We understand that dental extractions can be a necessary part of maintaining your oral health.

Our skilled and caring team of dentists is here to provide you with the highest quality care and ensure your comfort throughout the extraction process. Whether you’re facing a problematic tooth or need wisdom teeth removed, we’re here to guide you through the procedure.

Types of Dental Extractions

  • Simple Extractions: Simple extractions involve the removal of a visible and easily accessible tooth. Local anaesthesia is typically sufficient for pain control.
  • Surgical Extractions: Surgical extractions are more complex and involve teeth that may be impacted (partially or fully covered by gum tissue) or require a more extensive procedure. These extractions are often more invasive and require an oral surgeon to undertake this procedure.

The Extraction Process

The process of dental extraction involves the following steps:

  1. Evaluation: Our skilled dentists will thoroughly evaluate your oral health, taking X-rays if required, to determine the best approach for your extraction.
  2. Anaesthesia: Local anaesthesia will be administered to numb the affected area, ensuring you are comfortable and pain-free during the procedure.
  3. Tooth Extraction: The tooth will be carefully removed using specialised instruments.
  4. Post-Extraction Care: After the extraction, we will provide you with instructions on how to care for the extraction site to ensure proper healing.

Benefits of Dental Extractions

  • Pain relief from problematic teeth.
  • Prevention of further dental issues or infections.
  • Improved oral health and comfort.
  • Space creation for orthodontic treatment, if necessary.

Aftercare and Recovery

Recovery from a dental extraction is typically straightforward. You may experience some swelling and mild discomfort, but this can be managed with pain medication and following post-extraction care instructions. It’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene to promote healing and prevent infection.


1. When Are Dental Extractions Necessary?

Dental extractions may be recommended in various situations, including:

  • Severe Tooth Decay: When a tooth is severely decayed and cannot be effectively restored with a filling, crown, or root canal therapy, extraction may be necessary.
  • Advanced Gum Disease: In cases of advanced periodontal disease, where the supporting structures of a tooth are compromised, extraction may be the best option to prevent further damage.
  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, can become impacted, causing pain, infection, or potential damage to adjacent teeth. In such cases, extraction is often advised.
  • Orthodontic Treatment: In some orthodontic cases, extraction of one or more teeth may be necessary to create space for proper alignment.
  • Broken or Fractured Teeth: Teeth that are fractured or broken beyond repair may need to be extracted to prevent infection or discomfort filling.
