Oral Surgery (Extractions)
One of the main goals of dentistry is to prevent tooth loss. All possibilities should be explored to preserve and maintain the tooth prior to the removal of a tooth, as the loss of a single tooth can have a major impact upon your dental health.
Unfortunately, it is sometimes necessary to remove a tooth, due to:
  • Severe decay
  • Advanced periodontal disease
  • Infection or abscess
  • Teeth which are in the wrong position
  • Broken or fractured teeth
 
Teeth Impacted (frequently wisdom teeth)
Wisdom teeth, do not always grow in the correct position,. It is wise to get them checked and if appropriate have incorrectly positioned teeth extracted before they cause pain, infection, and gum disease. The flap of gum tissue that covers a partially submerged wisdom tooth also provides a great breeding ground for bacteria that can cause long-term gum problems.
 

Procedure

Having a tooth removed doesn't have to be traumatic. An anaesthetic is used prior to the procedure to make you more comfortable. After the extraction, there can be some tenderness in the surrounding area which is normal. There are certain risks associated with any surgery. Pain, bleeding, broken root tips and bone are possible risks, however every possible is taken to reduce these risks.
