Tooth extractions are a last resort treatment when we have explored all potentially viable options.

We may also perform a tooth extraction to address overcrowding in your mouth.

Treatment Guide:
(NB: treatment plan may vary for more complex cases)

  • Treatment time: 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Anaesthetic: Yes.
  • Recovery time: mild discomfort for up to a week (dependent on treatment).
  • Key benefit: improves your oral health/makes additional space in your mouth.
  • Post-treatment care: over-the-counter painkillers to control mild discomfort.

Our clinical team are experienced at performing gentle extractions, with a view to alleviating discomfort and reversing problems with your oral health.

In The Interests of Your Oral Health

We perform gentle tooth extractions in a number of scenarios including:

  • When teeth have failed due to decay or gum disease.
  • When wisdom teeth are impacted.
  • When a tooth has become loose due to injury.
  • Root canal treatment is not possible or has failed.
  • When there is crowding in the mouth preventing you from having orthodontic treatment.

FAQs

Is Tooth Extraction Completely Safe?

Our award-winning dentists’ knowledge of gum and tooth anatomy is exemplary. You will be in the safe hands of dentists who use personalised planning using technology which identifies the intricate network of sinuses and soft tissues in your mouth. With this knowledge, we can perform the most streamlined and precise treatment to remove the problem teeth, without minimal complications.

Do I Need to Replace the Gap Left Behind?

Wisdom teeth do not need to be replaced, nor to teeth that have caused overcrowding. However, we recommend a dental bridge, dentures or (best of all), a dental implant for replacing missing teeth. This won’t just benefit you from an aesthetic standpoint: oral health problems like shifting teeth and gum irritation won’t occur. Dental implants are the most effective treatment for ensuring the teeth, gums and jawbone co-exist healthily in the future.

Do You Help Nervous Patients?

Yes – we have a patient-centric care mentality at Meliora Dental. We are experienced at working with nervous patients who might need some reassurance before their treatment. We can take you through the treatment procedure step-by-step, so you know exactly what to expect. If you feel your dental anxiety is too overwhelming, we can also offer intravenous sedation to induce feelings of relaxation, and a ‘high’ during the extraction. This is a pioneering technique for temporarily removing feelings of worry and anxiety in patients and has been used in clinical settings for a number of decades.
