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. This is alleviated by having them removed surgically. One area in which it is possible for dentists to specialise is oral surgery, an umbrella term for all dental procedures involving surgery, such as the extraction of teeth or wisdom teeth. 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:
Before the procedure you may require an x-ray of your teeth.
You will be given a local anaesthetic
Dentists have the right equipment and sterile environment to extract teeth with the utmost care and your recovery can be surprisingly quick.
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.
If you are nervous about your treatment you may be referred to an NHS specialist centre/ hospital and offered sedation. This could however delay your treatment due to waiting times.
Safe and sterile procedure.
Quick recovery and healing time with reduced infection risk.
Sustained good oral health.
