Extractions

In cases of advanced gum disease and tooth decay, teeth may need to be extracted. It is always important to get the advice of a dental professional if you are worried about any of your teeth. Never attempt to pull out your own tooth at home as this could cause a more serious problem for you.

Some patients may also have partially erupted or impacted wisdom teeth, which can cause intense pain. This is alleviated by having them removed surgically. 

Extractions may include the following:

  1. Before the procedure you may require an x-ray of your teeth.

  2. The treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic and offered sedation if you are anxious.

  3. Dentists have the right equipment and sterile environment to extract teeth with the utmost care and your recovery can be surprisingly quick.

  4. Atraumatic (Non-traumatic) extraction techniques are used to preserve as much bone as possible and reduce bleeding and discomfort.

  5. An additional procedure such as Socket Preservation may be carried out to maintain the bone volume and stabilise the neighbouring teeth as well as leaving the replacement options open for you.

  6. In the case of wisdom tooth extractions, you may have some swelling after the procedure and discomfort that can be eased with over-the-counter painkillers. In cases of advanced gum disease or periodontitis, antibiotics will be prescribed to reduce the risk of further infection.

Atraumatic (Non-traumatic) extraction techniques

Non-traumatic extraction techniques are designed to preserve as much bone as possible and reduce bleeding and discomfort. The Atraumatic Benex® extraction system guarantees a gentle and simple extraction of roots. It is nearly impossible to harm the soft tissue and the surrounding bone.

In addition to non-traumatic extractions, and the key to preventing the collapse of the socket is the addition of bone replacement material to the extraction socket.

Studies prove that the bone regeneration of the extraction socket is optimal with minimal bone volume loss. This is a great advantage for stabilising neighbouring teeth and keeping your options open for future treatment such as implants.

The Benefits

Safe and sterile procedure.

Quick recovery and healing time with reduced infection risk such as ‘dry socket’.
