Dentists will always do their utmost to save a tooth. In the unfortunate event that the tooth is unsavable, the best course of action is to remove the tooth (extraction).

Your clinician will explain this in detail with you so you can be sure that the chosen treatment is the best one for you. Occasionally, if the dentist feels that it may be a difficult extraction, they can refer you to a service that specialises in these types of extractions. This service is referred to as oral surgery.

During a simple extraction, your dentist will use local anaesthetic to numb the area before removing the tooth. The dentist or nurse will give you full after care instructions and ensure all bleeding has stopped before you leave. If you are concerned about your treatment in any way, please speak to your dentist who will be able to explain further and reassure you.

Please note, if you have an extraction you may have to wait a few hours before you eat or drink after the tooth has been removed. Therefore, it is recommended that you have something light to eat before your appointment.

Once the local anaesthetic wears off you can treat any discomfort with over-the-counter painkillers. Please visit our Patient Hub to read our post-extraction care sheet.

Please be aware that we will require a deposit when you book an appointment - this will be deducted from your bill for the relevant treatment at your next visit. We understand that things sometimes come up, so your deposit will not be affected if you alter your appointment with over 24 hours' notice. We will always be as flexible as possible with you but reserve the right to retain your deposit in case of late cancellations (any cancellation with less than 24 hours’ notice) or late arrivals which result in us not being able to see you (for example, arriving c:15 minutes late for a 20-30 minute appointment). It is very difficult for us to offer care to other patients if little notice is given. Loss of opportunity to treat patients in need increases the waiting times for appointments and the cost to run the surgery. We will always try to be sensitive to personal circumstances in the event of late cancellations.
