In certain cases where a tooth has suffered significant damage or poses a risk to other teeth or gums, extraction may be necessary if alternative treatments are not feasible.
At 121 Dental Practice, New Malden, tooth extraction is considered as a last resort, determined by the specific situation and the extent of the damage. While we always explore other options, there are instances where extraction becomes the only viable solution for one or more teeth.
When conducting a tooth extraction, our standard procedure involves the use of a local anesthetic. This ensures that your mouth is numbed, providing a pain-free experience during the treatment while keeping you awake. The duration of the appointment varies based on the complexity of the extraction, and you will be informed of the expected time before the procedure begins.
In some cases, more than one tooth may be removed in a single appointment, and the dentist will guide you on the most suitable strategy for your specific situation.
Wisdom teeth, located at the back corners of the mouth, are typically the last to grow. Due to limited space in the mouth, wisdom teeth may emerge at an angle, causing pain, swelling, and/or infection. In such cases, removal becomes necessary for optimal oral health.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a complicated procedure and usually requires specialist skills. Hence we offer this specialist treatment by oral surgeon at our dental practice. In most of the cases it will require an OPG x-ray, and upon examination our oral surgeon can provide you with estimate of the cost. This treatment will require great aftercare and we will provide you all the details you need after the treatment
