Dr Gutierre’s vast experience, education and amazing credentials in implant dentistry have awarded him notoriety as an international lecturer on same-day smile reconstructions with dental implants and have made him a highly sought-after dentist in London.
Despite the treatment’s horrible reputation, you may be surprised that tooth extraction is a relatively straightforward procedure.
The treatment is quick and relatively painless. Most notably, if you struggle with dental anxiety about tooth extractions, our team is here to put your mind at ease – having a tooth removed with Maida Smiles shouldn’t be scary!
We opt between surgical and standard extraction, the standard being the tooth is easily accessible. In contrast, surgical extraction involves using an incision to access an inaccessible area.
At Maida Smiles, we believe extraction is the last resort in any dental case.
However, in some more severe cases, one of our trained dentists will require the tooth removed. Therefore, for the state of your oral health, extraction is the best practice for damaged or infected teeth.
Patients with extreme tooth pain or experiencing failed root canal treatment typically undergo this procedure.
More reasons include decay or infection has reached the tooth’s pulp, injury or trauma, wisdom teeth (third molars) are removed when new ones begin to grow, or there’s not enough room for new teeth to grow. Other patients suffering from periodontal disease may require tooth extraction as teeth can become loose and, therefore, vulnerable to infection.
If we must remove your tooth, please remember that we specialise in advanced tooth replacement and repair methods. With Maida, you won’t have to worry about gaps in your smile, nor will you have to be referred elsewhere. We do it all.
Returning to normal habits after extraction may seem tempting, but what’s most important for patients is understanding the dos and don’ts that may speed up or slow down the healing process.
