe process where a drug is given in an intra-venous form to relax and calm a patient. One of the effects of the sedative drug used (Midazolm, a benzodiazepine) is that the patient may not remember the full operation, and they will also feel quite drowsy. This makes longer and more complex procedures more comfortable for the patient. It is also a very safe method of relaxation. It is not the same as a General Anaesthetic.

Instructions for Sedation

Eat your breakfast/ lunch as normal on the day of the procedure

Take all routine medications as normal on the day of the procedure (unless instructed not to by the surgeon) Please remove all nail varnish from fingers

An escort must be available to take the patient home (by car – public transportation is not allowed) and stay with them for 24 hours

Sedation will NOT be undertaken if there is no escort available

I chose Dr Perry for my treatment because my mam decided to take me here, as she had heard great reviews and recommendations about Dr Perry. I found the initial consultation to be pleasant as everyone seemed to know what they were doing. The quality of the treatment I received was very high and well organised. My overall experience was very pleasant. I am ecstatic over my end result and I would recommend Dr Perry.

I was given advice on how to take care of my braces, and I’m very happy with my end result. Everything went smoothly from the beginning to the end. The staff were very friendly and most helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr Perry to my friends and family. My son’s teeth are now straight and beautiful. He is so happy, and that is priceless.

Molly, treated by Dr Ronan Perry Feb 2014
I hated my teeth and never smiled in a photo and I always covered my mouth when I laughed. My initial consultation was very informative and it actually made me feel excited about getting my braces on. Now, I have a confident smile. I couldn’t be happier.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Mulrooney as a dentist. I was petrified of going but once there his staff and he were very pleasant and comforting.

Mary S, Drumcondra
I first attended Dr Mulrooney looking for advice on cosmetic work. He told me very clearly about all my different options, as a nervous patient I was very surprised at how comfortable I felt in the chair. Dr. Mulrooney helped me choose the right option for me and I can now smile with confidence.
