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.

Nidhi has restored my faith in dentists again. I used to be scared to death of dentists for various reasons but since coming to the practice a couple of years ago and explaining my fears, I can honestly say I don’t feel nervous anymore and I am happy to have any treatments because I know she will be very thorough, caring and will take very good care of me. The nurses and reception staff are also very professional and helpful!

Basically my toothache started on new years eve. I thought it would be gone so put up with the pain. It took me a week before i started to take pain killers. By the following monday i got in touch with the dentist practice through email and rung them up to register and by the tuesday i had enough of the pain and could not cope with it. Got an emergency appointment for that afternoon, ended on antibiotics and ended up booking for the tooth to be take out the following monday. But by the friday i ended up emailing them for an earlier appointment for the saturday which was met. I just want to say the staff that dealt with me put me at ease even though i was in tears during the procedure. They put you at ease by telling what they are doing during the procedure and after the procedure. Especailly katy and think it was courtney ( i think that was her name) and bobby being gentle as the best as he could.
