Why Get a Tooth Extracted?

If you have a specific tooth that’s interfering with your smile’s overall health or causing ongoing pain, removing it could be the best solution. Dental extractions are ideal in instances where a tooth is no longer restorable or is so infected that it is damaging to your adjacent teeth. We may recommend having your tooth removed for situations related to the following:

Planning Your Oral Surgery

Having a tooth removed can vary from a straightforward, short procedure to a more involved oral surgery. Your unique situation will depend on the tooth’s location and integrity.

In most situations, we’ll recommend nitrous oxide sedation to help you feel more relaxed throughout the procedure. Local anaesthetic will also be used to numb the area immediately around your tooth so that you’ll be comfortable. We will only begin your extraction once you agree that you are ready to proceed.

Plan to take the rest of the day off and eat soft foods until the extraction site has fully healed. We may recommend anti-inflammatory medication to reduce swelling, along with using a cold compress on and off for the first 24 hours.

Aftercare Following Your Dental Extraction

Although you may not realise it, having a tooth removed can have a lasting impact on your overall smile (and not just how the space looks). Unless your missing tooth is replaced in a timely manner, the neighbouring teeth are likely to drift and tilt out of place.

Leading up to your extraction, we’ll discuss different types of tooth replacement options that are appropriate. Some of the most popular choices include implants and fixed bridges. We’ll go over all possible options with you so that you can select the one that you feel is best for you.

FAQ

How long does it take to have a tooth extracted?

The length of time of your procedure will depend on which tooth and how the roots are situated. We’ll take diagnostic X-rays to determine the best way to go about your extraction. Then, we can tell you how long the procedure will take. If you’re having more than one tooth extracted, the procedure will require more time.

Are there any alternatives to having a tooth extracted?

In some cases, a damaged tooth may be saved with a root canal treatment. If this is the case for you, we’ll be sure to let you know so that you can avoid having it extracted.

Will I feel pain during the extraction?

We use anaesthetic and have nitrous oxide so that you’re comfortable and experience minimal discomfort. Your recovery will be optimised by following our aftercare instructions.
