Teeth are a pretty resilient, resistant part of the body that go through so much each day.

However, in some situations, where a root canal cannot save the tooth, an extraction is the only course of action.

What can you expect from a tooth extraction?

If a tooth becomes damaged, decayed or seriously infected and we can no longer perform a root canal, we will need to extract the tooth. Crowded teeth and wisdom teeth pushing through are also reasons an orthodontic extraction may be considered.

If the tooth that needs extracting is sitting above your gum line, we can remove it with ease. However, if it’s fully or partially impacted, we may need to perform surgery to remove the bone, tissue or gum to extract the tooth smoothly. Should this be the case, we will do this under local anaesthetic, so you can relax during the procedure. You’ll be given some painkillers to help control any discomfort in the days afterwards.

How can a tooth extraction benefit you?

  • Patients can often be in pain by the time they realise they need to have a tooth removed. Once the tooth is indeed removed, this pain will subside, so you can get on with day-to-day life as normal.
  • Stops the risk of infection spreading to neighbouring teeth.
  • In the case of crowding, an orthodontic tooth extraction can improve the appearance of your smile.
