Dental extraction, Dentist in Tooting, Emergency dentist Tooting

Tooth extraction is a common treatment and it is usually a quick procedure.  When a tooth cannot be repaired with a filling or a crown because of an accident or extensive decay, an extraction may be your best recourse. 

Tooth extraction is performed by a dentist or oral surgeon at Dentist in Tooting Medical Center.Tooth extraction is usually relatively straightforward, and the vast majority can be usually performed quickly while the individual is awake by using local anesthetic.

By taking an x-ray and examining your tooth, your dentist can usually determine whether or not your extraction will be simple or surgical. 

Surgical tooth extractions are required when a tooth has not erupted from the gumline, or has not fully erupted, making it harder to access. Immediately after the tooth is removed, a bite pack is used to apply pressure to the tooth socket and stop the bleeding.
