Tooth extraction is a dental procedure where a tooth is carefully removed from its socket in the jawbone. This becomes necessary for various reasons, such as severe tooth decay, advanced gum disease or issues related to overcrowding during Orthodontic treatment.

Dental extractions can be categorised into three main types:

  1. Simple Extractions: These occur when the tooth crown is visible, enabling a straightforward removal from its socket. Simple extractions are typically managed with minimal complexity.
  2. Complex Extractions: In cases where the tooth is severely damaged, hidden beneath the gum, or involves multi-rooted teeth requiring the separation of roots, a more intricate procedure is necessary. Complex extractions demand a higher level of skill and precision.
  3. Surgical Extractions: When a tooth is deeply buried beneath the gum and bone, surgical access becomes imperative for an accurate extraction. Surgical extractions may be necessary for impacted wisdom teeth or situations where conventional methods are insufficient.

Our experienced dental and surgical teams are committed to providing the highest standard of care, regardless of the complexity of the extraction required.

Before proceeding with a tooth extraction, our Dentists will thoroughly assess your dental condition. If extraction is necessary, they will provide a detailed explanation of the procedure, address any concerns you may have and discuss potential replacement options such as dental implants, dentures or bridges.

During the extraction itself, our skilled team will prioritise your comfort and typically administer local anesthesia to ensure a pain-free experience.

Post-extraction, our team will guide you through proper aftercare instructions to promote efficient healing. We emphasize the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene to prevent complications and encourage a swift recovery.
