Treatment for complex mouth, face, jaw and neck problems, ASAP
Whether you need a complicated dental extraction, treatment for a mouth ulcer or surgery to correct a jaw deformity, the Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons at The Chaucer have the expertise to help.
To ensure you receive the best care possible, your consultant works closely with specialists in other fields, including plastic surgeons, dermatologists, ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) surgeons, dentists and speech therapists.
When you choose a private appointment at The Chaucer, you’ll benefit from treatment tailored to your specific requirements, access to state-of-the-art diagnostics and rapid access to an experienced Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon.
The Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons at The Chaucer can provide:
Due to the complexity of many of these treatments, you will usually be referred to our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons by your GP, dentist or a consultant in another speciality.
They will also carry out a clinical examination of the affected area(s).
Most people will have previously had dental X-rays carried out by their dentist and these, along with relevant medical notes, will normally be accessible to your consultant at your appointment.
There are a number of diagnostic tests and assessments that can be helpful when investigating oral and maxillofacial problems and these can all be easily arranged by your consultant when required. For example, some lesions in the mouth will require a biopsy to analyse.
Your consultant will use your clinical history, the results of their examination and any test results to make a diagnosis and plan the best treatment for you. Some treatments will require input from a multidisciplinary team, and your consultant will work closely with other specialists like orthodontists when needed.
Every aspect of your care, from assessment and diagnosis through to treatment and aftercare, will always be discussed with you so that you know what to expect. If surgery is required, your consultant will explain how it will be done and what results you should expect to see as a result.
Any surgery has risks and potential complications. These will be explained to you so that you have the details you need to make an informed choice about any treatment.
People choose The Chaucer for their Oral and Maxillofacial surgery for a variety of reasons. Some will have been referred from their GP, dentist or other healthcare professional. Some will have private insurance while others will be happy to self-pay rather than having to wait many months to receive treatment elsewhere.
Many of our patients are from Canterbury itself, while others travel to us from other areas of Kent.
Regardless of how you’ve been referred to us or the distance you’ll be travelling to visit with us, at The Chaucer you will always benefit from:
They will thoroughly investigate the cause(s) of your problem and then discuss suitable treatment options available. If surgery is needed, such as removal of an impacted wisdom tooth, they will be able to arrange that for you without delay.
Whatever problem you’re struggling with, and whether or not you require surgery, a consultation with a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon at The Chaucer can give you reassurance and peace of mind that you’re being properly looked after and getting the expert advice you need.
We treat self-pay and privately insured patients and can provide quick access to an expert. We look forward to helping you.
