Lot No: 1Lot title: Shropshire

1)Short description

During 2013/14 a review of oral surgery referrals was undertaken to identify the appropriateness of treatments undertaken in secondary and primary care. 3 ‘levels’ of care are now recognised and the publication of a national commissioning guide is expected Spring 2015, describing a Level 2 oral surgery service, which should be delivered by dentists with enhanced skills. The Level 2 Primary Care Minor Oral surgery Services will include a range of procedures to be confirmed nationally. However in advance of this the Area Team are including:
1. Extractions of single and multi-rooted erupted teeth with ‘special difficulty’ i.e. with associated pathology (such as ankylosis)
2. Removal of wisdom teeth as indicated by NICE (3)
3. Removal of buried roots and fractured or retained root fragments in bone.
4. Removal of simple impacted/ectopic/supernumerary teeth in bone.
5. Exposure of teeth (removal of the gum/bone over the surface of tooth preventing eruption). Only to be carried out to an orthodontic treatment plan which has had specialist input.
6. Removal of simple epithelial polyps
7. Removal of mucoceles
8. Removal of denture induced hyperplasia (with no sinister features)
9. Surgical endodontics on single rooted anterior teeth, canine to canine (which have a satisfactory root filling in place, as indicated by a pre-operative periapical radiograph, and have apical pathology associated with them which has not diminished following root canal treatment or is not amenable for repeat RCT ( a reasonable healing period should have been allowed for post surgical endodontic treatment)
10. Removal or enucleation of simple dental cysts.
