Frequently Asked Questions
I’m anxious about my tooth extraction, are there any options for sedation?
Of course. It’s best to speak to your dentist about which sedation would be best for you, depending on your medical conditions and experiences. We offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) sedation, or another option may be right for you – find out more about our sedation options and helpful tips to cope with dental anxiety here.
What do I do if I have trouble after my extraction?
We’ll give you specific written instructions and gauze for aftercare. If you’re having issues, we have a dentist available over the phone all the time to advise you what to do – give us a call and we’ll talk you through it.
