Tooth extraction with our dentist
Do you have an upcoming tooth extraction which you would like to prepare yourself for? Maybe, you are yet to book in for your oral surgery due to not knowing what you can expect. Sometimes this can be a cause of nervousness or anxiety. If you are feeling this way then we would encourage you to contact us at Haymarket Dental Care. Our team is trained to make sure you are comfortable and calm during your time with us. We know that for some patients having an idea of what they can expect helps with this.
So, what can you expect from a tooth extraction with us?
With our dentist in Haymarket, an X-ray may be required before your tooth extraction procedure. This can help us to determine the severity of your dental problem. It’s possible that you may need some local anaesthetic to reduce the discomfort you feel during the procedure. If you are anxious, you may benefit from having some sedation. Please speak to a member of our team for more advice on this, and to discuss whether it is a suitable avenue for you.
During your extraction with our dentist in Haymarket a sterile environment will be used in order to minimise the risk of infection. Utmost care will be taken by our qualified practitioners while extracting your tooth. We find that for straightforward procedures patients are often surprised by how quickly they recover from extractions. Where advanced gum disease is present, you can expect to be prescribed antibiotics to help lower the risk of further infection.
When it comes to wisdom tooth extractions, recovery can be expected to take a little longer. It is normal to experience some swelling and discomfort post extraction, however this should be eased through the use of over-the-counter pain medications. If you have any questions following your procedure or you feel you are experiencing more discomfort than you should be then we would always encourage you to seek further advice.
What If I am a nervous patient?
At Haymarket Dental Care we know that familiarity with our team and our environment can make a positive difference when it comes to nerves surrounding dental care. When you come into our dentist in Haymarket our team will strive to make your experience with us as comfortable as possible.
We also recognise the importance of communication, and during your first appointment with us we take the time to listen to your needs and take them into account when we create a unique treatment plan for you. We are proud to offer gentle dentistry methods, including utilising topical anaesthetic gels when treating you, to ease any discomfort you might feel during dental procedures.
For many patients who have been nervous in the past, or experience anxiety when visiting the dentist this can create a barrier to receiving the dental care you need. For more information about how we can help you to visit us at Haymarket Dental Care, please get in touch with us.
Can my missing tooth be replaced?
In view of your upcoming extraction you could be considering what your options are for replacing your missing tooth or teeth. You may be pleased to discover that there are a couple of possible options for this. Dentures and bridges could be possible avenues to explore, and possibly dental implants. In order to determine which of these options would be the most suitable for you, a consultation with a qualified dentist is paramount. One of our practitioners would be pleased to discuss this with you further.
