Surgical tooth extraction is a common, safe and sometimes quick procedure performed in-chair by your dentist.
The length of time it takes varies from just a few minutes to over an hour depending on the complexity of your condition, tooth type and the number of teeth being removed. For example, an impacted wisdom tooth will take significantly longer to remove than a much smaller, canine tooth.
During the procedure, a local anaesthetic is used to numb the area so that you do not feel any pain or discomfort. In cases where a tooth is too difficult to pull, it is removed in pieces. Once the tooth has been removed, a blood clot will form in the socket and the dentist will apply a gauze pad to help stop the bleeding. Sometimes the dentist will place a few self-dissolving stitches, to close the gum edges over the extraction site.
Before you leave our practice, the dentist and team will provide you with care instructions to ensure that your extraction site heals safely. We encourage all our patients to ask questions and to get in touch with our practice post-treatment with any queries about the healing process.
At Atria Dental®, our experienced team will do everything we can to save damaged teeth and ensure our patients recover from severe conditions. Cases, where this is not possible, can end up requiring surgical tooth extraction. This includes the following scenarios:– A severely decayed or damaged tooth cannot be saved– A wisdom tooth does not have enough space to grow and is causing problems – To relieve crowding before orthodontic treatments
