  • Preparing for orthodontic treatment.
  • Removing wisdom teeth that are causing discomfort or alignment issues.
  • Addressing overcrowding in the mouth.

What Does the Tooth Extraction Process Involve?

Our tooth extraction procedure includes:

  • Initial Examination: Assessing the affected tooth with X-rays and oral examination.
  • Sedation Options: Providing sedation for a comfortable, anxiety-free experience.
  • The Extraction: Removing the tooth efficiently and with minimal discomfort.
  • Post-Extraction Care: Advising on aftercare for quick and smooth recovery.

What to Expect After a Tooth Extraction?

Post-extraction care is crucial for healing:

  • Resting and avoiding strenuous activities for a few days.
  • Following specific dietary guidelines.
  • Managing discomfort with prescribed or over-the-counter pain medication.
  • Keeping the extraction site clean to prevent infection.
