Dental Extractions

If the nerve in your tooth has died or is dying and an infection is beginning to form, you have two options left:

  • Root canal treatment
  • Tooth extracted

Unfortunately, the pain and cost of the root canal treatment take preference over keeping the teeth we have.

This procedure is completed using a local anaesthetic, which we use as well as a numbing gel on the gum beforehand. The importance of the aftercare is critical to a properly healed socket, as a lot of things can contribute to a dry socket infection. You will be advised by the Dentist about all things that can lead to infection, post extraction.
