Dental Extractions

In cases of advanced periodontal disease and dental decay, it may be necessary to extract teeth. Some patients may also develop wisdom teeth that are impacted, which can be extremely painful. This is alleviated by surgically removing them.

It is possible for dentists to specialise in oral surgery, which is an umbrella term for all surgical dental procedures, such as the extraction of molars and wisdom teeth. If you are concerned about any of your teeth, you should always seek the advice of a dental professional. Never attempt to remove a tooth at home, as doing so could result in a more serious problem.

1. Before the procedure, an x-ray of your teeth may be necessary.

2. Depending on the nature of your condition and its severity, you may be given a local anaesthetic and offered sedation if you are apprehensive.

3. Dentists have the necessary tools and a sterile environment to extract teeth with the uttermost care, and recovery time can be surprisingly short.

4. In the case of wisdom tooth extraction, you may experience swelling and soreness that can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain relievers. In advanced cases of gum disease or periodontitis, antibiotics are prescribed to reduce the risk of infection.
