Dedicated expert oral surgical care


Face & Smile’s surgical dentists are highly qualified to perform all aspects of surgical dentistry in our purpose-built Ballarat surgical centre.

Correcting or removing problem teeth or other difficult structures within your mouth will help resolve your dental concerns and optimise your dental treatment.

We offer our dental surgery procedures to be performed using sedation or sleep dentistry for patients seeking this service.

In our dental surgery we typically perform the following procedures:

Difficult tooth extractions

Surgical removal of a tooth may be required in cases where a simple extraction cannot be performed. For instance, to extract molar teeth with complex roots or with roots close to facial nerves, or to remove multiple extensively decayed or diseased teeth.

Wisdom teeth extractions

Between the ages of 17 and 25, wisdom teeth erupt. This may cause pain, crowding and disruption of orthodontic work. Also, being difficult teeth to clean, potentially leading to gum disease, removing wisdom teeth is a common and often necessary surgical procedure.


A frenectomy is the surgical removal of a tight piece of attachment tissue: 1) under the tongue, called the lingual frenum, and the cause of ‘tongue tie’ in babies and children; or 2) any cheek and gum attaching frenum structures, that pull at the gum causing gum recession, gum inflammation or other dental concerns.

Impacted canine teeth surgery

Upper canine teeth, in particular, sometimes fail to erupt completely due to lack of space caused by neighbouring teeth. This may require both surgical and orthodontic intervention to successfully move the canine tooth into its correct position.

Mucocoele removal surgery

Commonly found in the soft tissues of the mouth, a mucocoele is a fluid-filled swelling or cyst generally caused by a blocked or injured salivary duct. A mucocoele can be surgically removed to reduce the likelihood of more serious issue.


Other dedicated areas of surgical dentistry offered at Face & Smile include implant surgery and bone grafting surgery.

As with all our treatments, you’ll receive the highest quality of dental care, plus access to a dedicated team of dental professionals to ensure a smooth recovery and successful outcome.
