When a tooth cannot be saved with restorations or RCT, an extraction may be suggested. When an extraction is carried out the Dentist will numb the area to alleviate any pain and discomfort. After the extraction, we will issue you with an “After Oral Surgery Care” leaflet giving you information and instructions to follow. It will also inform you what medications to take if you are experiencing pain.
Wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to erupt. They generally erupt when people are in their late teens or early 20’s. Some will experience no problems with their wisdom teeth, however, there is often very little room for them to erupt therefore the teeth may partially erupt or remain impacted in the jaw. When this happens, infection, pain, ulcers, food traps and crowding can result. Removal of these teeth is often necessary. Most wisdom teeth can be removed in our surgery at a very affordable price.
