The thought of having a tooth extracted might make you feel a bit uneasy, but the caring and professional team here at Dr Elizabeth Melvin Dentistry are here to make sure your procedure is comfortable and stress-free from start to finish.
If you have advanced tooth decay or an impacted wisdom tooth, you may require oral surgery to have them safely extracted. Depending on your particular case and the severity of your problem, you will be given anaesthetic during the procedure.
It is always important to seek the advice of a dental professional if you are worried about any of your teeth. Never attempt to pull out your own tooth at home as this could cause a more serious problem for you. Dentists have the right equipment and sterile environment in which to perform this type of procedure with the utmost care and your recovery will be fairly quick. In the case of wisdom teeth extractions, you may have some swelling after the procedure and discomfort that can be eased with over the counter painkillers.
