At Garden Dental & Orthodontics, we always strive to save the tooth and restore it to its former shape and function, but this is not always possible, and extractions are necessary for teeth that are too loose or damaged to be saved.
Some of the instances when wisdom teeth extraction may be recommended include:
We offer two types of wisdom teeth extractions for our patients in Spruce Grove Alberta and the neighbouring Stony Plain and Parkland areas:
Though a general anaesthetic is administered with surgical extractions, both procedures are actually painless, though you may experience some pressure or pulling as the tooth comes off.
Here are a few things to expect during the tooth extraction process.
Before the procedure, we will examine your medical and dental history in order to identify any allergies, medical conditions, recent surgeries, and medications you’re taking.
We will administer a local anaesthetic so you won’t feel any pain from your gums. When we have anxious patients, we may administer a sedative in order to make them feel relaxed during the procedure.
When the local anaesthetic has taken effect, we can start the procedure.
The root section of your teeth is firmly encased in the bone and anchored by a ligament. During tooth removal, we will expand the socket, separating the tooth from this ligament. This process involves rocking the tooth from different angles until it loosens enough to pull out.
There won’t be any pain, but you may experience some pressure at the site. In the event that you feel any pain, please tell your dentist right away.
After removing the tooth, we will close up the extraction site by:
After the tooth extraction procedure, you may need to bite down on folded gauze to control bleeding and help the blood clot. If you feel some discomfort, we may administer some anti-inflammatory medication to relieve pain. Some ice packs may also be necessary to reduce any swelling.
It is important that you don’t use a spit or straw, or even smoke, as these actions can cause bleeding when the clot dislodges.
Our wisdom teeth removal cost is reasonable. You may call us to inquire about wisdom teeth removal cost and dental extraction cost.
