Removing a tooth from a patient’s mouth is called an extraction. If a tooth becomes damaged or decayed beyond repair then removing it is often the best way of protecting the health of the mouth and remaining teeth.

If one or several of your teeth do not look right or you are experiencing pain in a tooth then book a free consultation and we will assess the best possible course of treatment for you. Despite the advances in modern dental technology it is always better to keep as many of your natural teeth as possible. Extractions will always be used as a last resort.

Main reasons for extraction:

  • Severe tooth infection, decay or trauma where the tooth is past the point of being saved.
  • With some traditional braces a tooth may need to be removed to avoid overcrowding issues with your new straight teeth.
  • Complicated fracture leaving tooth unrestorable.
  • Teeth that cannot be saved through root canal (endodontic) treatments.
  • Dental abscesses; a collection of pus around the gums or teeth
  • Advanced gum disease.
  • Supernumerary teeth; are additional teeth which block other teeth from developing by growing in the wrong place.

We understand that an extraction can be a nervous time for any patient. They are carried out under a local anaesthetic which numbs the sight of the extraction and eliminates any pain. Due to the nature of the treatment you may feel some movement and pressure around the tooth which can be uncomfortable. Our dentists always provide the best possible environment for our patients making sure they are as relaxed as possible.

For patients of a very nervous disposition extraction can seem overwhelming. We offer IV sedation on all of our treatments; you will be in a hazy and calm state and are likely not to remember any of the procedure. As you do not go completely under we will still be able to communicate with you throughout the treatment meaning you stay relaxed and safe.

Specialist Oral Surgery

Mr James Anang, our resident Specialist Oral Surgeon, provides the following treatments:

  • Complex surgical extractions
  • Wisdom tooth extractions
  • Apicectomies
  • Sedation

Wisdom teeth (third molars) are the final teeth to develop in the mouth usually in late teens or early twenties. Not all people have wisdom teeth and not all peple have problems with their wisdom teeth.

Often, wisdom teeth become trapped and do not fully erupt because they commonly impact onto the second molars and either remain buried under the gum or partially erupt through the gum. This can cause difficulty with cleaning and can often cause infections.

There are specific guidelines set ou tby NICE and when beneficial your dentist will advise removal of the problematic wisdom tooth/teeth.

General Aftercare Advice

  • Ice packs can be used for periods on 30mins to reduce immediate post operative swelling
  • Biting on gauze/kitchen towel with pressure to stop any bleeding
  • Soft foods and avoidance of very hot foods/liquids
  • Avoid crunchy/sharp foods
  • Good oral hygiene
  • Warm salt water rinsing 3-5 times daily
  • Sto smoking for at least 3 days post extraction
  • Suitable pain relief if necessary

πŸ”₯πŸ”₯REPOST from @ohabioh πŸ”₯πŸ”₯ So as some of you guys have seen I have been going through my @invisalign_uk journey since March. I have always wanted to straighten my teeth, especially one that was super wonky at the front. It made me not want to smile & I would always put my hand over my mouth if I laughed etc. I want to do a thorough video talking about everything but for now this post will do! I used @dentalkind in Billericay who luckily are just around the corner from where I work!! 😁 Sunil has done such a great job on my final touches too, filling in my last few gaps, straightening up and tweaking them to perfection. I still need to have my whitening done which I’m double excited for. If you guys are thinking about having Invisalign through dentalkind, feel free to pop me over a message & I can give you information on how to receive your free consultation (there is absolutely no commitment or pressure at this point) and if you decide to go further, I can also offer you money off your treatment! So my DM’s are open to anyone who wants anymore info πŸ–€ I need to also find a before pic but it’s proving difficult as I never used to smile showing off my β€˜bad’ tooth side haha 🀨

Simple yet satisfying 😁. Nothing uber fancy, just a decayed amalgam filling being replaced with a tooth coloured composite filling.✌🏽

Dentist, please give me a 🦷. This lady had a visible space, did not like smiling and could not afford dental implants. We work with our patients to find suitable solutions to work within their budget.
Here we have a standard porcelain-metal adhesive bridge and this was all completed in 2 weeks. This process involved no drilling and should last many years to come. More aesthetic metal free options also exist (at a higher fee). A positive outcome and another smile improved in time for the weekend! 😁

Composite Smile Makeover .
This young lady wanted to improve her smile and didn’t want to undergo orthodontic treatment. After discussion of her options we agreed to place eight composite veneers. .
Several photos and a 3D scan were used in a digital smile design process. We work with our labs to create the ideal proportions and a result that was in harmony with her face. Thanks to @densign_lab for the amazing digital wax ups. .
The treatment was completed over 3 visits... 1. Placement 2. Refinement 3. Review.
.
Happy patient 😁 Happy dentist πŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ

Here we replaced 2 missing teeth using an all ceramic bridge for a natural βœ… comfortable βœ… strong βœ… and aesthetic βœ… outcome.
The patient did not want to have dental implant treatment.
Process: (1) Designing the bridge via a digital wax up process (2) Careful preparation of the teeth to support the bridge (3) Test drive the bridge design with a provisional bridge (4) Final zirconia bridge delivered using a copy of the provisional (NO adjustments were required)
Thanks to @densign_lab for the lovey result. Always consistent work from these guys! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
