Simple or surgical extractions
If you need to have a tooth extraction, you can rest assured that you are in safe hands. We take an x-ray and assess your teeth to ascertain the best method of removal, which will either be a simple extraction or a surgical extraction.
A simple extraction is performed on a tooth that is visible in the mouth. It involves loosening the tooth and removing it with dental forceps under local anaesthetic. A surgical extraction involves making a small incision in the gum to remove a tooth that may have broken off or is concealed under the gum.
Oral surgery involves diagnosing and treating oral conditions that require surgical intervention. These may include:
- Extensive decay
- A baby tooth that has failed to fall out
- An impacted wisdom tooth
- A broken tooth
- Making more space for orthodontic treatment
Dental implants involve placing implants in the jawbone to which replacement teeth are later fitted. Dental implants are a long-lasting solution to missing teeth and can also provide increased stability to a new or existing denture.
Tooth extraction is a routine oral surgical procedure in which a dentist or oral surgeon carefully removes a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. It's typically performed under local anaesthesia to ensure the area is numb and to minimise discomfort. The dentist or oral surgeon will gently loosen the tooth and then extract it using specialised instruments, followed by appropriate aftercare instructions for proper healing.
Impacted wisdom teeth, commonly known as third molars, can cause various oral health issues if not removed. They may grow at an angle or remain trapped within the jaw, leading to pain, infections, crowding, and even damage to surrounding teeth. Surgical removal of impacted wisdom teeth is often recommended to prevent potential complications and maintain overall oral health.
Yes, dental implants involve a form of oral surgery. They consist of surgically inserting artificial tooth roots into the jawbone to support prosthetic teeth or dental bridges. This procedure is performed by an oral surgeon or a specially trained dentist, and it is a highly effective long-term solution for replacing missing teeth.
The recovery period following oral surgery can vary based on the specific procedure and individual healing. Generally, patients may experience some swelling, discomfort, and minor bleeding immediately after surgery. Full recovery can take several days to a few weeks, during which proper post-operative care, including rest, prescribed medications, and following the dentist's advice, is crucial for optimal healing.
While oral surgery is generally safe, like any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications. These can include infection, excessive bleeding, nerve damage, and in rare cases, issues related to anaesthesia. It's essential to discuss these risks with your oral surgeon and follow their pre and post-operative instructions to minimise the likelihood of complications.
It's typically advised to avoid eating or drinking for a specific period before oral surgery, especially if anaesthesia is involved. Your oral surgeon will provide clear pre-operative instructions, which may include fasting for a set number of hours to reduce the risk of complications during the procedure. Always follow the guidelines provided by your surgeon to ensure a safe and successful surgery.
