The most common reasons for extraction by an oral surgeon are:
Wisdom Teeth Removal
If there’s not enough room for wisdom teeth to grow at the back of your mouth, they become what is known as ‘impacted’. This can cause pain, swelling and/or infection, in which case they should be removed.
Sometimes dentists extract teeth to prepare the mouth for orthodontics. The goal of orthodontics is to properly align the teeth, which may not be possible if your teeth are too big for your mouth. Likewise, if a tooth cannot break through the gum (erupt) because there is not room in the mouth for it, your dentist may recommend extraction.
If tooth decay or damage extends to the pulp - the centre of the tooth containing nerves and blood vessels -- bacteria in the mouth can enter the pulp, leading to infection. If infection is so severe that antibiotics do not cure it, extraction may be needed to prevent the spread of infection.
Our oral surgeon can also carry out a variety of minor soft tissue procedures including removal of polyps and cysts.
Oral surgery procedures can be carried out with intravenous sedation.
I visited Chelsea Green last week for my first hygienist appointment - Janie did a great job and I was extremely happy with the results. The practice is lovely and so is Alice. I will definitely be returning.
I can highly recommend the Chelsea Green Practice after a difficult but successful wisdom tooth extraction. Professional, skilful, kind and approachable team. The procedure was well explained with lots of detail on my request and I felt very reassured. Dr Anna Maciag and Ovaldir Cavargo made it bearable with their confident approach and human touch.
Being a very phobic patient, Annna was amazing, very warm caring and gentle nature. I was referred to her to have a Wisdom removed, she used intravenous sedation & I can't remember a thing. I was extremely anxious and panicky but she got me through it. Healing has been straightforward & hardly any pain. 10 /10 brilliant
The treatment I receive at Chelsea Green Dental is absolutely first class. I trust Dr Maciag and her team.
Lovely staff, beautiful practice and wonderful location in Chelsea. 100% recommend - I normally hate going to the dentist but Anna and her team really put my mind at ease! Best dentist in London in my opinion
