Tooth Extractions: Your Path To Relief

Tooth extraction is a standard dental procedure aimed at removing a tooth from its socket in the jawbone. At Sandhurst Family Dental Clinic, extractions are performed with the utmost care for patients who require this service due to various circumstances.

When to Consider Tooth Extraction:

Irreparable Tooth Damage:

Extraction may be necessary if decay or damage extends to the pulp or if an infection cannot be resolved with root canal therapy.

Orthodontic Correction:

Extractions are sometimes needed to address overcrowding and facilitate alignment.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth:

Removing wisdom teeth can prevent potential complications, such as pain, infection, and crowding of adjacent teeth.

Risk of Infection:

In cases of a compromised immune system, even the risk of infection may necessitate tooth extraction.

At Sandhurst Family Dental Clinic, your comfort is our top concern. We utilize advanced techniques and sedation options to ensure a virtually painless experience. Post-procedure, our team provides detailed aftercare instructions to promote swift healing and discuss replacement options, like dental implants or bridges, to restore your smile’s functionality and appearance.

    Find the answer To your question

    Why would I need a tooth extraction?
    Extractions may be necessary for several reasons, including severe decay, infection, impact trauma, overcrowding, preparation for orthodontic treatment, or impacted wisdom teeth. Each case is assessed individually to ensure it's the best course of action.
    What is the process for a tooth extraction?
    The process involves numbing the area around the tooth with local anesthesia, then gently loosening and removing the tooth with specialized instruments. Sedation options are available for your comfort upon request.
    Does tooth extraction hurt?
    You shouldn't feel pain during an extraction due to the anesthesia. You may feel pressure, but our skilled dental team ensures the procedure is as comfortable as possible. Any post-procedure discomfort is typically manageable with over-the-counter pain relief.
    What can I expect during recovery from a tooth extraction?
    Recovery involves forming a blood clot in the socket to aid healing. We’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, which include rest, avoiding certain foods and activities, and managing discomfort or swelling with medication if necessary.
    How long does it take to heal from a tooth extraction?
    Initial healing typically takes one to two weeks. Full healing, especially of the bone, may take a few months. Follow-up appointments may be necessary to monitor progress.
    Are there options to replace a tooth after an extraction?
    Yes, we offer several options for tooth replacement, such as dental implants, bridges, or dentures. We’ll work with you to determine the best solution for your situation and begin the restoration process once healing is sufficent.
