We endeavour to provide pain-free, stress-free dental extractions in a friendly and supportive environment.
Extraction is another word for removal. Extractions are not an uncommon procedure and are needed for a variety of reasons. Your friendly dental team will guide you through the process at every stage with calmness and clarity.
There are numerous reasons for needing an extraction. You may need to make a little room for orthodontic treatment (braces), or you may have wisdom teeth coming through that repeatedly cause problems. For the vast majority of patients, extracting a tooth is the last resort for a tooth that has had multiple treatments in the past, and there are no other options left.
Firstly you will be greeted and settled in our comfortable chairs. Once you are happy, we will explain everything that will follow, including any minor risks involved. If you are content to proceed, we’ll then provide a local anaesthetic to numb the area to prevent you from feeling any pain. It is normal to feel sensations such as pressure during extraction, but you will not feel anything sharp.
We will be checking your comfort levels regularly. We will stop immediately if you have any sensation other than pressure or pushing. Once the tooth has been removed, you’ll be given a gauze pack to bite on to stem any bleeding, and we will take you through instructions for aftercare.
Some soreness is to be expected for 2-3 days after having a tooth removed. Pain should be easily managed with over-the-counter medication from your local pharmacy. If your pain level is increasing, regular painkillers are not effective, or the pain keeps you awake at night. Please call us as soon as possible as this may be an indication of infection.
