Helping you through the tooth extraction process in Geelong

December 22, 2016

While no-one wants to have a tooth removed, sometimes extraction at our Geelong dental surgery is the most sensible option for the sake of your oral health.

At Wyatt Ryan Dental, our experienced and caring team will strive to save a client’s tooth where possible by using a range of techniques including root canal therapy. But when faced with fractured, broken and seriously decayed teeth, it might well be futile to try and restore the tooth in question.

Tooth extraction can also be necessary for people undergoing orthodontic treatment, allowing dentists to create more space within the mouth. Serious gum disease has the potential to trigger a need for tooth extractions too.

When it comes to tooth extraction Geelong people can rely on our dentists to recommend options for a suitable replacement once the process is complete.

A missing tooth can affect your ability to chew, your speech, your confidence and your appearance and it’s comforting to know that dentists can help in a range of ways. From bridges and crowns right through to dental implants, we will work hard to find the best solution in the wake of your tooth coming out.

And, once the replacement work is done, the only people to realise you’ve actually lost a tooth will be you and your dentist.

While having a tooth out is no-one’s idea of a good time, Wyatt Ryan dentists first numb the extraction site with local anaesthetic for your comfort and make the process as stress-free as possible.

We will also give you clear after-care instructions for days following the extraction to manage any pain and help prevent potential problems including bleeding and infection. Patients should take care to keep the tooth’s empty socket undisturbed, refrain from rinsing their mouth excessively and not consume hot drinks in the extraction’s immediate aftermath.

For tooth extraction Geelong people can trust the professional team at Wyatt Ryan Dental for comprehensive care and great advice. Please contact us if you would like to book an appointment with our experienced dentists.
