Health-Focused Approach: We prevent potential infection and facilitate a swift recovery by performing tooth extractions under the strictest sterile conditions.
Pain Management: We utilise cutting-edge anaesthesia techniques to ensure a virtually painless procedure, ending the suffering caused by a problematic tooth.
Prevention of Further Complications: Timely tooth extraction can prevent the spread of infection and preserve the health of surrounding teeth.
Alleviate Pain and Discomfort: Tooth extraction can provide immediate relief from pain and discomfort caused by a problematic tooth, letting you enjoy food and speak clearly without worry.
Improved Aesthetics: In some cases, tooth extraction can improve dental appearance, especially if the tooth is damaged, discoloured, or misaligned.
A typical tooth extraction procedure at Robelle Dental Centre can take between 20 minutes and an hour, depending on the complexity of the case.
The dental office staff will inform the patient how long the procedure is expected to take before beginning and will provide pain medication if needed. Generally, the more complex the procedure, the more time it will take to complete.
It is important to follow the dentist’s post-operative instructions to ensure a successful recovery and minimise the risk of complications.
Prior to a procedure at Robelle Dental Centre, a comprehensive dental examination and X-ray imaging are required to assess the position of root structures. Patients should also avoid smoking, alcohol, and eating or drinking for at least six hours before the tooth extraction procedure. This allows for proper gum tissue healing and the formation of a blood clot that helps protect the exposed tooth root.
It is also essential to inform the dentist of any medical conditions or medications you are taking to reduce the risk of infection. Additionally, the dentist may recommend orthodontic treatment before the procedure to help preserve the tooth enamel.
Upon completion, the healing process of the tooth extraction typically takes several days, and a follow-up appointment may be necessary to ensure proper healing and evaluate the results.
Robelle Dental Centre provides comprehensive post-procedure support following a tooth extraction, including detailed aftercare instructions and follow-up appointments.
Typically, the initial healing period, where new bone and gum tissue grow in the extraction site, takes one to two weeks. Full healing, where the socket fills in with bone, often takes several weeks to months. Patients can expect to experience some pain and swelling immediately after the procedure.
However, with proper aftercare instructions from Robelle Dental Centre, patients can expect to recover quickly with minimal discomfort.
When undergoing a dental procedure requiring tooth extraction, some risks must be considered, such as infection, dry socket, damage to the surrounding teeth, and prolonged bleeding.
At Robelle Dental Centre, our experience helps to mitigate these risks. We provide comfort tooth extractions and detailed post-extraction care instructions to reduce the risk of infection. Additionally, we provide tooth replacement options, and our team is ready to provide relief from jaw pain and intense discomfort.
At Robelle Dental Centre, we provide a range of alternative treatments that may be viable options for tooth extraction. Natural teeth, as well as those that are adjacent, damaged, or extra, can often be saved with quality care.
For instance, a porcelain crown can be used to restore severely damaged teeth, while extra teeth that are damaged can be removed with minimal discomfort. Our dental practice also specialises in wisdom teeth extractions to ensure a stress-free experience.
In all cases, our providers strive to ensure that our patients receive the best care possible and that their natural teeth are preserved.
