"Tooth extraction"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

After weeks and weeks of agonizing tooth ache and several trips to my dentist for ex-rays i was referred to hull royal to get my tooth out. I am 24 years old and have had a few teeth removed by my dentist and even my local emergency dentist so knew what to expect, a long wait and a lot of discomfort. I would just like to praise the consultant and the Maxillofacial team as this was not the case, 45 minutes and I was out I could not believe it. The consultant and the team really put me at ease and the skillful handy work of the consultant was amazing, what most dentists would have struggled with this consultant was in and out with his array of tools and made light work of the situation. I cannot thank the consultant enough as my agonizing pain is now gone. Why can't all tooth extractions be as good.
