If you have been advised that a tooth needs to be removed, then please do not worry - as our friendly, caring and highly experienced team will ensure any discomfort is kept to an absolute minimum and that you are supported through every step of this procedure.
Our team will take the time at the beginning of your appointment to explain what the procedure will involve - so that you are comfortable with the process before starting any treatment. The area around your tooth will be completely numbed and the tooth will then be removed as gently and smoothly as possible.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to form and can sometimes cause problems as they come through. This could be due to lack of space or other teeth impacting their development. For some people this can cause no problems but others may suffer from gum disease, an increased risk of tooth decay and problems later in life.
Removal of wisdom teeth is one of the most common operations carried out in the UK. If you are having problems with your wisdom teeth you can contact us to inspect and investigate them for you.
The frenum is a thin band of muscle above the upper front two teeth which attaches the upper lip to the gum. A prominent frenum can cause a large gap to appear between the upper two front teeth. This can cause problems such as pain, poor oral hygiene and may be aesthetically unpleasing to some people.
At St Johns Road Dental Practice we can discuss different options for closing this gap which include braces and undertaking a frenectomy.
