Tooth Extraction South Croydon

Dental  Extractions – What You Need to Know

Although we always do our best to “save” your teeth, occasionally a tooth extraction may be necessary due to wide-spread damage caused by injury or disease.

What if I feel nervous about having an extraction?

We understand that you may be experiencing anxiety about your tooth extraction, which may be coupled with your extended discomfort due to your damaged tooth. For anxious patients, our calming chair side manner and relaxed tone, allow patients to successfully complete treatments.

What is the process?

  • Before any extraction, we will perform a thorough visual examination, and use x-ray imaging to determine the condition of the tooth. Such an assessment is vital not only to ensure a smooth, trouble-free extraction, but also is used to explore your future replacement options.
  • Most tooth extractions are a straightforward procedure, followed by at-home care that includes rest and gentle care of the extraction site. Your dentist will discuss what to expect during and after your extraction, as well as your aftercare.

Wisdom tooth extraction

Your tooth extraction may involve what are commonly referred to as “wisdom” teeth. Sometimes there may not be room in your mouth for your wisdom teeth and you might feel some pain or discomfort. We will see how – or if – your wisdom teeth are coming through, and then be able to make a judgement on whether or not to take them out.
