Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. If a tooth has been broken (in an accident, for example) or damaged by decay, your dentist will fix it with a fillingcrown or other treatment.

It is important to bear in mind that your dentist will always do their utmost to save the tooth. Sometimes, though, there’s too much damage for the tooth to be repaired. In this case, the tooth needs to be extracted.

Other possible reasons for tooth extraction include overcrowding of the teeth and impacted wisdom teeth. Our clinicians will discuss all options in detail with you so you can be sure that the chosen treatment is the best one for you.

During a simple extraction, your dentist will use local anaesthetic to numb the area before removing the tooth. In more complex extractions it is sometimes necessary to break the tooth in order to remove it or to make a small incision in the gumline. 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.

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.
