Tooth Extraction Albury
Sometimes, an extraction is the best option for your overall dental health.
Dr Vinayak Chowdhry will always discuss treatment options with you and try to avoid extracting a tooth if he can.
What is the Treatment Like?
All our dental therapies, especially dental extractions, use local anaesthetics to ensure your comfort before the actual treatment begins. The quicker we can alleviate your symptoms, the better the care we can provide. This is why we work so hard to see you as soon as you arrive at our office.
Our patients know that we are dedicated to keeping them comfortable throughout their entire dental experience. We also offer you Penthrox to relax you.
After the area is numbed, Dr Vinayak Chowdhry removes the infected tooth and prescribes any necessary medications to ease the pain or clear up infections. Most people can return to work the following day, and the area is usually completely healed within two weeks.
COMMON REASONS TEETH NEED TO BE EXTRACTED
- Relief of toothache pain
- Severe tooth decay
- Broken teeth
- Advanced periodontal disease
What Happens After my Extraction?
Losing a tooth can affect the other teeth in your mouth, allowing them to shift out of place over time.
Dr Vinayak Chowdhry will discuss this with you prior to your extraction and identify methods of tooth replacement prior to removing your tooth.
This way, you can have a clear plan in advance of having your tooth removed and know exactly what to expect afterwards.
Kreativ Dental Albury provides emergency scheduling, affordable treatment planning, no surprise expenses, and can give you the long-term results that your smile deserves.
WISDOM TEETH: Keep Your Mouth Healthy with Regular Dental Check-ups
Wisdom teeth usually emerge from the gums between the ages of 17 and 24. They are the last teeth to push through the gums. Some people never develop wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth don’t usually cause any trouble and don’t need to be removed, however if there isn’t enough space for them to grow up at the back of your mouth, they will become impacted, and they will also cause severe painful swelling or infection. Impacted teeth need to be surgically removed in order to relieve the symptoms.
After Tooth Extraction Albury
After wisdom tooth extraction at Kreativ Dental Albury, your dentist will advise you to rest until the effect of the anaesthetic or sedation have passed.
After a local anaesthetic, it may take several hours before the feelings come back; you should take special care not to bump or knock the area. You will be able to go home when you feel ready.
If you are given general anaesthetic or sedation, you will need to arrange for someone to drive you home.
You may be given painkillers, antibiotics and mouthwash solutions to take home.
What To Do After Surgery
The following tips will help you speed up your recovery:
- After wisdom tooth removal, bite gently on the gauze provided and change it every 30 minutes
- Call your Albury dentist if you still have bleeding 24 hours after your surgery
- While your mouth is numb, be careful not to bite the inside of your cheek, lip, or tongue
- For 24 hours after surgery, do not expose yourself to too much sun or do exercise, as physical activity may increase bleeding
- Try using an ice pack on the outside of your cheek for the first 24 hours for 2 or 3 days.
A full medical history will be taken before any clinical procedures take place. Due to regulatory requirements, we must inform you that any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do teeth extractions hurt?
Typically, during a tooth extraction procedure, sedation is administered to the patient to make them feel relaxed and comfortable.
Also, many teeth that are subjected to extraction have nerves that are dead or dying, which means that the affected tooth may not be able to send pain signals out.
What happens during a tooth extraction?
One of the most common questions we get from our patients is what happens during a tooth extraction. Teeth extractions are a dental procedure that removes not only the tooth but the root of the tooth as well.
The tooth root is the portion of the tooth below the gum line, and the tooth crown is the area of the tooth above the gum line.
During a tooth extraction, the entire tooth is removed either to help correct misalignment, adult teeth not growing in, or to deal with a damaged tooth that cannot be repaired.
What are the signs I need a tooth extraction?
There are several signs that you might need a tooth extraction.
- There’s not enough room in your mouth for the tooth to emerge
- A tooth is causing repeated gum infections (periodontitis)
- A tooth has been damaged beyond repair in an accident
- The tooth is decayed and causing you pain
- The tooth no longer provides you with a functioning biting surface
