Tooth Extraction Treatments Marbella
It can be difficult to accurately estimate the length of time an extraction will take although a clinical examination and radiograph can usually be a good indication and it may vary from a few minutes to about half an hour. This simply will depend on extraction, which will vary from patient to patient. We will try to be as fast as possible, but at Oasis Dental, we don’t take shortcuts on our work because we believe that a great smile takes time and patience.
Similarly, the difficulty of the extraction may vary and some cases may be surgical where some re-positioning of the gum and bone removal may be necessary but in all instances, we ensure that effective anaesthesia throughout makes the procedure pain free although you will likely a small amount of pressure in your mouth.
Afterwards, for difficult cases, you may be prescribed a short course of antibiotics and strong painkillers and a review appointment may be scheduled to check healing is progressing well.
Following any Marbella tooth extraction, you will need to help your mouth to heal. This can be sped up by gently rinsing your mouth with warm, but not hot, salt water and by eating only soft food for the first few days after the extraction.
