Dental Extractions

If the nerve in your tooth has died or is dying and an infection is beginning to form, you have two options left:
1) Root canal treatment
2) Tooth extracted.

Unfortunately, the pain and cost of the root canal treatment take preference over keeping the teeth we have.

This procedure is completed using a local anaesthetic, which we use as well as a numbing gel on the gum beforehand. The importance of the aftercare is critical to a properly healed socket, as a lot of things can contribute to a dry socket infection. You will be advised by the Dentist about all things that can lead to infection, post extraction.

"Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner."
