Tooth Extraction

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are often asked to remove teeth that are unable to be repaired by your dentist. Often these teeth require surgical removal meaning the teeth are often separated with the drill. 

These procedures are commonly done under intravenous sedation. After removal the tooth sockets are usually closed with dissolving stitches (sutures) and minor pain killers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen will need to be taken for a few days.
