Necessary treatment for enhanced dental health

We do all we can to protect and save your natural teeth, but sometimes it is necessary to perform extractions or surgical treatments to address a dental problem and provide relief from pain. Dentists can carry out most oral surgery procedures in the practice, including extracting teeth and placing implants.

Why do I need oral surgery?

Oral surgery is the term for any medical procedure performed on the mouth, involving the teeth, gums or jaw. You may need oral surgery for a number of reasons, including to place implants and have very large embedded or broken teeth removed. Oral surgery can also be used to carry out a sinus lift or bone graft ahead of dental implant treatment.

At Enhance Dental, all our oral surgery procedures are carried out using local anaesthetic to minimise your discomfort. We understand that some patients may be worried or nervous about the prospect of having surgery, so we do all we can to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere to help you feel at ease.

Frequently asked questions:

  • You will likely feel some discomfort during treatment, but we use local anaesthetic to manage your pain and ensure you are feeling ready and relaxed before beginning. When the affected area is numb due to the anaesthetic, we work quickly, carefully and accurately to help keep you at ease.

  • Don’t worry, your dentist will advise you if you need an extraction or oral surgery! We may spot something at your regular dental check up that needs attention, or take our lead from any concerns you may mention. Please talk to us if you are worried about anything.

  • We use local anaesthetic during tooth extractions so you shouldn’t feel any pain. You will likely feel some pressure which can be uncomfortable but is short lived. Often, the relief you feel when your broken or decayed tooth is removed is worth the discomfort during the extraction.

  • We will give you detailed aftercare advice and instructions tailored to your case, including how to look after the surgery site and the types of food and drink to choose. You may experience some soreness, pain or swelling, which can be effectively managed with painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen.

  • You will need at least a couple of days to rest and recover after oral surgery, depending on the length and complexity of your procedure. You should not return to work for the rest of the day of your surgery, and avoid strenuous activities.
