Advances in dental technology means we dentists can save more teeth than ever before. However, when decay or damage is severe or the jaw is overcrowded, removing the tooth may be the only solution.
The removal process is normally quick and straightforward. A local anaesthetic is applied to thoroughly numb the tooth and surrounding area – we also offer sedation if you feel particularly nervous or anxious. During the procedure you will feel some pressure, but it won’t be painful. Following the extraction we will advise you on aftercare to ensure your mouth heals quickly.
If you’re unhappy with a gap in your teeth we offer a range of natural-looking alternatives, including bridges and implants, to replace the missing tooth.
