Extractions

Modern dentistry focuses firmly on prevention, but we may need to remove a tooth if it is damaged beyond repair, or if we need to create more space in your mouth to carry out further treatment.

Tooth extraction may be necessary to remove a tooth loosened by gum disease, or one that has extensive decay or suffered damage. It may also be required for an impacted wisdom tooth or if you need more room for orthodontic treatment. Extracting teeth can help to eliminate pain and prevent infection.

What does treatment involve?

  • We take an x-ray and assess your teeth to ascertain the best method of removal, which will either be a simple extraction or a surgical extraction.
  • A simple extraction is performed on a tooth that is visible in the mouth. It involves loosening the tooth and removing it with dental forceps under local anaesthetic
  • A surgical extraction involves making a small incision in the gum to remove a tooth that may have broken off or is concealed under the gum.

Looking after your mouth after the extraction

You should promote healing after an extraction by eating softer foods and chewing on the opposite side of your mouth. You should also avoid hot foods, smoking and alcohol. The site of extraction should be kept clean by rinsing with warm, salty water.
