Occasionally despite our best efforts teeth need to be extracted. We understand this isn't the most appealing aspect of dentistry.
While simple extractions will be conducted by your general dentist we employ the services of Dr Mahesh Kotli to carry out any complex extractions such as wisdom teeth or teeth which are very broken down. Dr Kotli has a special interest in oral surgery and sedation and with his wealth of experience can make extractions as straightforward and comfortable as possible. He is a Speciality Doctor in the Royal Berkshire Hospital and a Senior Dental Officer in the East Oxford Dental Centre.
Should you require it he is qualified to safely provide you with sedation, making the whole procedure easier for you. Sedation can help patients to feel more relaxed, less anxious and more comfortable during the procedure and leaves limited or no memory of the procedure itself. Please note that if any sedation is undertaken you will need to attend with a chaperone and will be unable to drive, cook or take care of small children for the remainder of the day.
