Extraction is the removal of a tooth and its root from the mouth. It is a routine treatment that is frequently done with minimal interference.
After all other alternatives have been explored, extractions are used as a final resort. A tooth cannot be repaired for a variety of reasons.
When teeth become inflamed on a regular basis or are susceptible to chronic gum disease, infection, or periodontitis, they may need to be extracted.
You may suffer post-operative discomfort after undergoing oral surgery. This usually lasts two to three days and is readily treated with over-the-counter medicines.
We will always take the time during your dental appointment to discuss your aftercare and recuperation.
A thorough description of the process is required so that you are aware of any potential problems, even if they are improbable. After you have had a consultation and discussed your expectations before, during, and after your treatment.
When you’re ready, we’ll give you a local anaesthetic to make the extraction as painless as possible. Before removing the tooth, a dentist will carefully examine the surrounding area to ensure it is numb. You may feel pressure during the extraction, but you will not be uncomfortable.Back to General Dentistry
