The most common reason for an extraction is tooth damage due to breakage or decay. At Focus 32 Dental, we do all that we can to preserve your teeth, but there might come a time when extraction is the only option.
Extractions are often categorised as simple or surgical. Simple extractions are performed usually under local anaesthetic, and require use of instruments to elevate and grasp the visible portion of the tooth. Surgical extractions involve removal of teeth that cannot be easily accessed, usually because they have broken under the gum line. The tooth may have separated into multiple pieces to facilitate its removal.
At Focus 32 Dental, we endeavour to be as gentle as possible to ensure minimal pain and discomfort. Our team will provide you with post surgery instructions as well so that you are well informed of the care that needs to be taken after your tooth has been extracted.
