Tooth extraction is the process of removing a tooth. When removing teeth, our first priority is your comfort and safety. Contrary to belief, removing teeth should be completely comfortable, and we take it at a pace that suits you. Dental extractions are done under a local anaesthetic, so you will be numb during your treatment.
Extractions are a last resort for teeth that will not benefit from other treatments or where all other treatment options have been exhausted.
There are numerous reasons why a tooth extraction might be necessary; these include:
Patients undergoing orthodontic treatment may also need teeth removed to make space for alignment. This is done under the instruction of an orthodontist.
The main benefits of tooth extraction are either to alleviate discomfort or to prevent discomfort. We understand that nobody wants to lose a tooth, and we will treat you with due care and empathy.
A detailed description of the process is essential so that you are aware of any potential issues, even if they are unlikely. We will also discuss your expectations before, during, and after your treatment.
When you’re ready, we’ll administer a local anaesthetic to make the extraction as comfortable as possible. A dentist will carefully evaluate the surrounding area to ensure it is numb before extracting the tooth. You may feel some pressure during the extraction, but you will not be uncomfortable.Back to General Dentistry
