It is very important that we plan thoroughly for the procedure, as there are risks involved with the surgery. In the lower jaw we are more interested in the impacted position relative to the underlying inferior alveolar nerve and blood vessels. These vessels control the sensation to the lower lip, teeth and part of the tongue. As a result it is important to have the treatment by someone who is experienced in these procedures.
If your tooth hasn’t came through the gum yet, then a small cut will be made in the gum to access it – any small pieces of bone covering the tooth will need to be removed also. Your tooth might also need to be cut into smaller parts so that it is easier to remove through the incision.
Your dentist or oral surgeon may need to widen your tooth socket, which they will do by rocking the tooth back and forth – this should be the only time you feel any pressure. You shouldn’t be able to feel any pain during the procedure, as the area being worked on should be numb.
What does the procedure involve?
Treatment is usually carried out under the local anaesthetic. Nevertheless we understand that some of our clients may be anxious to undergo this procedure. As a result we are able to provide sedation for this procedure.
At Integrated Dentalcare we are able to provide tooth removal assisted by the waterlase. This makes the procedure less traumatic and safer, as it takes the vibration and drilling sensation out of the procedure.
Once the treatment has been completed we place dissolving stitches for your convenience. Low level laser therapy is used to encourage faster healing and diminished after pain.
To give our clients peace of mind during the healing phase they are able to contact us after hours, if they require advice.
It is usually estimated to take around 7-10 days for the recovery period to end, but it can’t be longer or shorter. It depends entirely on the patient and how they look after themselves after the treatment.
Having a tooth out is the same as having an operation, and because of this you must look after the area to speed healing and to reduce the risk of infection. Here are some pointers:
I was looking for a holistic dentist who could offer a metal free implant, i.e. a zirconium implant. As a result of Neeraj Puri using laser technology during the treatment I found that there was almost no swelling and very little pain immediately after the dental surgery. After having had dental work over a number of years with other dentists, I can honestly say that Neeraj’s advice and technical ability is second to none. As a result, I now have a metal free zirconium implant which is functioning perfectly and has fully integrated into my jaw just like a natural tooth.
Our use of lasers puts us at the forefront of futuristic dentistry, as we offer an experience that has minimal discomfort and faster healing.
Our selection of lasers include our state of the art Waterlaser, a low level laser therapy (LLLT) laser, a soft tissue laser and a diagnostic laser.
Proving much safer than typical drills and with the chance to be more affordable than standard fees, our laser technology is helping us enter the future of dental surgery.
