Back to the things we love doing…
I have written many blogs recently about Covid-19. Many of us have adapted to a new way of life as…
At Infinity Dental Clinic we will do all we can to save your natural teeth. Occasionally there may be unavoidable reasons why this is not possible and an extractions may be required. However, you can be assured we will do all we can to make the process as comfortable as possible.
We are proud to be using the revolutionary, state-of-the-art digital intra-oral scanners and CBCT imaging to ensure we are leading the way in Digital Dentistry. We are one of only a few Dental Practices in the UK to provide all of these facilities in-house. This means we can ensure our standards are maintained at the highest level of dental care provision.
Within Dentistry, there have always been certain surgical procedures, such as the extraction of impacted wisdom teeth, that carry a small risk of post operative complications. Patients will have been made aware of these risks should they present. However, with more recent advances in technology and the use of 3-dimensional CBCT scanning, we can minimise these risks even further. In fact, some of these risks can be totally eliminated by utilising this technology in the planning and treatment stages. It is a great tribute to modern dentistry that we are striving for safety and success rates that are edging ever closer to the 100% mark. This is largely due to the utilisation of digital technology within dentistry.
We are proud to be using these latest protocols at our clinic.

If a tooth is heavily decayed and beyond restoration the tooth may require extraction. Other reasons include acute or chronic infections, fractures, gum disease, orthodontic reasons or impacted wisdom teeth.
Extracting teeth will always be a last resort, but do not worry, we will discuss the options for replacing your missing teeth.
Initially, an x-ray or CBCT scan of the tooth will be taken. Your Dentist will ensure the tooth area is fully numb in order to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. You can expect to feel some pressure – but not pain! After the extraction, the Dentist will advise you of the post-operative instructions and check all is well before you leave.
In order to promote healing, the following instructions should be followed carefully:
You can discuss with your Dentist the options for replacing a missing tooth. There are a variety of treatment options available depending on your circumstances. These range from fixed dental implants to removable dentures
The most common cause of wisdom tooth pain is pericoronitis. Pericoronitis is the inflammation of the gum around a partially erupted wisdom tooth. Approximately 30% of wisdom teeth do not fully erupt. This is usually not a problem. However, in some cases it can cause painful pericoronitis.
Pericoronitis can usually be treated by professional irrigation and antibiotic therapy, but in severe cases an extraction may be required. Wisdom teeth usually require a ‘surgical’ extraction. At Infinity Dental Clinic, Dr Mohsin Patel and Dr Vinay Mistry are experienced in carrying out these oral surgery procedures.
Here at Infinity Dental Clinic we work hard to find a solution that meets all our patients expectations on desired outcome both clinically and financially. We will supply you with all relevant treatment options and the associated prices involved, allowing you to make the right decision for you regarding your dental care.

I contacted them when a cracked wisdom tooth had me climbing the walls with pain. They saw me within 24 hours, produced a treatment plan that worked for me and all the work I’ve had done has been excellent. I highly recommend them. – Maddy
