Retrieval of a root from the sinus cavity

Very rarely a tooth's root may become dislodged during an extraction up in to the cavity above the roots of the upper teeth, called your maxillary sinus. If left there it can create a source of infection and therefore removal of the fragment is usually recommended.

Our team of oral surgeons have thousands of hours of operating experience which enables them to manage these situations carefully and effectively for their patients. This helps to reduce procedure time and trauma as well as decreasing the risk of complications during or after surgery.

Our peaceful and relaxed environment here at the centre will allow you to have your surgery in as comfortable an environment as possible. You can lay back and watch a movie on our ceiling-mounted screens tucked in with a warm blanket whilst we perform your surgery.


I'm nervous of having SURGERY...

We are very aware that the idea of having a surgical procedure can be stressful for people which is why we have worked hard to create as calm and relaxing environment at our clinic as possible. But we do also offer sedation for those patients who need something a little stronger to calm their nerves. To read more about our sedation service please click HERE.

why should I see a specialist and not my general dentist to have my surgery?

Specialist oral surgeons have trained extensively in the art and science of safe and accurate surgery involving the teeth and jaws. Their advanced knowledge and experience in this field helps reduce surgery time as well as decreasing complications during and after surgery. Having spent tens of thousands of hours operating in the mouth you can rest assured you will be in safe hands with any of our team of Specialist Oral Surgeons.

DO I need to be referred to come and see you?

Usually if a root has been dislodged in to your sinus during an extraction then the treating dentist would refer you to us for the surgical retrieval. But you do not need to be referred to come and see us if you feel you have sinus issues after a dental extraction. Our Specialist Oral Surgeons can be accessed directly without the need for a referral from your dentist. To arrange a consultation please contact us and we would be happy to provide assistance.
