Having a tooth removed can feel daunting and cause anxiety.
It is often used as a last resort when a tooth cannot be saved due to trauma, decay, infection or other dental deterioration.
At The Walden Dental Clinic, we can reassure our patients that we will do our utmost to treat their dental issues and will only recommend wisdom tooth extraction when there is little or no other option.
Teeth may also require extraction prior to starting orthodontic treatment. This gives the other teeth more space to move and for you to achieve a newly straightened set of teeth.
Prior to a tooth extraction, we will make sure you are fully aware of why it is needed and what the process will entail.
The procedure itself can be carried out using local anaesthetic or some patients may prefer intravenous sedation. If this is the case, you will need someone to attend the practice with you and to stay with you following treatment.
