If you have one tooth that’s always been a problem and causes pain, book a check-up (£58) and consult with our gentle dentists about tooth extraction.
“Though we prioritise preventative and restorative care and will do everything possible to save a tooth before considering extraction, sometimes, in particularly complex decay cases, it is the only option. Extraction may be necessary if you have a severe dental pulp infection or have lost gum or bone tissue due to advanced gum disease. We may also need to extract one or more teeth to reduce crowding before orthodontic treatment.”
Your smile is in safe hands.
To avoid leaving you toothless, which is the last thing we want to do, we always explore alternative treatments to save the tooth from being pulled.
What we can do:
The procedure is relatively quick and pain-free, with only pressure being felt.
The only difference between a complex and simple extraction is the recovery period.
The term “complex extraction” covers cases such as problematic wisdom teeth or any other tooth hidden beneath the gum line. These cases may require more invasive treatment methods, such as surgically removing gum and bone tissue. In these cases, patients will be under local anaesthetic, with further sedation options (IV and oral) for particularly phobic patients.
After an extraction, you must take care of the socket to avoid complications.
Refrain from consuming hot foods and drinks, using a straw, smoking, vigorous rinsing, or aggravating the extraction site when brushing.
“My regular dentist referred me to Dr Nehra and The Smile Gallery for a tooth extraction. I felt comfortable and in very safe hands when I walked in. Dr Nehra took the time to discuss my options and help me make an important decision. He and the rest of the team were all outstanding. I left the practice with clear instructions on ensuring that my socket heals properly. It’s been three days since, and all is well so far.” Paul, Tunbridge Wells
