Tooth Extraction Specialists in Gisborne
If you need a tooth extraction, it is like having to drink a very bitter medicine. It’s not pleasant, but it is necessary to get you out of pain and for your long term health.
At Gisborne Family Dental we have a very preventative approach to our care, however there are times where a removal of a tooth is unavoidable.
If your tooth is damaged or decayed beyond repair, we may need to remove it. When this is required, we aim to make your tooth extraction a safe, painless and controlled procedure. This also minimises the risk of complications after, ensuring a speedy healing process, and leaves you with only a positive experience.
Do I really need a tooth removal?
A tooth may be too broken or infected to be saved and can present a danger to the rest of your mouth or body. It could also be simply causing you too much pain.
At your examination phase, we may take x-rays and images to help us plan thoroughly, so that the tooth removal procedure goes as smoothly as possible, and we’re able to mitigate challenges that may arise during your tooth extraction healing.
Modern anaesthetic techniques are also very effective at ensuring you are not feeling pain during the tooth extraction procedure, and our team always ensures that you’re comfortable and looked after all throughout.
As an alternative, we also have sleep dentistry available, in order to make a complex tooth removal procedure so much more pleasant, as you will often have no memory of it.
