EXTRACTION SURGERY

Dentists once removed teeth quite liberally. Nowadays, extractions are only performed if necessary. At Emerald Hills Dental Centre, we offer sinus repair and bone grafting treatments, as well as wisdom teeth surgery.

Bone grafting

Bone grafting is used to preserve or build up bone levels to replace teeth using implants.

Wisdom teeth

Removing wisdom teeth helps prevent future dental problems. Not everyone gets wisdom teeth, and not everyone needs to have them removed, but wisdom teeth cause problems when they grow at odd angles, affecting your other teeth. Wisdom teeth are also more difficult to clean since they are so far back, so removing them lets you avoid infection. At Emerald Hills Dental Centre, we can provide oral surgery for difficult and impacted wisdom teeth.

TOOTH EXTRACTION PROCESS

The dentist can remove the teeth either surgically or non-surgically. Here is a brief explanation of both of these procedures.

Nonsurgical or simple extractions are straightforward procedures. They are usually done under local anesthesia. Applying anesthesia will numb the area which allows the dentist to lift the tooth using an elevator and remove it from the mouth with forceps. Our staff is experienced enough to do this process slowly as to not break the tooth during the extraction process.

Surgical extractions are complex as it entails additional steps. First, the dentist will administer nitrous oxide or an oral anesthetic to numb the area. Afterwards, the surgeon will then make an incision to facilitate tooth removal. This type of procedure is done for those whose teeth have not yet erupted.

REASONS FOR TOOTH EXTRACTION

 

At Emerald Hill Dental Care Centre, we try hard to restore the condition of your existing teeth. But under some conditions, tooth extraction might be required. Common reasons for tooth extraction are briefly discussed below:  

  • Infection: Sometimes due to tooth decay, the bacteria in the mouth can enter the pulp leading to infection. Even the partial eruption of a wisdom tooth increases the chance of infection-causing bacteria. Oftentimes, root canal therapy is enough to improve your condition but if the infection is severe, tooth extraction surgery is needed to prevent it from spreading to other areas.  
     
  • Wisdom tooth decay: Your wisdom tooth and its adjacent teeth are hard to clean, which is why it's prone to decay.
     
  • Crowding: In many cases, the appearance of a wisdom tooth causes crowding, affecting the placement of your other teeth. In such a case, tooth extraction surgery has to be performed to properly align all of your teeth.
     
  • Injuries: During an accident, anyone can suffer injuries and the same can happen to your mouth which can damage one or some of your teeth beyond repair. Our staff will carefully look at the situation and will recommend crowns, veneers, or bridges accordingly. If the dental issue is beyond repairs, tooth extraction may be required.

AFTER CARE TIPS

 

Following a tooth extraction surgery, your dentist will send you home to recover however, to minimize discomfort, and reduce the spread of further infection, follow these tips:

  • Take painkillers as prescribed by the dentists.

  • After the procedure, apply an ice bag to the affected area to reduce swelling.

  • Limit your movement for at least 24 hours after the extraction.

  • You should avoid rinsing or spitting for the next 24 hours.

  • Eat soft foods such as pudding or soup.

  • You should continue to brush, and floss your teeth but be sure to avoid the extraction site.

SEDATION DENTISTRY

If you are anxious about visiting a dentist, sedation dentistry in Sherwood Park is for you. We understand your anxiety and fear of being in close proximity to dental tools. Therefore, we offer you sedation dentistry that will help you calm down and focus on your oral health.

We offer sedation dentistry in two forms:

Conscious Oral Sedation

Nitrous (Laughing Gas)

Your dentist will recommend a form based on your age, health, as well as the type of procedure being performed. We are experienced in administering sedatives. We make sure that you are in a comfortable state before we start the procedure. Sedation helps relieve anxiety and allows patients to feel more comfortable and calm in the dentist’s chair. The practice can be used for all dental treatments, from routine cleanings to root canals and tooth extractions. 


We screen our patients for possible drug interactions and medical conditions before administering any sedative. While under sedation, we monitor oxygen levels, blood pressure, and heart rate. 

Sedation dentistry helps you in the following ways:

Relieves anxiety

Makes visits go by quickly

Helps with relaxation

Ensures a stress-free appointment

Leaves you with little recollection of the treatment

RESTORATIVE TREATMENTS

If you have damaged teeth or have lost teeth altogether, prosthetic teeth are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

DENTURES

Dentures are prosthetic replacement teeth for those who have lost multiple or all of their teeth. Partial or removable dentures are suitable for those who can’t support a bridge with their existing teeth. The dentures are held in place by a clasp that fits over natural teeth. Complete dentures are used to replace the total loss of teeth and are held in your mouth through suction.

IMPLANTS

Implants are an option for those who have lost one or multiple teeth. Implants are artificial roots made of titanium that are inserted directly into your jawbone. An abutment is attached to the implant, and a prosthetic tooth is attached to the abutment. Implanted teeth look and act much like natural teeth, so you brush and floss them the same way. If you require full dentures, you can also opt for non-removable implant dentures.

Benefits of implants include:

Long-lasting

Preserve the bone

Prevent further deterioration of facial structures

DENTAL TRAUMA

If you have accidentally knocked out a tooth, visit a dentist for an emergency appointment as soon as you can.

Meanwhile, take note of the following tips:

Don’t touch the tooth’s root; hold it by the white part

Clean it using saliva or cold water, but only for about 10 seconds

Try to put the tooth back into its gum socket and hold it there by biting down on a cloth

If you can’t put it back into the gum socket, store the tooth in saliva or milk
