Oral and maxillofacial surgeons can provide surgical intervention for conditions and diseases that don’t respond to less-invasive treatment methods.

Oral surgeons are trained in many procedures and can treat the hard or soft tissues of the mouth and its connecting structures.

In addition to the excellent dentistry with anaesthesia care, Crowborough Gentle Dental Practice offers oral and maxillofacial surgery care as well.

Some of the in-clinic procedures our East Sussex oral surgeon offers include:

Common Oral Surgical Procedures
– Oral and maxillofacial surgeons study for about a decade to become specialized in the field. Some deliver a variety of procedures, while others focus on a single type of oral surgery, such as extractions.

For some types of procedures, such as dental implants and tooth extractions, your general dentistry team at Crowborough Gentle Dental Practice can provide in-office procedures right here in our office. For other procedures, we’ll refer you to an oral surgeon we know and trust.

Wisdom Teeth & Tooth Extraction
– Your dentist may refer you to us for extraction of a tooth. Or you may want to call our dental practice in Crowborough if you’re having pain or symptoms related to your wisdom teeth. The ideal time to have wisdom teeth removed is before you’re 25 years old, but it is possible to remove them at an older age.

We have the specialised team, skillset and equipment that makes getting out broken, impacted, infected or otherwise difficult teeth much easier and less stressful. In conjunction with a wide range of anaesthetic options available, such as IV sedation or general anaesthesia, even removing difficult, impacted teeth can leave you with a positive experience. For more information about wisdom teeth extraction, click here.

Dental Implants
– A natural tooth and a dental implant have the same working components – a root and a crown. The root is what supports the tooth and holds it in place, while the crown is the part that is visible inside your mouth. When a tooth is missing or needs to be replaced, our East Sussex oral and maxillofacial surgeon will discuss options of inserting a dental implant into the area.

Our Crowborough Dentistry and Oral Surgery and maxillofacial surgeon has advanced training in dental implant surgery and does so with the most up-to-date technology. We look forward to discussing dental implant options with you and helping you achieve the smile you deserve.

Bone Grafting
– When you are missing a tooth for an extended period of time, your jaw bone will start to degenerate due to the lack of function in that area.

As a certified Oral & Maxillofacial surgeon in East Sussex, we have the ability to repair these areas with healthy bone obtained from a tissue bank or taken from the jaw, hip or tibia. After bone grafting surgery, your jaw will have better functionality and aesthetic appearance.

Exposure of Impacted Teeth
– An impacted tooth is simply a tooth that cannot erupt naturally and grow into it’s proper space. To assist in the growth process, our East Sussex oral surgeon will lift up the gum to expose the tooth. Once the tooth is accessible our oral surgeon will work with your orthodontist and together will form a plan to move the tooth into place.

Wisdom teeth also commonly become impacted. When this is the case, we will uncover the teeth from inside the gum and extract them.

Whether you are hesitant to visit the dentist in Crowborough due to anxiety, fear or pain associated with treatment, our oral surgery in Crowborough, East Sussex, with our sedation and anaesthesia services, can help you regain your smile – pain-free!

Amazing place, fantastic staff, receptionist lovely & really made us feel welcome. Free Consultation with Shiv was superb, free 3D teeth scan (Itero scan) 3 pairs of Viera retainers. Attention to detail is incredible with the latest equipment & technology, you know exactly what you’re getting. I had been researching a lot before I made my decision for my daughter to get her teeth straightened and a great experience so far. My daughter was feeling tense & anxious, but the dentist made her feel comfortable, safe & at ease. The name says it all! My daughter cannot wait for the Invisalign treatment to start and to see the results. Couldn't recommend high enough.

I visited Crowborough Gentle Dental as an emergency following a nasty incident where an old composite cracked off my front tooth. I was mortified and very upset. I was visiting family so came as an unregistered patient. The team were able to fit me in that very day. I saw dentist Hazel and dental nurse Paige. They were kind and understanding and were able to fix my tooth at the appointment. I cannot express how much I appreciated the care they showed me and the work they did was fantastic, to the point that the relief I felt at having my dental issue resolved so quickly brought me to tears! On top of this I feel that the cost of treatment was very reasonable considering the circumstances and level of care. I live 4 hours away but am still considering booking in with them to have any further work done! I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you are looking for a great dentist in the area. please do pay them a visit!

After not visiting a dentist for several years, due to an immense fear, I lost half a tooth and was in need of urgent treatment. I contacted Gentle Dental online Sunday evening and was seen as an emergency the next day. I was completely put at my ease by Julie the receptionist right through to the dentist. I was then booked in for a tooth extraction and given the option of sedation. The whole process was fully explained and I was treated with kindness and understanding every step of the way. There has been daily communication and I would like to thank everyone for putting me at my ease and treating me with such understanding, kindness and professionalism. Sally

My second visit to CGD and again a great experience. Have never said that having been to a dentist.Hazel is brilliant technically and explains exactly what is happening and what needs to be done. The added bonus is that she is very ably assisted by Estela, a truly professional nurse.They really are a great team.Thank you so much for your work so far. Looking forward to seeing you both in October when I know the receptionists, Julie and Alison, will also make me feel at ease and warmly welcomed.

I’m a nervous patient and after delaying the need of getting two implants for several years, I finally gained the will to get them done with Crowborough Gentle Dental. From start to finish they built my confidence and made me feel relaxed about it when I really didn’t think I could be.Shri as the dentist is an absolute pro and I love the way he explained how technology helps so much. Shiva the manager is a superstar too! I just think they are both great at what they do and I’m very happy to have found them.Really recommend!!

