What is a teeth extraction?

A damaged or decayed tooth which can’t be repaired with a crown or filling may be removed (extracted) as a last resort. Our experts will walk you through the options during your consultation to determine the best choice. Contact our team today to book an appointment.

Why are teeth removed?

There are multiple reasons to have your tooth removed including:

  • Abscesses
  • Broken tooth
  • Crowded teeth – not enough space in your jaw
  • Gum disease
  • Impacted wisdom teeth

How does extraction work?

Preparation for tooth extraction

 Dentists will review your dental and medical history, including medical conditions, recent surgeries and medication. The dentist will then explain how the procedure works, including numbing the pain, aftercare and more.

Your tooth is usually removed under a local anaesthetic to block the pain from your gums, but, you may experience pressure. Extractions don’t usually use a general anaesthetic, however, it can be an option for children or adults with learning disabilities or multiple teeth. For general anaesthetic, you will go to the hospital for your procedure.

The tooth extraction procedure

 You will stay awake during your procedure for local anaesthetic, to inform you of what’s happening. A sedative may be possible if you’re feeling anxious to help you relax.

When you’re comfortable in the chair, the dentist injects a local anaesthetic around your tooth or teeth. When the injection is working, the procedure can start. The procedure starts with widening the tooth socket and loosening the tooth before you remove it.

You may experience some pressure, but, it shouldn’t be too painful. If you’re feeling pain, let the dentist know immediately.

Aftercare for tooth extraction

 After removal, your gums may bleed for a few minutes and the dentist provides soft padding to bite on, stopping the bleeding.

The dentist advises you to care for your teeth and gums, with recommendations for painkillers and antibacterial mouthwash. Antibiotics may also help prevent infection.

I’m a new patient at the Spring Dental Practice and I’m so glad I registered with them. Everyone I have dealt with has been professional and friendly, from the lovely lady on the reception to Katie the dental therapist and Sorin the dentist. I’ve always been nervous of dental visits but not any more. I had old fillings removed and replaced and I was so relaxed I could have fallen asleep!
