Teeth Extraction

Tooth extraction by an experienced team at Loughborough Dental & Implant Centre

At Ascent Dental Care Loughborough our preventative approach to our patients dental needs means that we aim to help patients retain their natural teeth for as long as possible. However, there are occasions where it may be necessary to extract teeth, such as:

Tooth decay has caused irreparable damage
Teeth have become loose or mobile and are unable to be saved due to Advanced Gum Disease or Periodontitis
A tooth is broken or fractured beyond repair
An impacted wisdom tooth is causing severe pain or growing in a position that causes disease to other teeth
A severe infection or dental abscess where a root canal treatment has not been successful
As part of an implant based, full mouth rehabilitation

In some of these instances, the patients may suffer mild to severe symptoms of pain in the mouth and face and subsequent diagnosis may mean that tooth extraction is required.

At Ascent Dental Care Loughborough we provide all patients access to emergency care for urgent dental treatment. Registered patients suffering from pain will always be seen on the same day.

What happens after tooth extraction?

Our clinical team will ensure that patients are given the right advice and post-operative care information following your tooth extraction. We also offer a wide range of treatments available to help patients restore missing teeth of gaps caused by tooth extraction. These include:

Dental bridges – where one or more teeth help to suspend a ‘crown’ or false tooth into the gap
Temporary, partial or full dentures
Dental Implants to permanently replace missing teeth for life

If you have missing teeth following tooth extraction and would like to discuss your options, please call one of our friendly team to book in for your FREE consultation.

Nervous about Tooth Extraction?

For patients who are nervous or anxious about tooth extraction we have also found that dental sedation has helped many people to overcome their fear and enabled them to have their teeth extracted in relaxation and comfort.

At Ascent Dental Care Loughborough, we have found that dental sedation has helped many people to overcome their fear and enabled them to have dental treatment in relaxation and comfort.

Conscious Sedation (also known as ‘twilight sedation’, ‘IV sedation’, or ‘sleep sedation’) is a wonderful and extremely safe technique that encourages a deep state of relaxation. At Loughborough Dental, we use a sedative called ‘Midazolam’. The sedative is not designed to ‘put you to sleep’, but is used as a relaxant (although we do find that many patients naturally fall asleep during treatment!).

Patients are usually responsive during treatment (you may hear voices and respond to the gentle squeeze of your hand) but the amnesic effect of the drug will mean that patients remember very little of the procedure afterwards. In addition, patients treated under conscious sedation will often lose track of time, and a very long appointment will appear to be over in minutes.

At Ascent Dental Care Loughborough, patients treated using dental sedation have remained very relaxed throughout the entire procedure.

The sedatives that we use are extremely safe and the side effects are minimal which means that after a 24hr recovery period (no driving, cooking or operating machinery) you can return to everyday life.

We will take the time to assess your medical history prior to your treatment & sedation session to ensure that you are entirely suitable. However, we do find that most patients who are nervous, worried or anxious can be treated using conscious sedation.

Benefits of Dental Sedation:

The sedatives are safe and side effects minimal
You can have a lot of treatment in just 1 session, which reduces both cost and number of visits
Dental sedation can help to overcome fear and anxiety for good
Most patients are suitable for conscious sedation (but will be assessed on individual needs).
You can be rid of pain and discomfort very quickly
You won’t remember much about the procedure

Conscious Sedation is an extremely effective and safe technique that can be used to help overcome dental phobia for good

Do I need Dental Sedation?

You have a deep-seated fear of visiting the dentist
You are suffering from extreme pain but fear is stopping you attending
You are putting off treatment that you want or need
You would like to overcome your dental phobia for good
