If a tooth can no longer be retained, it will be removed. In our practice, the resulting wound is usually sutured with dissolvable stitches. The after-pain of an extraction is usually minor and the wound will heal quickly. Pain after treatment is normal. You can use paracetamol (2 tablets 4 times a day) or another prescribed painkiller. Start with the painkiller immediately after the treatment and use it for at least the first two days. If complaints occur such as swelling of your face, difficulty swallowing or fever, we advise you to always contact us.
A partial prosthesis (plate or frame) can be used to replace one or more teeth. You can also contact us for full dentures. A plate (partial denture) is a removable plastic tooth replacement. The advantage of this is that it is relatively cheap. An important disadvantage is the possible discomfort (depending on the situation) and that the health of the gums can be adversely affected. A better, but also more expensive, solution is a frame: a removable provision of plastic and metal attached to several teeth.
Preventive care is the most important care we can provide. We think it is important that children visit the dentist as early as possible and become familiar. Many unnecessary problems can be prevented through preventive information, instructions and dental cleaning. If there is a treatment, the dentist always takes longer to treat children. It is also possible to schedule several appointments to let the child get used to, also known as adjustment sessions. Your child’s primary teeth are complete around the age of three, which is also the ideal age to familiarize your child with the dental chair. Take your child with you regularly when it is time for your own check-up again. After all, this is how you set an example for your child. It is also important that parents brush their children’s teeth at least once a day until the age of ten, because children do not yet have fine motor skills.
