Teeth are incredibly strong but, in some instances, they can become damaged or infected to a point where extraction is the best course of action to take.

Routine dentist appointments are essential in flagging up problems early to avoid the need for extraction. However, if you’ve noticed a change with your teeth between appointments, or you’re struggling with unpleasant symptoms, you should come in and see us as soon as you can.

Tooth extraction: the process

Once you’re comfortable and relaxed, a local anaesthetic will be administered to the area around the given tooth or teeth. Once this has taken effect, we will gently broaden the socket the tooth is sitting in, allowing us to loosen, and remove it. We may place a stitch in the socket to help it heal.


I’m a nervous patient – do you offer sedation?

We’re pleased to be offering sedation to patients, and this is particularly beneficial for those who struggle with nerves. Please let us know if you would like to opt for sedation prior to an extraction, or if you suffer with nerves and need to talk through your worries with us beforehand.

Will treatment hurt?

As local anaesthetic is administered, you won’t feel anything at the site of the tooth being removed, or around it. It’s common to experience a bit of mild discomfort once the anaesthetic has worn off, but this can be controlled with over-the-counter (OTC) painkillers and shouldn’t last longer than a couple of days. If you’re worried about any lingering symptoms, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

What are my options for replacing the extracted tooth?

We offer multiple options for replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants are unrivalled in their ability to emulate a tooth.

Some of the benefits of replacing a missing tooth with an implant include:

  • They look, behave and feel like real teeth (you won’t be able to tell the difference!)
  • They protect your jawbone from the risk of shrinking away as a consequence of having no support where your tooth is missing.
  • They provide amazing stability for eating and speaking, because they’re replacement tooth roots.

After your tooth extraction, we can talk you through many advantages of getting a dental implant.
