At Real Good Dental we do everything we can to avoid having to extract a tooth, however, in some circumstances a filling, crown or other treatment is not enough and an extraction is the only option. Extractions are carried out by our highly qualified and experienced dental practitioners.
Extractions are often required if a tooth has been broken in an accident or if it is severely decayed. When you come to a Real Good Dental surgery, your dentist will assess the condition of your teeth and present you with the options for treatment. If it is agreed to go ahead with an extraction, then he or she will explain to you the procedure and the steps involved. Rest assured that an extraction will be carried out under anaesthetic and that you should experience a minimum of discomfort both during and after the procedure. If necessary, a protective dressing will be put in place to cover the section of your jaw from which your tooth has been extracted. After the treatment, you should rest and avoid certain food and drink while your recover.
