Expert Care for Optimal Oral Health

Tooth Extraction

When faced with a problematic tooth that needs to be extracted, finding a trusted dental professional is crucial. At our dental clinic in Nakuru, we specialize in gentle tooth extraction procedures, offering safe and effective solutions to address various dental issues. Whether you’re dealing with severe decay, impacted wisdom teeth, or overcrowding, our experienced team is here to provide expert care and ensure your optimal oral health.

Are you a Good Candidate?

Tooth extraction may be recommended in various situations, such as severe tooth decay, impacted wisdom teeth, overcrowding, advanced gum disease, or a fractured tooth. By removing the problematic tooth, extraction solves issues like infection, pain, alignment problems, and prevents further complications.

Relief from Pain

Alleviate pain and discomfort caused by severe tooth decay, infection, or dental trauma

Better Oral Health

Eliminates the risk of ongoing dental problems associated with problematic teeth

Prevention of Infection

Prevents the spread of infection to surrounding teeth, gums maintaining good oral health

Orthodontic Alignment

In cases of overcrowding, extracting one or more teeth creates additional space

Relieve Pain With Teeth Removal

Unfortunately, teeth that are badly broken down as a result of decay or trauma and those severely affected by gum diseases are hopeless and must be removed.
Extraction of such teeth helps to relieve the symptoms of pain and infection and gives the body an opportunity to heal.
Once extraction is considered or completed, if the teeth are absolutely vital for function and aesthetics, various options exist to replace them. We are glad to discuss these options with you and select the one that best suits you.

Dental extractions are minor surgical procedures and therefore when done in a clean environment, in a healthy individual and wound care instructions followed properly by the patient, healing should be uneventful.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your questions on dental issues answered by an expert.

Is tooth extraction painful?
The tooth extraction process is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring that the area around the tooth is numb and minimizing discomfort during the procedure. After the extraction, some mild soreness or discomfort may be experienced, but it can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications as prescribed by your dentist.
How long does it take to recover from a tooth extraction?
The recovery period after a tooth extraction can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the extraction and individual healing abilities. Generally, it takes about a week or two for the extraction site to heal fully. Following post-operative instructions provided by your dentist can help ensure a smooth recovery.
Are there any complications associated with tooth extraction?
While tooth extraction is generally a safe procedure, there can be some potential risks and complications, such as infection, dry socket (a condition where the blood clot in the extraction site dislodges), or damage to neighboring teeth or structures. However, with proper technique and aftercare, the risk of complications can be minimized.
Can I eat normally after a tooth extraction?
It is recommended to stick to a soft diet for the first few days following a tooth extraction. Avoiding hard, chewy, or sticky foods can help prevent irritation or damage to the extraction site. As the healing progresses, you can gradually introduce solid foods back into your diet as advised by your dentist.
