What is it?

A tooth which is very decayed, damaged or loose due to gum disease may have to be removed.

Wisdom teeth sometimes have to be removed if they have come through at an awkward angle and are causing problems.  Children’s teeth may be extracted for orthodontic reasons to help new or remaining teeth grow straight without being crowded.

What happens?

Some teeth are easier to take out than others.  A local anaesthetic will be used to numb the tooth before it is taken out; this is the best treatment for most patients.

The benefits

  • An extraction can end pain and infection and may sometimes be the only way to keep your mouth healthy.
  • It is important to visit your dentist at regular intervals – for your teeth, your gums and your health.  Your dentist will set your check up date.
