Extraction

When tooth decay is so severe that the tooth cannot be saved with treatments, such as root canal and the help of antibiotics, the tooth needs to be removed. Other reasons for extracting a tooth might be severe gum disease and infection. Extraction might also be necessary for wisdom teeth, as well as crowded mouth, to prepare for orthodontics work, such as applying braces for better alignment of teeth.
Local anaesthetic is given before extraction, so you do not feel any pain. We cater to nervous patients, as well.

Post-Extraction Instructions
Bite on the gauze for at least 30 minutes, until the bleeding stops. If the bleeding continues, change the gauze and keep biting. Allow 2-3 days for the swelling and pain to subside. If the condition persists or worsens, please call us so we can give you further instruction, or to simply have a look.

During the first 24 hours after the extraction:

  • Do not spit or suck on the area
  • No smoking
  • No drinking of alcohol
  • Avoid hot food
  • Avoid spicy food
  • Limit yourself to moderate exercise
  • Do not brush/floss around the affected area
  • Rinse gently with warm salted water
