Dental hygiene is essential in our day to day lives. If you fail to care for your teeth, it can lead to several oral problems. In many instances, it demands to extract one or more teeth as a solution. Tooth extractions are usually carried out as a last option. Gum diseases and tooth decay are the two most common reasons why tooth extraction may be needed. At A1 Dental Clinic, we offer painless tooth extraction to the patients of all ages, no matter what reason has led you to that situation.
Reasons For Tooth Extraction:
- If a tooth is infected or decayed
- If you’ve broken a tooth accidentally
- If you have crooked teeth
- If you have severe gum disease
- If there is not enough space for wisdom teeth to grow
- If the teeth are wrongly positioned
What Does The Process Involve?
The first step is a radiographic examination to assess the position and condition of the tooth roots and the surrounding bone.
We will give you a local anesthetic in the form of an injection to numb the tooth to be removed, and the surrounding tissues.
Our dentist will use specialised tools and devices to loosen your tooth. Forceps or tweezers are used to twist the tooth around until it comes out.
Once the tooth has been removed, we will give you some gauze to bite on to stop the bleeding. The entire process will not take more than 20 to 30 minutes, and you can return home the same day.
As dentists, our primary goal is to preserve your natural teeth. That’s why we recommend tooth removal only when there is no other treatment available to save the tooth.
