Tooth Extractions in Bracknell, Berkshire

Having a tooth out is the same as having an operation and you must look after the area to speed healing and reduce the risk of infection.

Our expert tooth extraction team includes our highly experienced specialist oral surgeon, Dr. Raji Ranganathan (GDC No: 100849) and associate dentist Dr. Harpreet Punny (GDC No: 228072).

At CrownWood Dental, extractions can also be done under sedation, and we are able to refer nervous patients to a sedation centre for treatment.

Wisdom Teeth

There may sometimes not be enough room in your mouth for your wisdom teeth. As they start to come through, they push against the teeth already there, or may start to come through at an angle. When this happens, you might feel some pain or discomfort, so the best thing to do is to visit your dentist.

Your dentist will probably take an x-ray of your mouth to see how, or if, your wisdom teeth are coming through. From this, we will be able to make a judgement on whether to take them out, and how complicated the procedure may be.

Tooth extraction patient testimonial

A special thanks to Dr Chi and most recently Dr Raji who extracted a tooth for me which I had put off for years. I would describe myself as a difficult, nervous and genuinely frightened patient but there is no need to be in their hands, they really do care and take pride in everything they do.

Thank you, DR Raji, I genuinely appreciate you looking after me.

Thank you to the whole team.

Single tooth extraction
Best Dental Service ever. From the referral to surgery complete - 2 days. That’s not my experience in the past. Full credit to owners and staff!

Staff were highly skilled and the extraction done with minimal discomfort. I was highly impressed!

Wisdom teeth extraction for a dentist
As a dentist myself, I had taken recommendations from a number of colleagues when I chose crownwood - it was the unanimous suggestion when it came to having my wisdom tooth out. Naturally, being aware of how difficult the extraction was likely to be, I was a little nervous about having the procedure done. However, from the first phone call I made, to follow up care, I was dealt with a caring, professional attitude throughout.

The practice manager and reception staff were fantastic at arranging appointments that worked for me. When I arrived I was greeted with friendly staff who dealt with me straight away. I was called in very promptly, and Dr Ranganathan took the time to discuss my case in great detail, and I when we were ready to start, the nursing staff and Dr Ranganathan prepared me for my procedure and carried it out promptly and without any pain at all.

At every point through this treatment, I felt cared for and looked after - I would highly recommend this practice, and would highly recommend Dr Ranganathan for any oral surgery treatment, should I need any further wisdom teeth out, I would not hesitate to return.

Post Operative Care

Here are some useful tips for patients immediately following an extraction:

  • For the first 24 hours, try to avoid eating hot food, don't smoke or drink alcohol and try not to disturb any blood clots which might have formed.
  • Don't rinse your mouth out for as long as possible - ideally for up to 24 hours. Rinse ideally with antiseptic mouthwash containing chlorohexdine for the next 7-10 days to aid the healing process and minimise the risk of re-infection following extraction.
  • Brush your teeth as normal to keep your mouth as clean as possible.
  • You may feel some small pieces of bone work their way out of the socket - don't worry, this is perfectly normal.
  • There may be some swelling and discomfort in the first two to three days. If you need to, take some over-the-counter pain killers following the advice of your doctor.
  • If you feel pain immediately after the tooth has been removed, it might be where the blood clot has broken down leaving an empty hole in the gum. This is called a 'dry socket' and will need to be looked at by your dentist. Simply go back and the dentist will pack the wound to ease your discomfort.

Protecting the Wound

Your dentist may have given you some gauze to place onto the area where the tooth has been removed. If not, a clean cloth handkerchief will do just as well (but not a paper tissue).

Here are some use tips for patients immediately following an extraction:

  • Roll it into a small firm pad large enough to fit over the gap (probably around 1cm by 3cm).
  • Sit up and gently clear away any blood clots around the gap using the gauze or clean cotton handkerchief.
  • Put a clean pad over the gap (from tongue side to cheek side) and bite down on it firmly for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Take the pad off and check whether the bleeding has stopped. If not, apply a fresh pad and contact your dentist.