The staff here are kind, quick and professional. I’m a visitor to Crowborough and managed to lose a crown. I got an appointment for the next day with Hazel who supplied me with an emergency filling with zero pain. The dental nurse and receptionist were lovely too. Recommend!

As a very nervous and apprehensive patient I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Crowborough Gentle Dental. I have recently needed a tooth extraction which was handled with the utmost care, support and sensitivity. All the staff are incredibly kind and lovely and I couldn’t thank them enough for looking after me.

Having been in a lot of pain Saturday and Sunday, I messaged Gentle Dental at 14.06 on Sunday with the hope of being seen early Monday. Shiva messaged me back immediately and I was seen by Shri at 14.30 the same day!I was given Antibiotics and a follow up appointment for the Tuesday.Truly, a great experience from start to finish.

I have not been to the dentist for many years as i am not afraid to admit and a bit of a coward as a result of many bad experiences in the past.I can honestly say that the treatment i received from both Haris (Dentist) & Paige (very capable assistant) was fantastic.A large filling and two broken teeth fixed later i am a very satisfied customer and will be returning on a regular basis.I cannot praise the experience enough and would encourage anyone with a dentist phobia to pick up the phone and book an appointment.Thank you very much Crowborough Gentle Dental

I highly recommend Shri & Gentle Dental Crowborough. My gums/bones had really deteriorated through anti-cancer treatments. I dreaded my first visit for fear of losing teeth but I needn’t have! The team were just brilliant. I had the laser treatment over 3 sessions which was surprisingly painless. Now 3 weeks later & I am simply astonished at the results. My gums are healthy & tight again & my teeth feel much stronger already. I’m so happy with the results. Thank you!

I never thought I would look forward to going to the dentist until I came across Gentle Dental. All of the staff are so warm and welcoming and are brilliant at creating an inviting atmosphere in what can be quite a sterile environment. The dentist Shri is an absolute asset to the practice. His kind demeanour immediately puts you at ease and he is the literal embodiment of the 'gentle dentist'. I had my first ever filling last week and was so nervous about having an injection in my mouth but he was calm and patient and to be honest - I didn't even feel it! Great practice, thank you.

Just seen Haris at Gentle Dental - I needed advice about medication I may need to take alongside cancer treatment that could affect my teeth and jaw. After a thorough dental examination he reassured me all was well and the medication would be beneficial to my overall health. Great to be able to access help and advice like this!Thanks so muchTracey Moule

Haris and Paige were very kind to my elderly mother when I took her for her first visit since she moved into the area. Haris was helpful and informative issue with her dentures. Receptionist made sure a space was available for me to park.

What a fantastic dentist!The staff are always so lovely and friendly. I particularly had a great experience today...I have massive anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist and since recently moving to the area, I needed a filling. I have a big phobia of needles, however, the dentist Shri and dental nurse Paige were absolutely fabulous! They were so supportive and understanding, they were so easy to talk to and kept me distracted while having the injection. Shri then kept me updated throughout the entire filling and was very positive about everything. I feel my fear has definitely gone down after this visit. I couldn't recommend more!

Where do I start, I have never been happy with my teeth so I thought my only option was to go abroad and get my teeth done but then I had my invisalign consultation at gentle dental and they said what they could do. I was still very skeptical, but my wife wanted me to give it ago before going abroad. My treatment plan was 6 months, which I have just completed, and I must say I am very happy with the final picture. So please come and have a consultation and see what they can do for you before going abroad. I just want to say a big thanks to the whole team at gentle dental. I am always very helpful and professional.

I have been going to Gentle Dental for a while now and I’m an extremely nervous patient with complex health problems and a wheelchair user. The receptionists and the Dentists are amazing. They are friendly and go out of their way to help you.I saw Shri today and he and his assistant were brilliant. I could stay in my wheelchair as have trouble transferring to the chair. All my questions and concerns were answered in great detail. I was treated with respect as always and although I still get extremely nervous before my appointments they soon make me feel more relaxed. I highly recommend Gentle Dental definitely a 5***** practice.

I honestly can't rate gentle dental enough! I've always suffered with extreme anxiety when it comes to dentists, this being due to a bad experience with a dentist many years ago. I then got recommended gentle dental, and since I've been with them it has truly been a life changer! I truly have lost my fear and I don't have to be put to sleep for anything at all anymore. I can't stop smiling and I couldn't be more happier. Every single member of staff is so polite, happy and they are always smiling. I love the positive and happy atmosphere every time I walk in. I honestly can't thank them enough for what they have done for me so far, and for being so truly amazing and supportive and getting me out of my fear. I have and will be continuing to recommend gentle dental to everyone.

I had a recent filling elsewhere and they cracked my tooth. Gentle dental were fabulous in fitting me in quick and tooth the whole tooth out for me. Hardly any pain and no side effects after.This was in September 2023.Like most people, I avoid the dentist as I’m scared. My daughter had recently had treatment from Shri and I thought I’d book in for a check up. Shri and Paige were lovely. He checked all my mouth and teeth, answered my questions and gave me a good report, just the hygienist would be good. I walked to the receptionists Julie and Alison commenting that Shri was nice! Little did I know he was behind me!! Well, that made me hot and red!!! In all honesty, Gentle Dentle have helped me and my daughter out in emergencies and the check up today was pain free. You get text and calls as reminders which isn’t a bad thing if, like my family, we have lots of appointments.Hygienist is in May so watch out for my review!!
