Wisdom (and other) Tooth Extractions
There are many reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted. Whatever the reason, the dentists here at 3 Dental at Old Quarter are highly skilled and will ensure the procedure is comfortable and pain-free.
The dentist will use a strong local anaesthetic to completely numb the tooth and the surrounding tissues, in fact this numbness will last anywhere from 2 hours to 6 hours!
If you are a particularly nervous patient we can also offer you an oral sedation or IV sedation.
We can also advise you on the best treatment to replace any missing teeth. Our most popular option for replacing missing teeth are dental implants, whereby single or multiple teeth can be replaced.
Types of Tooth Extractions
1. Surgical Extractions
Surgical extractions are done by our oral surgeons.
These extractions may be slightly complicated due to various reasons. For example, teeth with curved roots or teeth buried under the gums may cause complications.
However, these will not be a problem for our fantastic oral surgeons who will keep you pain free and relaxed.
2. Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth tend to erupt from the age of 17 to early twenties.
Not everyone has all four wisdom teeth and some people may only have 1 or 2 wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth can cause problems when erupting through the gums by causing food traps which, in turn, can cause infection and bad breath.
If you require your wisdom teeth to be removed, our oral surgeons can do this in 3 Dental at Old Quarter.
