Extractions & Oral Surgery 

Have you had your wisdom teeth checked?

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

  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 feeling anxious.

  3. Dentists have the right equipment and a sterile environment to extract teeth with the utmost care. Your recovery is often surprisingly quick.

  4. You may have some swelling and discomfort after the treatment that can be eased with over-the-counter painkillers.

  5. In some cases, antibiotics may be prescribed to reduce the risk of further infection.
