Teeth that have been affected by dental caries (decay) and are beyond repair may need to be extracted surgically. This is due to the fact that the crown (top part) of the tooth is heavily broken down and the roots of the tooth are still buried in the jaw bone.
Removing teeth can be done under a local anaesthetic procedure. Although you will be awake during the process, the local anaesthetic helps to block any pain from your gums and surrounding area ensuring you feel no pain throughout.
If the tooth is a little more complicated, general anaesthetic as a day case procedure may be required, meaning those patients will be asleep throughout the process but still be able to go home later that day.
After tooth surgery, the area can be very sore and sensitive. Here are some after-care tips to help ensure your wounds heals in the safest and most hygienic way, helping to reduce any post treatment pain:
