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.
While every effort should be made to preserve the natural tooth, it can prove to be more beneficial to remove it completely. This can help to prevent problematic and repeated infections, and of course help to eliminate pain that patients may have been feeling from that damaged or decayed tooth. Another advantage is that removing damaged teeth can help to avoid the spread of decay and infection. Infection from the tooth could spread and enter into the blood stream. It can lead to the potential for sepsis, and also irreversible heart damage. Once a tooth has been extracted, unless it has been extracted to make additional room in the mouth, it will need to be replaced. Gaps between teeth can lead to shifting of the other teeth and can also lead to bone loss in the jaw. Working with your dentist, you can work towards a solution to replace the extracted teeth so that it need not prove to be a disadvantage to remove damaged teeth.

  • review rating 1  Erika is the worst dentist Ever ! I had an implant and root canal treatment with her and after that extensive bridge based on that. Over 3.5 years after that , i was kept in the dark coming back to her for check ups, no one ever told me how serious problem i have because of the treatment i have received from her, My gums were constantly swollen and i had pain around due to bridge. She kept sending me off with prescriptions which worked few months. Recently, i went to another dentist and he took a panoramic X- Ray which clearly shows that the implant was a huge failure and there was a huge bone inflammation around the implant and as a result of that the bone around has dissolved. There was no support for the implant as it was sitting on the lap of the bone. The root canal treatment was a also a huge failure as the x-ray showed a huge absence around the root and my new dentist could only remove both teeth as a result of this i lost the whole bridge I therefore do not want to recommend Erika to anyone PLease think twice

  • review rating 5  Myself and my family has seen Dr. Erika Barta regularly. Crown Dental helped our family in many ways, we always attend for regular check-ups and cleanings. And also got implants and bridges done by Crown Dental. The staff is very helpful and professional. The environment is very relaxed, you don't feel going to the dentist 🙂 . I always recommend the clinic to my friends.

  • review rating 1  I had an appointment at 9 am at Crown dental, the receptionist, me and the dentist were waiting for an assistant (Sofia) for an hour standing at the front door. When she turned up with absolutely no care in the world, she didn't say hi or sorry not to even mention that she hasn't pick up the phone from the dentist and the receptionist, just turned up out of the blue. I was already 1 hour late into my very important treatment, and when I finally got to sit down on the chair, starting with impressions, the doctor asked the assistant Sofia to prepare the impression and at the end she did awful proportions of the impression, it would not solidify, she has the cheek and very little care of me (patient), of my precious time and money and the stress I have to go through to get a crown done. Unfortunately I was not able to finish my treatment because there were other people booked in for an appointment so she had to return me back home. I travelled taking 2 buses to get there just to get an impression that wasn't even prepared properly. The assistant Sofia is a young person and definitely not trained up to be taking up a serious job like this. She is absolutely incompetent, patients health and best care isn't in her best interest, and the ethics behind performance absolutely makes her a person unable to take on such a serious and responsible job. The dentist was unable to do her job because of the lack of help and lack of consideration that the assistant Sofia offered her.

  • review rating 5  Both myself and my husband have been Dr Erika's patients for over a decade. Crown dental is the cleanest, most equipped dental practice I have ever been to. Both dentists and the nurses are highly qualified and are brilliant with nervous patients. My husband had a dental implant done here with A+ results. Their prices are highly competitive but without compromising on quality. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

    thumb HSLC Construction
  • review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  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.
