Extractions


Need a Tooth Extraction? Come in to Abbotsford Dental Clinic and Take the First Step in Perfecting Your Smile

Abbotsford Clinic

Tooth extractions can cover a lot of situations.

From treating severe gum disease (otherwise known as periodontal disease), to fixing deep-rooted tooth decay, to pulling out broken or crowded teeth, the need for dental extractions services is quite common among the Abbotsford, Collingwood and Fitzroy areas.

And, in fact, one of the most common reasons for a tooth extraction procedure is due to problems with wisdom teeth.

Overall, the need for relieving the mouth of too many teeth in too small of a space is a well-known issue, one that the dentists at Abbotsford Dental Clinic are quite experienced in treating.

Our professional staff can perform tooth extractions with ease, leaving the patient feeling comfortable before, during and after the procedure. After all, they know they’re in the right hands and will receive the care their smile needs.

Are There Alternatives to the Tooth Extraction Procedure?

If the sound of dental extractions services sounds appalling, there are few alternatives — yet, none of them are long-lasting for complete treatment and will probably lead to extraction sooner or later.

Simply using over-the-counter painkillers or doctor-prescribed antibiotics can sometimes ease the pain and swelling, but this is only a short-term solution.

If you only want to correct the crooked teeth you have as opposed to removing them, an orthodontist may be able to offer other treatments for straightening your existing teeth.

However, finding ways to manage an overabundance of teeth may only be a waste of money and time, as underlying problems will inevitably continue.

How Tooth Extractions Work

The tooth extraction procedure is easy for the patient to prepare for, with the dentist simply asking about dental/medical history and deducing any current medical conditions.

If the patient finds themselves nervous or antsy about treatment, the dentist may supply a sedative for relaxation without fully putting the patient to sleep.

Normally, the dentist in charge will inject the site of the extraction with local anaesthetic to prevent pain during and after the treatment. Some pressure in the mouth and noise from the equipment may be the only side effects of the procedure, but it’s otherwise a fairly common process.

The dentist will widen the tooth’s socket (the base area of the tooth) with special tools, moving the tooth gently from side to side until it’s loose for full extraction.

What to Do in Case of Complications

The tooth extraction healing process should be fairly mild.

However, immediately contact a dentist in cases involving prolonged bleeding, above-average swelling, intense pain or indication of a fever. Such symptoms can be signs of infection or other problems that need to be addressed.

A common result of tooth extractions is getting what is called “dry socket,” where there’s no blood clotting within the extraction site, so healing takes a longer time to complete.

It can be quite painful, so returning to the dentist for greater care is crucial. They will rinse the area, redress it, and could potentially give you antibiotics to prevent infection.

For dental extractions services, contact the Abbotsford Dental Clinic as soon as possible.

Both Dr. Frank & Simone were a pleasure - attentive, gentle, informative and up front.
Modern clinic and equipment. Dr Frank was able to identify & fix the cause of my pain that other Dentists seemed to miss.
All in all a fantastic experience - Highly recommend !

Great service - first time I'd ever had my teeth professionally cleaned and was a bit apprehensive. But, it was quick, painless and my teeth felt amazing afterwards.
Dr Nikakhtar also gave me practical advice for how to keep my teeth healthy and also walked through the x-rays with me so I knew what was going on.
All of the practice staff are also really friendly! Highly recommended

I was extremely impressed with my recent experience at Abbotsford Dental Clinic. The staff were great with my children and I really liked the way
Dr Nikakhtar kept me informed of whatever he was seeing and thinking during their appointments. I really appreciate Dr Nikakhtar's holistic approach.
I was impressed with the dental work alone but on top of that Dr Nikakhtar picked up on issues that impact my health in general now,
and would have in the future if I had remained unaware. There was definitely a sense that our overall wellbeing was of importance.
This is all on top of the clinic being very modern and clean, and a very cleverly placed TV to distract you during the examination! I highly recommend this clinic.

As a bonus you get to watch TV the whole time. Highly recommend.
