In many cases, difficult teeth need to be extracted. Choosing an experienced oral surgeon like Dr Zoud can reduce the risk of complications and preserve health.
Before removing a difficult tooth, our team will discuss your treatment options with you. While some patients undergo this procedure under local anaesthesia at one of our surgery locations, many choose to have general anaesthesia at a private hospital. This ensures maximum comfort and relaxation during treatment.
Once anaesthesia is administered, Dr Zoud makes a small incision in the gums. This allows direct access to the affected tooth and the surrounding area. In some cases, small amounts of bone tissue may be removed in order to access the problematic tooth. Using specialized dental instruments, Dr Zoud loosens the tooth in its socket. He may also divide the tooth into smaller segments for easier removal. Once the tooth is extracted, the area is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. If bone grafting is recommended, it will be performed at this time. Finally, the gums are repositioned, and the incisions are closed with sutures.
