TOOTH EXTRACTION

TOOTH DAMAGED OR DECAYEY AND CAN’T BE REPAIRED?

Tooth extraction is a dental procedure which involves the complete removal of infected, damaged or otherwise problematic tooth from the mouth.

When to get a tooth extraction?

  • severe tooth damage and decay
  • gum disease
  • un-repairable broken tooth
  • an abscess or collection of pus on your gums or around your teeth
  • baby teeth not fallen out in time for new adult teeth
  • overcrowded teeth resulting in sore gums and eating difficulties
  • impacted wisdom teeth
  • certain medication may result in infected teeth

 

Only when a tooth is beyond repair and that no filling, cap or crown will suffice, you may require a complete removal of the tooth (a tooth extraction).  However, if you face any of the above mentioned issues, book a consultation with us where the dentist will talk through your options and provide you the best suited solution.

 

Before your Tooth Extraction

Our trained and experienced dentists and orthodontists will prepare you for the procedure if that’s the best suited solution for you. However, even before considering the procedure it is important to let them know about any relevant medical history or condition which could impact your procedure. This is essential for the smooth process of your tooth extraction. 

 

Procedure of Tooth Extraction

Your tooth/teeth will be removed under a local or general anaesthetic depending on the surgery. This will keep you awake during the procedure but will completely block the pain from your gums. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect and the dentist has confirmed the same, your tooth socket will be widened to help loosen your tooth before the removal. You might feel a slight pressure as the tooth is gently removed however the anaesthetic will help alleviate the pain. If you feel any pain or discomfort, please inform your dentist.

 

After Tooth Extraction

After the tooth extraction, your gums may bleed slightly for which you’ll be provided a soft padding to bite on for the bleeding to stop. Before you go home take a note of your dentist’s advice about looking after your teeth and gums. Make sure to take the prescribed painkillers, antibacterial mouthwash or antibiotics to ensure safe aftercare. A follow-up appointment is not always needed however you might need to visit your dentist to check how you’re healing.
