We may also consider an extraction in cases where wisdom teeth have become problematic or to allow for orthodontic treatment. We understand that the idea of having a tooth extracted might seem worrying – our friendly team is here to make you feel at ease and during your appointment.
Here are a few reasons why you might require an extraction:
Extractions are performed under local anaesthetic and generally take between 20-40 minutes to complete. A very fine needle is used to numb the area and we will then carefully remove the tooth. We’ll take you through the correct aftercare to follow during your recovery period at home.
After recovery from an extraction, we recommend investing in your future dental and oral health and wellbeing by replacing the missing tooth or teeth. Filling the gap with a bespoke restoration such as a dental implant or bridge may help to improve the appearance of your teeth and how they bite together.
Choose Linden Dental for extractions because:
Compassionate team: if you’re anxious about having a tooth extracted, please do let us know before the procedure and we’ll do our best to help you feel at ease.
Your oral health will benefit: the risk of damage to neighbouring teeth and gums due to infected or badly positioned teeth will be reduced.
Be pain-free: any associated pain will subside.
A focus on preventative dentistry: prevention is at the forefront of our approach to dentistry. After your extraction, we’ll talk you through how best to care for your teeth, so you can minimise your risk of losing teeth and requiring extractions in the future.
