Minor procedures in the mouth can be performed under local anaesthesia. A syringe with a local anaesthetic will be used, like at the dentist’s.
If the procedure is extensive, it will be performed under general anaesthesia. The surgeon will discuss this with you in detail.
The most common ailments are:
- Tooth extractions
- Jaw cysts

- Dental cleaning (oncological, cardiological, organ transplantation ...)
- Soft tissue biopsies/excisions
