Pain-free Dental Surgery Auckland

Our gentle dentists Michael, Amanda and Adam aim to help you keep your teeth for life but sometimes expedient surgical tooth extractions make dental surgery necessary. Teeth that are broken below the gum line, impacted (crowded) or affected by advanced decay or gum disease may need to be extracted to protect your jaw and other teeth.

Signs You May Need Tooth Extraction Surgery

  • Jaw pain
  • Loose tooth or teeth
  • Inflamed gums
  • Severe toothache
  • Tooth pain (exaggerated by biting or chewing)

Early Treatment Can Save Your Teeth

Seeking treatment as soon as possible can prevent unnecessary discomfort and more expensive procedures. Untreated tooth infections will not heal and will likely worsen and spread without proper dental care. Your quick actions can prevent damage to the adjacent teeth and bones, while expanding your options for a tooth replacement. We perform pain free surgical extractions of wisdom teeth and regular teeth that are damaged or decayed.

Booking an Appointment for Dental Surgery

Our dentists will need to examine your teeth to assess what is causing your discomfort. You can book an examination for toothache or wisdom teeth removal online or contact our offices. Our dental surgery is located at 377 Mt Albert Road, Mt Roskill, Auckland. We welcome all patients.

Surgical Extraction Procedures

Impacted Teeth Extraction Surgery

More involved surgical tooth extraction procedures are necessary when teeth or molars are impacted or broken below the surface. You will likely receive both local and general anaesthetic, making you feel calm and relaxed. The general dentist will cut into your gum with a small incision. They may need to remove bone around your tooth or cut your tooth before it can be extracted. Once the tooth is removed, a blood clot will usually form in the socket. Your dentist will pack it with a gauze pad to stop the bleeding. In some cases, a few stitches may be necessary.

Simple Tooth Extraction Surgery

Removing visible teeth is relatively simple and quick. You will receive a local anaesthetic to numb the area around your tooth so you don’t feel any pain during the procedure. The dentist will then uses special dental instruments to remove it.
