Tooth Extraction

At ConfiDental Clinic, we encourage preserving as much of the healthy tooth tissue as possible and believe Tooth Extraction should be avoided where possible. However, it is sometimes necessary to have a Tooth / Teeth Extracted for the following reasons:

  • If a tooth ache is so severe and it does not have a good long term prognosis
  • If a tooth is severely broken down and un-restorable
  • If root canal treatment has failed and a re-root treatment is not an option
  • If a tooth has a negative impact on surrounding teeth, i.e. impacted wisdom tooth

Tooth Extractions are carried out under a local anaesthetic so treatment is pain free, all you should feel is painless pressure around the area. All our clinical staff at ConfiDental Clinic are here to put you at ease and make you feel as comfortable as possible. Our dental surgeons use gentle extraction techniques using peritomes and luxators to ease out the tooth and root and ensuring as much bone as possible is preserved. Bone preservation is important for many reasons. Not only does it prevent pain and swelling following treatment, it helps aesthetically by avoiding the sunken look associated with bone loss and will aid Dental Implant treatment should you wish to replace the gap with this option.

Following your extraction, postoperative instructions will be provided and discussed with you by your dental surgeons. It is normal to experience some mild swelling, tenderness or soreness in the area after an extraction which subsides within a couple of days. You can ease these symptoms by taking regular painkillers which you would usually take for a headache and use salt water rinses to prevent infection. Should these symptoms persist, worsen or swelling develops, you should contact the practice immediately and we will arrange follow up care.

This was my first visit as a new patient at Confidental St Helier & felt quite nervous. I didn’t need to worry though, from booking in at reception & meeting my new dentist was a really good experience. I would highly recommend them.

Kind, gentle and friendly receptionists, dentist and hygienist. Was dreading visiting the dentist as I had not been for quite a while. Walked out of my check-up with a spring in my step and amuch brighter, cleaner smile on my face. So grateful I managed to get in.

I am so happy that I had my dental treatment here at St Helier. Dr Zena Al-ansari made it possible for me to smile again after more than 30 years. I had Invisalign fitted as well as other procedures during the course of a year and the care and attention I received was outstanding. Zena is such a lovely friendly dentist who puts you at ease and informs you of your procedure every step of the way. Thank you so much for giving me the confidence to smile again😃
