Extractions & Wisdom Teeth Removals

Extractions & Wisdom Teeth Removals

Today there are many dental procedures that have been engineered to treat and ultimately save damaged teeth. There are, however, situations where considering tooth extraction is the only viable option in order to preserve good oral health.
Severe tooth decay and damage is often the primary concern facing patients. However, wisdom teeth removal is quite common and offers a number of benefits for the patient.
While the idea of tooth extractions is enough to send many into a tailspin of worry, it needn’t. In our clinic we offer our patients stress-free and pain-free tooth removal procedures. With an experienced gentle touch and the right equipment to ensure your comfort, you’ll find our clinic to be the right place to help you restore the health of your mouth.


What is tooth extraction?

Get results you love

Simply put, extracting a tooth removes it entirely. Any damaged tooth above the gum line is removed. The tooth structure below the gum line, along with the entire attached root system is also removed.
A tooth that has been extracted by your dentist cannot be re-attached. There are occasions where healthy adult teeth that have been knocked out may be successfully implanted.

When are tooth extractions necessary?

Decay in a tooth is the primary reason that tooth extractions are done. Severe damage to the tooth is another reason that an extraction is often needed. Wisdom teeth removal is often needed in order to resolve a number of oral health concerns.

Perhaps the wisdom teeth are impacted and causing pain. Or perhaps removing them is necessitated so that additional space in the mouth is possible when orthodontic solutions are being explored. Wisdom tooth extraction is one of the more common reasons for tooth removal treatments. Overcrowding, most often associated with molars, is an issue that can be resolved by removing the problematic teeth.

Infected and impacted teeth can cause a lot of pain for patients. They can also lead to the potential for other healthy concerns, up to and including heart problems.

Are there any other options to tooth extraction?

If your wisdom teeth are responsible for other dental concerns, then there really are no alternatives to consider.

  • Wisdom teeth removal can actually prove to bring with it a number of benefits for those who’ve been struggling with repeated infections and decay in these molars.
  • You will find that our experienced dentists are focused on the preservation of the natural tooth. Surgical tooth extraction is typically the last resort.
  • If a root canal treatment can help to preserve the structure of a natural tooth, then that will often be the first treatment offered to a patient.
  • Teeth that have extensive decay and that cannot be salvaged with a filling or root canal therapy, are better off being completely removed from the mouth.
What happens during a tooth and wisdom tooth extraction?
It might sound like it will be a painful procedure to remove a tooth. Prior to the extraction, your dentist will ensure that the tooth and surrounding gum tissue are completely numb. Patients should feel little more than pressure during tooth extractions. During the procedure, the dentist will grip the tooth firmly using specialised tools. The tooth will be rocked back and forth with the specialised tools. This will result in the socket widening slightly and the roots loosening. After a short amount of time, the tooth should be pulled free from your mouth. There are some more complicated extractions where the tooth could prove to be somewhat stubbornly set. In these situations, the dentist may need to break up the tooth and remove it in pieces. While this may sound like something that’ll be painful and cause more discomfort, it’s quite common. When teeth are anchored well, have curved roots or are impacted, it becomes necessary to take additional steps during the extraction. During the entire procedure you should feel only the slight pressure of the tooth being manipulated. After surgical tooth extraction patients may be wondering what type of healing they can expect. The good news is that tooth extraction healing is often swift and uncomplicated. Following after-care instructions will ensure that patients avoid a painful condition known as dry socket.

  • I've been a patient at Crown Dental for over 6 years. When I was younger I played professional Rugby and lost a good number of my front teeth due to a freak-accident (knee in the face). For years I had a denture, which was a hassle to eat with. It also made me self conscious in social interactions, until I could bare it no longer. Crown Dental was recommended to me and it literally changed my life in so many ways! Over this period I had 4 implants, 5 crowns, 1 bridge and several root canals done, along with a couple of fillings and cleanings. I now have an amazing smile that all my friends and family are complimenting me about, it restored my confidence and gave me a brighter outlook on life. Thank you Dr. Erika for changing my life.

    I was very lucky to come across Crown Dental 8 years ago. While other dentists were offering extremely complicated and unaffordable treatments, Erika came up with a much simpler and affordable solution to my issues. I have been going to Crown Dental all these years and have got all my dental work done there: crowns, extractions, cleanings and check-ups... I would definitely recommend Erika and her team in Crown Dental to anyone looking for a top quality, reliable and friendly dentist.

  • Done, two teeth filling here. Second one they had to redo because of their fault. During that second time I had to ask to stop drilling several times, because my jaw started uncontrollable spasms. After this rework pain became unstoppable and I had to remove nerves during vacation (spent 3 days for that). That doctor admitted that both fillings were made without the cofferdam, for cavities under them to grow and need to be redone. Also they've missed a big smelly cavity next to that tooth even while having 3!!! X-rays of that area. I don't recommend doing fillings there, because you will need to return soon for their upsale of veneer or expensive nerve removal. Also they are not cheap by any means.

    I was always scared of the dentist, but not anymore. I received my crowns at Crown Dental, and I couldn't be happier with the results. The treatment was pain free, the team made me at ease during the process. I can't stop smiling and showing my perfect teeth.

  • I would highly recommend. As someone who hates the dentist and put off going for years, I can say that going to Crown Dental is probably the best dental experience I've ever had. I am a very nervous patient, but Dr. Joanna is a brilliant dentist who really put me at ease.

    I went for a check up at Crown Dental two weeks ago, after looking at my teeth for approximately 30 seconds the dentist told me I had been grinding my teeth therefore needing a mouthguard/splint and had three cavities. I was shocked as I had no prior issues with my teeth and was not experiencing any sensitivity. I was very distressed that my teeth had deteriorated so rapidly I wanted to get a second opinion. I went to a different dentist in Dublin and I was told my teeth were 100% fine. Therefore I would NOT recommend visiting this dentist.

  • Great dentists and friendly staff! I had bone augmentation, 2 implants and 3 crowns done. The whole process took about a year due to the complexity but it certainly was worth it. I am delighted with the results and will happily recommend the clinic to my friends and family.

  • I went to Crown dental after my old dentist had run out of Options so I looked online and checked out other dentist even looked at going abroad my issue was I'm missing a few teeth from what I believe was a bad brace when I was young other dentist wanted to put metal braced false teeth in and I also needed some crowns so a lot of work!! Crown dental 1st of all fixed my teeth few fillings had to redo a root canal and even a chipped tooth and then some crown's!! and after all that offered me a valplast?? (Not sure if I have the right name)denture no metal! My teeth are now in brilliant condition and after years of no smiles I have mine back two years and love it. This is a long overdue review I found the staff and dentist all friendly and professional a very well run dental practice I have and I would recommend Crown dental! Cheers Garry

    I just had a visit with Dr Joanna today for a routine clean and to ask about veneers . during the consultation she noticed something more sinister with an infection that's been going on for over 15yrs . she was so informative,caring and really listened to all my questions and worries. most dentists I find are just there to make money but I found wirh joanna that she really wanted to help and not rush into veneers when there was concerns with my gums I may have a longer road then expected but I know I'm in good hands 🙏
