Tooth and Wisdom Tooth Extractions in Torquay

person during dental examsWhen it comes to necessary dental procedures, extractions are sometimes unavoidable. A severely decayed or cracked tooth, dental trauma, or dental crowding are some reasons our dentist might suggest removing the tooth.

At Torquay Smiles, we understand that having an extraction may cause anxiety and discomfort for many patients. That’s why we offer specialised care and options to help our clients feel more comfortable during the procedure.

Our Services

Our team is well-equipped to handle all kinds of extraction procedures, so you can trust that you’re in good hands with us. At our practice, we handle various types of extractions, including:

  • General extractions for kids
  • Broken teeth that need extraction
  • Decayed teeth that can’t be saved
  • Wisdom teeth

What to Expect

At Torquay Smiles, an topical (creams), local (injections), and inhaled (gas) anaesthetic is administered to numb the tooth, gum tissue, and bone surrounding it. This is crucial to minimise discomfort and pain during the procedure. You may feel some pressure, but should not feel any pain. After the tooth is removed, our dentist cleans the area to ensure all bone fragments and spurs are removed. He will also close the gum tissue to prevent infection and stop bleeding, which may require stitches.

Gauze is placed over the site, and patients are asked to bite down on it to create firm pressure, which will control bleeding. You may need to retain the firm pressure on the bite for about an hour. Our team may also give you further instructions to aid in your recovery.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

At Torquay Smiles, we are happy to provide our patients with the option to use inhaled Nitrous oxide during a procedure to alleviate any anxiety and discomfort.
