Extractions (Oral Surgery) – Orpington
Sometimes it becomes necessary for a tooth to be removed because of crowding, disease or trauma. No matter the reason, we use a conservative approach with all tooth extractions. While the title of “surgery” sounds serious, most oral surgeries & extractions are routine procedures. Our experienced oral surgeon will perform your procedure with expert skill to ensure the most comfortable recovery & the best possible result.

Tooth extractions typically involve the following:
Before the procedure you may require an x-ray of your teeth.
Depending on your particular case and the severity of your problem, you may be given a local anaesthetic and offered sedation if you are anxious.
Dentists have the right equipment and sterile environment to extract teeth with the utmost care and your recovery can be surprisingly quick.
In the case of wisdom tooth extractions, you may have some swelling after the procedure and discomfort that can be eased with over-the-counter painkillers. In cases of advanced gum disease or periodontitis, antibiotics will be prescribed to reduce the risk of further infection.
In cases of advanced gum disease and tooth decay, teeth may need to be extracted. Some patients may also develop impacted wisdom teeth, which can cause intense pain. This is alleviated by having them removed surgically. One area in which it is possible for dentists to specialise is oral surgery, an umbrella term for all dental procedures involving surgery, such as the extraction of teeth or wisdom teeth. It is always important to get the advice of a dental professional if you are worried about any of your teeth. Never attempt to pull out your own tooth at home as this could cause a more serious problem for you.
