5.0

Ringway Dental is a minimally invasive practice, and we always do everything we can to help prevent the need for a tooth extraction.

Unfortunately, however, there are times when a tooth extraction is needed to restore the full function and health of the mouth.

Why might I need a tooth extraction?

There are a variety of reasons why we may recommend a tooth extraction. Some of the most common include infected or impacted wisdom teeth, an overcrowded mouth, and in some cases, baby teeth that have yet to fall out when adult teeth erupt.

Some patients may also need to have a tooth extracted due to damage or decay that is beyond repair. While we always do everything we can to rescue and restore a natural tooth, sometimes the only viable option is extraction. If this is the case, we normally recommend replacing the tooth or teeth as soon as possible.

Is the treatment painful?

The prospect of a tooth extraction can be an intimidating one for many patients. Here at Ringway Dental, we will always put you at ease and make sure you feel informed – we often find amazing care and communication helps patients feel more comfortable.

To ensure your comfort, we’ll administer a local anaesthetic first. This means you won’t feel anything around the area being worked on, but will remain awake and aware for the appointment. If you are very uncomfortable and nervous at the thought of this treatment, we can also provide sedation which will place you in a dream-like state, leaving you unaware of what is happening.

What happens during the treatment?

Once the local anaesthetic has taken effect, we will gently widen the socket of the tooth being extracted before loosening and carefully removing it. Tp’he area being treated will then be thoroughly cleaned and we might have to administer stitches to help the wound heal more effectively. 

What should I do to care for it after the treatment?

We’ll go through all your after-care needs with you at the practice, but we do recommend avoiding hot and cold drinks for a while after receiving this treatment. It is very normal to begin to feel pain at the site once the anaesthetic has worn off, and if this is the case, we recommend taking an over the counter painkiller.
