At Alpha Health Clinic, our number one priority is providing you with pain-free dentistry. Accordingly, your dentist will only consider extraction (removing a tooth) after alternatives have been explored.
Extractions are – more often than not – straightforward procedures requiring local or general anaesthesia. In providing comfort and in appeasing anxiety, Alpha Health Clinic ensures patients are provided with easy to understand information about the procedure, including why you need it, how the procedure will help and details about expected recovery time. The procedure will be followed up with a comprehensive pain management plan for reassurance.
WHEN SHOULD A TOOTH BE EXTRACTED?
Common reasons why a tooth/teeth need extracting include:
- Tooth/teeth being severely broken
- Severe tooth decay
- Serious gum disease
- Crowded teeth/mouth
- Problems associated with wisdom teeth.
Like root canal therapy, tooth extractions often provoke feelings of apprehension and fear. But, despite initial pain and varying recovery times (based on nature of the oral surgery), tooth extraction remains one of the most effective methods of helping patients suffering from acute and ongoing toothache. At Alpha Health Clinic, we take the nervousness out of tooth extraction by building awareness surrounding the advantages of removing a problematic tooth – putting your oral health and longstanding comfort first.
Long-term benefits of getting tooth extraction carried out at Alpha Health Clinic:
- Prevents the spread of infection
- Protects surrounding teeth from contamination
- Increases comfort
- Enhances overall oral health and wellbeing.
