At Harley Private Dental we promote a gentle approach to dentistry, and will always do everything we can to repair and save a tooth.

There are times, however, when tooth extraction is the necessary course of action.

Why might I need a tooth extraction?

We may recommend a tooth extraction if you have a tooth that is damaged or decayed beyond repair. Other reasons for removing teeth include infected wisdom teeth, overcrowding, and in some cases, baby teeth that have yet to fall out before adult teeth begin to come through.

What happens during a tooth extraction?

We understand that for some of our patients, receiving a tooth extraction could be an intimidating prospect, but this needn’t be the case. You will first be administered with a local anaesthetic before beginning the treatment, so you won’t experience any pain. We’ll then begin to gently widen the socket of the tooth to loosen and remove it.

What happens after the tooth is extracted?

We may have to administer stitches to help the socket heal properly and we’ll go through all your after care needs with you. We will advise you to avoid hot and cold drinks before the anaesthetic has completely worn off, and to keep the area clean.

It is normal to start to experience pain in the area as the effects of the anaesthesia begins to wear off. If this pain is uncomfortable, we recommend taking a painkiller such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. If the pain persists after several days, you should contact us here at the practice for a follow-up.

Depending on the reasons behind your tooth extraction, you may then want to consider replacing your missing tooth. We can help you decide which treatment might be best for you at this stage, and have a wide range of options available including implants, dentures, and implant retained bridges.
