Ensuring a healthy and living jaw bone and faster, less painful healing.
For every extraction we perform, we thoroughly curette the extraction socket to remove any diseased tissue and the periodontal ligament from the bone. We also irrigate with saline solution, hydrogen peroxide, and Traumeel ampule solution (a very effective combination of mineral and biological extracts). This reduces any microorganisms and promotes faster, less painful healing.
If you’ve had a tooth removed in the past and the dentist hasn’t curetted, there’s a possibility you’ll have an area of diseased bone, called a cavitation. We can only offer cavitation surgery for certain areas of the jaw bone and always require a Cone Beam 3-D CT. If the areas are located in a more difficult area, such as in the wisdom tooth area, we’ll arrange a referral to an Oral Surgeon.
Less stressful extractions
If we deem the forces are becoming too great on the jaw bone when extracting your tooth, we will recommend that the tooth be sectioned – cut into two or three pieces (painless with anaesthetic), which allows each individual root to be removed separately, one at a time, and without trauma. This tends to be much less stressful for the patient as the separate roots come out easily.
