Your Dentist may recommend a Tooth Extraction for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, it may be due to a tooth becoming too damaged to address with other dental procedures. An Extraction is sometimes necessary to provide a solution to discomfort or pain.
During an Extraction, our Dentists use a local anaesthetic to numb the pain. Nervous patients may consult with their Dentist to receive sedation during the procedure.
Tooth Extractions for Children
Working extensively with families, we often see children who need Extractions when their permanent teeth begin to emerge. We also understand parents’ concerns about ‘shark teeth.’ This condition can occur when permanent teeth erupt behind or in front of a primary tooth, leaving one tooth in front of the other. In such cases, an extraction of the primary tooth may be recommended.
Occasionally, we may recommend a Tooth Extraction when patients see us for discomfort due to crowded teeth.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are typically the last permanent teeth to emerge. Due to crowding or erupting at an angle, or even not having a partner on the opposite jaw, they may cause severe discomfort or pain. Our Dentists at Hollis Dental Practice have Dental Surgery training and make this common dental procedure as comfortable as possible for the patient.
We have been coming to this dental practice for over 25 years and during that time have received first class treatment in a friendly & professional environment. Many thanks.
I registered at the practice as an NHS patient and I was very pleasantly surprised. Friendly receptionist and the dentist Dr Sam Protty was brilliant (and calming). He told me straight away what is the issue with my front teeth what other dentists failed to identify in the past 5 years.
