Extractions/Oral Surgery

In cases of advanced gum disease and tooth decay, teeth may need to be extracted. Some patients may also develop impacted wisdom teeth, which can cause intense pain and need to be removed. This is alleviated by having them removed surgically.

It is always important to get the advice of a dental professional if you are worried about any of your teeth. Never attempt to pull out your own tooth at home as this could cause a more serious problem for you.

Tooth extractions typically involve the following:

  1. Before the procedure you may require an x-ray of your teeth.

  2. Depending on your particular case and the severity of your problem, you may be given a local anaesthetic and offered sedation if you are anxious.

  3. Dentists have the right equipment and sterile environment to extract teeth with the utmost care and your recovery can be surprisingly quick. 

  4. In the case of wisdom tooth extractions, you may have some swelling after the procedure and discomfort that can be eased with over-the-counter painkillers. 

  5. In cases of advanced gum disease or periodontitis, antibiotics will be prescribed to reduce the risk of further infection.
