At AWBDP we perform tooth extractions as a last resort, when the tooth is beyond repair and more harmful in the mouth.
Need for tooth extraction:
Tooth extraction is performed only when it is deemed absolutely necessary. If your tooth is beyond repair and detrimental to your oral and general health, then extraction becomes the only way out.
It may also become necessary to remove teeth for orthodontic treatment purposes. If there is overcrowding and space is needed to be created then the teeth as advised by the orthodontist are removed.
Sometimes impacted wisdom teeth and baby teeth causing problems are also removed as advised by our dentists.
Procedure of extraction:
We will talk you through the whole process at the start which gives you the chance to ask any questions you have and to help you feel as comfortable as possible. You will be given local anaesthetic to completely numb the area.
Once the anaesthetic has been injected and taken effect, your dentist will gently loosen the tooth before removing it completely. We might then need to stitch up the empty socket to help it heal properly. Your dentist will give you all the instructions on how to look after the area for a few days and the do’s and don’ts.
If the procedure required is more complex, then we may refer you for a surgical extraction.
Extraction of impacted wisdom teeth:
Wisdom teeth (third molars) are the last teeth to come through and hence often don’t have space to erupt in the mouth. Sometimes these impacted wisdom teeth cause problems like decay, pain, infection, and need to be removed by a specialist ..
