Tooth Extraction

Benefits

  • Soothe your mouth.

    An infected tooth causes pain and discomfort, thus undergoing an extraction will alleviate the ache and help you enjoy eating again.

  • Protect the rest of the teeth.

    Prevention is better than cure! Extracting at the first sign of severe decay and infection will avoid putting the rest of your mouth at risk.

  • Create a clean slate.

    Temporary restorations starting to deteriorate? Removing the tooth gives way for an easier, long lasting treatment.

  • Makes for better alignment.

    Sometimes, when our mouth cannot accommodate more space for more teeth, crowding happens. We recommend having that extra tooth extracted for a comfortable smile.

  • Saves you from future expenses.

    Take extraction as a prevention—to protect and save your mouth from future complications.

Root Canal Treatment

Retain the biting and chewing. This treatment rescues your tooth and keeps (and even improves) its function.

Relieving remedy. A quick fix for toothaches, the procedure will serve as a fast and easy relief.

Proactive protection. Undergoing a root canal treatment helps prevent infection from happening to surrounding teeth.

Tooth Extraction

Stops the problem permanently. Temporary fixes are temporary. With extraction, you can avoid further infections and overcrowding and make way for better oral health.

Practically painless. With the help of anaesthetics and painkillers, you’ll experience only a minimal amount of pain from pre-extraction to healing stage.

Thrifty treatment. Undergo the procedure once and rest easy knowing that the rest of your healthy teeth (and pocket) will be fine.

FAQs

  • How do I know if my tooth needs to be extracted?

    Experiencing constant pain is one indicator of a tooth qualified for extraction. The treatment is granted through case-to-case basis, as the procedure is not reversible.

  • Will it hurt?

    You will be provided local or general anaesthetics or sedatives before undergoing the extraction.

  • How will my tooth be extracted?

    Either through a simple extraction, if your tooth is already exposed, or surgical extraction, which requires a dental surgeon to cut through your to pull out tooth that has not fully erupted.

  • Can the healing time be sped up?

    As long as the dentist’s instructions are followed, you’ll be on your way to successful healing. This typically includes going on a soft food or liquid diet and refraining from strenuous activities.

  • Why do I need an extraction if I’m not experiencing pain?

    Decayed or infected tooth can affect surrounding teeth and cause health problems. The same also goes for when the tooth is causing overcrowding, which may potentially disturb the alignment of your teeth, causing further problems.
