The CCS Oral Surgery Service will provide treatment under local anaesthesia. We will often offer treatment to patients at their first appointment depending on the appropriateness of referrals and the complexity of the procedure. It is essential that all referrals are comprehensive and include relevant radiographs of an acceptable diagnostic standard.

What are the main reasons for rejecting patients?

• Borderline eligibility referrals without accompanying radiographs
• Simple extractions of teeth for healthy individuals
• Dental clearances involving multiple, straightforward extraction of carious/periodontally involved teeth.
