Although we do our best to “save” your teeth, occasionally extractions may be necessary due to wide-spread damage, caused by injury or disease.
Often seen as a fairly daunting process, our dentists here at Granta Dental will endeavour to ensure that your treatment is as pleasant and as pain-free as possible. Our experts will thoroughly examine the extraction area, ensuring that it is safe and fully prepared for tooth extraction; we aim to make you feel as comfortable as possible during the whole process.
The procedure itself is fairly straightforward and requires a careful after-care routine that involves rest and gentle care of the treatment site, ensuring that you experience as little discomfort as possible.
A common reason for tooth extraction is the need for removal of wisdom teeth. While many people’s wisdom teeth never actually break through the surface of the gums, they can sometimes present themselves in the form of an infection or an abscess, thus resulting in the need for extraction.
Our dentists will examine the area thoroughly, making a well-informed decision as to whether your wisdom tooth needs removing or not. Our dentists are highly experienced and trained in this common procedure, so you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.
We also have options to calm the nerves of anxious patients. We would have an in-depth conversation with you before the procedure to ensure that any questions you may have are answered.
If you have any further questions regarding tooth extraction or you’d just like to make an appointment then please call us on 01223 461381.
