Do you have an infected tooth?
Are your teeth overcrowding your mouth?
Have your teeth severely decayed?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, extraction of the tooth may be necessary.
Teeth that have become damaged or are severely decayed may need to be removed.
In many cases, our dentists will try to save the tooth by providing root canal treatment, but it can be more beneficial to remove the tooth to prevent the spread of infection..
Teeth extraction is a common treatment for dental abscesses. This is a bacterial infection that causes pus to form on the teeth, in the gums, or in the bones holding the teeth in place. Also, severe injury to the teeth can often require extraction and surgery. In cases like this, dentists need to remove the tooth if it’s too badly damaged to be repaired.
Talk to our dentists immediately if you are suffering from badly damaged teeth, because if left unchecked, it will only get worse and cause you more pain.
Teeth extraction can be a daunting prospect, but the process is quick and straightforward. Our dentists will examine your teeth and give you an X-ray. Before surgery begins, the affected area will be anaesthetised so you experience as little pain as possible. When the tooth is removed, the area may need stitches to seal the wound.
After the extraction, our dentists will advise that you rest for a few days to recover. Pain killers and other relief medication can be prescribed to minimise any pain and discomfort. It is important to keep the wound clean and avoid harsh rinsing and brushing. Also, our dentists will advise that you only eat soft foods until the extraction site fully heals.
Please talk to our friendly dentists as soon as possible if you feel you may need a tooth extracted. Pure Smiles offers an efficient service with a wide range of treatments.
