Tooth Extractions in St Marys – Gentle, Comfortable Tooth Removal
Are you worried about undergoing tooth extractions? St Marys dentists understand that while tooth extractions are a common procedure, they do cause a lot of anxiety for patients.
Being better informed and knowing what to expect during and after the procedure can relieve some of the anxiety and help you feel better prepared for the treatment.
The progress 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 tooth extractions at our St Marys dental practice can be easily be performed with the use of local anaesthetic to numb the area. You are expected to barely 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 to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible.

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 2-3 days off work or other activities. These procedures are also completed in the dental chair with the use of local anaesthetic.
If you experience anxiety about dental procedures, we can offer you additional options like knocking out and doing procedures under twilight sedation. You can discuss these concerns with our friendly staff or with the dentist at your consultation appointment.
Don’t Wait Until It Hurts
While some patients wait until their wisdom teeth 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.
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.
