One area of speciality areas within dentistry is known as oral surgery and this applies to procedures of a surgical nature, such as the extraction of teeth or wisdom teeth.
If you have advanced tooth decay or an impacted wisdom tooth, you may require oral surgery to have them safely extracted. Depending on your particular case and the severity of your problem, you will be given anaesthetic and offered sedation if you are anxious.
It is important to always get the advice of a dental professional if you are worried about any of your teeth. Never attempt to pull out your own tooth at home as this could cause a more serious problem for you. Dentists have the right equipment and sterile environment in which to perform this type of procedure with the utmost care and your recovery can be fairly quick.
In the case of wisdom teeth extractions you may have some swelling after the
procedure and discomfort that can be eased with over the counter painkillers.
“I have a phobia of Dentists having not gone for 33 years. Dr Mansour really put my mind at rest and gave good advice. Amazingly my teeth are in good shape and only hygienist appointment required and a few small bits - No fillings. I'm not really into writing reviews and this is my first one on google but I highly recommend Shirland Dental Practice.”
“Highly recommend this practice. Dr Mansour has a wonderful chair-side manner and is always reassuring and considerate. As someone who dreaded visiting the dentist for years, I can recommend her to any of my fellow dental-phobics. She does excellent work but it's her professionalism and warmth that sets her apart.”
“Honestly the best dental practice I have ever been to. Everyone was so friendly and talked me through the procedures and my xrays. I would be happy to go back weekly if that wasn't so weird (and thankfully not necessary).”
“Open at weekends! The staff and location are fantastic. The most impressive dental service in the area.”
“An honest and caring dentist! A welcome change from my previous experience. Everything was explained clearly before work was done and the cost was outlined also. I would recommend anyone come here as they are very friendly. Thank you Hamssa!”
