Extraction

An extraction is when your natural tooth is removed. Teeth are extracted for many reasons but ultimately they are removed due to decay, poor oral hygiene or gum disease.

The treatment usually takes place during one single session. You will be given some local anaesthetic to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure.

The tooth will be removed using instruments to lever the tooth out of the jawbone. This can be quite a quick procedure. Once the tooth has been removed you must look after the site to reduce the risk of infection. We will advise you on how to do this after the appointment.

You may find that you have a slight swelling or bruising after the treatment, we would expect this to settle within a couple of days. We recommend that you refrain from smoking as this can cause an infection called dry socket which is extremely painful. If you do feel sore you can take normal pain relief to help you with the symptoms. If the pain is unmanageable and you think you have an infection please contact us or your GP as you may need anti-biotics.

What will happen to the space when I have my tooth extracted?

If the tooth removed is at the front of your mouth we would provide you with an immediate temporary denture. This can be placed immediately after the tooth has been removed.

Once the site has healed you will then be able to choose a more permanent option. You could have a permanent denture, a bridge or even a dental implant.
