In cases of advanced gum disease and tooth decay, teeth may need to be extracted. Some patients may also develop impacted wisdom teeth which can cause intense pain, alleviated by having them removed surgically.
It is important to note that adult teeth should only be removed at a dental practice where the team will use the safest equipment and perform the procedure in a sterile environment. This ensures the surrounding tissues are not damaged in the process and that your mouth can recover and heal effectively. Here at Dentiq we always promote the approach of preventative dentistry, and with regular hygiene appointments help our patients to avoid developing advanced tooth infections that result in tooth extractions. In cases of emergency, our team is qualified and experienced to extract teeth safely with minimised infection risk. Depending on your particular case and the severity of your problem, you will be given anaesthetic and offered sedation if you are anxious. It is important to always get the advice of a dental professional if you are worried about any of your teeth becoming infected or needing extraction.
