A surgical extraction is a procedure that occurs when a tooth has not yet broken through the gum line. There are times when a surgical extraction may be necessary to keep your teeth and regain optimal dental health, for example if a tooth has not yet fully grown into the mouth. When a surgical extraction is needed, you can turn to Caterham Smiles, our aim is to try to save every tooth.
We aim for you to have virtually painless extractions. We want you to feel calm and relaxed and try to feel almost no pain at all. Our surgical extraction specialists are specially trained to help patients conquer dental phobias and undergo surgical extractions in total comfort.
Due to advance technology, practice and great anaesthetics, nowadays tooth extraction is much less painful than ever before. Which gives paitents peace of mind. For a patient who needs a tooth extracted, we aim for them to experience little or no discomfort and only minor bleeding. Prior to a tooth extraction, the area surrounding the tooth is numbed with a topical and injectable anaesthetic.
Depending on the procedure level, some patients who have had their teeth extracted may need to take an antibiotic. We recommend taking any precautions following the procedure to try to prevent any infection from occurring. For example, smoking, vigorous brushing and rinsing and drinking liquids through straws are discouraged during the post-operative period. This could delay healing and possibly cause a wound to open. To help reduce swelling, a cold compress can be applied to the outside cheek near the extraction area; this can also help the area heal more quickly.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may have an impacted wisdom tooth:
- Facial Swelling
- Gum Swelling
Wisdom tooth pain is common amongst many adults; it occurs when new teeth grow too close to existing teeth. Problems such as crowding or improper bites can cause an infection. Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of the upper and lower regular adult mouth. There isn’t anything to prevent wisdom teeth from becoming painful, as Wisdom tooth pain is so common. Therefore, symptoms are easy to spot; they include inflammation, severe discomfort and sometimes infection. When wisdom teeth become impacted, they can be very painful; they can also harm your oral health. At Caterham Smiles, we aim to prevent further pain and help fix problems that may occur with your wisdom teeth.
