Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that you will get. Most people will get their wisdom teeth in their late teens or even early twenties. You won’t always need to have them removed, but there are some clear-cut signs that point to this being the best option:
- You feel discomfort
- The area feels/looks infected or swollen
These are clear warning signs that you may need wisdom teeth removal. Do get in touch with us as soon as you can, to prevent your wisdom teeth from impacting your second molar.
Root Canal Treatment
If the nerve of your tooth is decayed or infected, root canal treatment may be necessary. The pulp, bacteria, decay and nerves are all removed – this empty space is then filled with dental materials designed to save your tooth.
Root canal treatment is preferable not only to save the tooth in question, but also to protect adjacent teeth. We have been providing our patients with successful root canals for many years. Your treatment will usually last for a lifetime. Just remember to continue practicing good oral hygiene.
Worried you may need root canal therapy? These are some of the symptoms of an infected or decayed tooth:
- Your teeth feel sensitive to hot and/or cold
- When biting, you feel a sharp pain or tenderness
- Abscesses near the affected tooth
- Facial swelling
- Change in tooth colour
Remember that your teeth are precious and worth saving – if you notice any of these symptoms, contact us immediately. In order to stop the spread of infection, it’s important to act fast.
Once the course of treatment has been decided, you will need to return for several rounds of treatment. Don’t worry – our professional staff will ensure you experience the least discomfort possible.
Making Your Visit Comfortable
Many people are a little nervous when thinking about removal of tooth pain. That’s why we’ve gone the extra mile to ensure that all our patients receive comfortable treatment that is as near to pain free as possible.
Intravenous Sedation (IV)
We use qualified anaesthetists to administer IV sedation, which is suitable for patients that are just that little bit nervous. This sedation is quite deep, meaning that you will only have partial awareness. For treatments such as providing fillings or removing wisdom teeth, IV sedation is ideal.
Otherwise known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide does a fantastic job at helping you relax during treatment. For mild to moderate levels of anxiety, this treatment is perfect.
General anaesthesia is makes pain relief dentistry a possibility, as you will be completely unconscious during the procedure. You will not feel any pain at all and is an alternative when undergoing root canal treatment, for example.
If you have any questions about our pain relief dentistry services, please do get in touch. Our professional staff members are ready to help you in any way possible and can book you in for an appointment to find the right treatment for you.
