Tooth Extractions in Howick

At A+ Dentists, Dr Pulkit Kinra always discusses the best treatment options to save your teeth. However, there may be times when a tooth needs to be extracted, especially when it does not qualify for a root canal. When that’s the case, we’ll review which choices are available, so that you can make an informed decision about your smile.

Your Comfort Is Our Priority

During your dental extraction, we will take added steps to ensure you have as pain free of an experience as possible. The first thing we want to do is keep you comfortable. Numbing gel and anaesthetic are used for most tooth extractions. However, we also offer in-house sedation options when you need added comfort.

Please be sure to let us know about any medications or supplements you are currently taking, as many prescription and over-the-counter drugs can interfere with dental procedures.

If you’re still waiting for an appointment and are in pain, contact us for assistance. Dr Pulkit can discuss what to do to alleviate your discomfort or prescribe medication if needed. We do our best to see you the same day whenever possible. Phone consultations are also available.

Recovering From Your Procedure

As with any oral surgery, it’s normal to experience some tenderness, swelling, or possible bleeding after a tooth extraction. We will provide you with special precautions to follow and medications to take to minimise post-operative discomfort.

After your mouth has fully healed, we’ll also want to take steps to replace your tooth in a timely manner. This important measure will limit complications, such as tooth shifting or changes in your bite.
