Dental Extractions. We make extractions as comfortable as possible. You won't feel a thing!

The guide:

Unfortunately extractions are sometimes necessary.

Noone likes the idea of having a tooth extracted but here at Alexandra Road we make it our priority to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during any dental extractions. 

Routine Extractions

We use local anaesthetics to numb the tooth or teeth that we are extracting and once you are numb you should not feel any discomfort. The tooth is then removed from the socket and the area is packed to ensure that there is no bleeding once you have left the practice.

We ensure to book an appropriate amount of time in our diary for any dental extraction to ensure that you are not rushed during this sometimes complex procedure. 

Surgical Extractions

Sometimes when a tooth is heavily broken or trapped inside the jaw bone then we need to surgically remove the tooth. Our highly experienced oral surgeon Dr Kishore Kumar performs all for the surgical extractions including the removal of wisdom teeth.

We use panoramic special x-rays that we take in the practice to check the position of the tooth to check the position of important nerves which can sometimes become damaged during the removal; of wisdom teeth if the appropriate x-ray is not taken. 

Anxious Patients

Generally we are able to make all patients feel at ease however for special circumstances or very nervous patients we can prescribe mild sedatives to be taken the night before and on the day of the extraction to make you feel more at ease.

If you feel this may be beneficial for you please speak to Dr Al-Shaikh or Dr Kumar before the extraction appointment is made.
