Is It Painful?
At Curaeos, we offer pain-free treatments. Previously, dental treatments have been connected with pain which is one of the reasons why some people suffer from dental phobia. But with modern equipment, it’s possible to provide pain-free treatment today.
We use an effective local anaesthetic with all surgical procedures, and we will do our very best to ensure you feel the least amount of pain and discomfort possible. Furthermore, we offer full anaesthesia at several of our Curaeos clinics for patients suffering from severe dental phobia.
It’s completely normal to be nervous before a surgical procedure. If you want some sedatives beforehand, please let us know early on.
Removal of a Tooth
One of the most common surgical procedures for dentists is the surgical removal of teeth. This could be a wisdom tooth, for example. Wisdom teeth are usually removed if their placement is inconvenient. Perhaps there isn’t enough space for the tooth which makes it interfere with the neighbouring teeth. In some cases, this will cause infections and pain and a heightened risk of cavities. In these cases, we recommend removing the wisdom tooth.
Before we begin removing the tooth, we will give you a local anaesthetic for a pain-free treatment. When the anaesthetic is in effect, we will carefully make a cut and push the gums aside to reach the jawbone. After that, we will remove the wisdom tooth. In some cases, it may be necessary to remove some of the bone around the tooth to loosen it. It may also be necessary to split the tooth if its placement is inappropriate, or its roots go in different directions. When the wisdom tooth is removed, we will close the cut with a couple of stiches. The operation will, of course, take place in a sterile setting.
