The progression of Periodontitis can result in a painful infection and/or loose teeth. Unfortunately, at this stage, the affected teeth may need to be extracted.
Dental decay that has progressed into the nerve chamber of the tooth, and will not undergo Root Canal Therapy will also need to have the tooth removed.
These types of extractions can be easily performed with the use of local anesthetic to numb the area. You will not feel any pain during the procedure. Recovery time varies based on each individual as well as how difficult it is to remove the tooth. The dentist may prescribe antibiotics and/or painkillers if necessary in order for pain relief to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Gentle and Comfortable Wisdom Teeth Extractions
The removal of wisdom teeth is a very common procedure performed here at SNK Dental. Our dentists are highly experienced at performing gentle and painless wisdom tooth extractions at our clinic in St Marys.
Our dental clinic is equipped with the latest technology so you get the best care possible. We go the extra mile to ensure that you are made to feel comfortable and relaxed. Wisdom teeth removal can be completed either in the chair under Local Anesthetic or under General Anesthesia (GA).
Wisdom teeth extractions or surgical removal of teeth may be more difficult to remove depending on the position. There may be a need for removal of bone and/or stitches. The recovery time varies depending on the individual case. However, we normally recommend preparing yourself for up to 4-5 days off work or other activities. These procedures are also completed in the dental chair with the use of local anesthetic.
If you experience anxiety about dental procedures, we can offer you additional options. You can discuss these concerns with our friendly staff or with the dentist at your consultation appointment.
Don’t Wait Till It Hurts
While some patients wait until their wisdom teeth to cause pain before they take any action, we recommend that required extraction should take place as soon as problems are identified to reduce the duration of pain and overall discomfort.
At SNK Dental, we want to ensure you receive the highest standard of care, which is why in any unusual or highly complex cases you may be referred to an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon.
