At Inverleith Dentalcare, we understand that tooth extraction can be unnerving for many people. The pain and discomfort during the procedure, coupled with the risks of infection and delayed healing, can be significant sources of anxiety. These concerns often prevent people from seeking timely treatment, even in emergency dental situations.

Our primary aim is to provide our clients with a comfortable and safe dental experience that addresses these concerns and ensures they receive the necessary care when they need it.

Gentle Tooth Removal treatment is carried out at our sister dental practice, Integrated Dentalcare, located in the West End of Edinburgh. The specialised equipment required for this procedure—Waterlase Technology and a centrifuge machine to create Platelet-Rich Plasma—is available at Integrated Dentalcare, ensuring the highest quality of care for our clients.

Waterlase Technology for Pain-Free Tooth Removal

During the gentle tooth removal procedure, Waterlase technology removes the infected tissue and remnants of the periodontal ligament from the socket. 

Foreign bodies or potential infections can be a concern during tooth extraction, leading to complications and hindering your post-treatment experience. Our dentists can use laser therapy to remove such particles from the extraction site to prevent this. This advanced technique promotes a cleaner surface area and reduces the likelihood of infections, thus encouraging wound healing and optimal bone health.

Using laser therapy, we can provide a safer and more effective treatment that enhances the patient’s overall experience.

Accelerated Healing with Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a natural painkiller, derived from your own blood, which accelerates the healing process, often resulting in reduced discomfort and faster recovery times post-extraction. PRF creates a super membrane that covers the socket like a drape and protects the important blood clot that forms after gently removing the tooth. This membrane expedites tissue repair, helps the skin grow better and faster, protects the socket bone, and acts as a natural painkiller, with some of our clients reporting minimal to no discomfort post-extraction.

Our cutting-edge technology and innovative Platelet-Rich Fibrin therapy will enable you to quickly return to your daily activities, significantly reducing interruptions to your routine.

Are you curious how our PRF therapy has helped one of our valued clients? Hear first-hand from Janet, who has recently undergone PRF treatment for extracted molars:     

I recently had treatment at Integrated Dental Care with Dr Puri and his team. From start to finish Dr Puri was informative and demonstrated a personalised approach to my dental treatment. The treatment involved the use of laser surgery and platelet rich fibrin. Following the surgery my personal experience was that I experienced no discomfort or pain.All in all a positive experience and a great outcome. Thank you to Dr Puri and the team.” – Janet

Dental Implant Preparation Following a Tooth Extraction

At our Edinburgh practice, we take a proactive approach to ensure the feasibility of dental implants in the future. This is done by placing an artificial bone scaffold in the socket after the gentle tooth extraction, which helps preserve the width and height of your bone ridge. By doing so, our dentists increase the chances of maintaining the viability of the bone in case you plan to replace a tooth with a dental implant later on. This simple measure can save you time and effort in the future while also providing peace of mind that your dental health is being taken care of in the best possible manner.
