Teeth which have severe damage or decay can cause major problems to your tooth functioning, as well as discomfort. Overcrowded teeth may also have to be removed if they are affecting the adjacent teeth, as well as teeth which have recurrent abscesses, which form in the gum underneath the tooth.
Most tooth removals are performed under local anaesthetic by your Dentist at the Dental practice, and sedatives can also be administered to patients who are nervous or anxious.
Wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth to emerge, most commonly during your late adolescence or early twenties. If they do not have enough space to fit behind your other adult teeth, or they erupt at an incorrect angle, this means they are impacted. If impacted wisdom teeth begin to cause severe pain, or if you experience infections in your wisdom teeth, your Dentist may recommend having them removed.
The removal of wisdom teeth is one of the most common surgical procedures undertaken in the UK, and at Bond Dental we are committed to making your experience as comfortable as possible.
