A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket. This can be done either under local anaesthetic in the chair or whilst under a general anaesthetic in the hospital.


When are extractions needed?

Commonly teeth are extracted due to several reasons including but not limited to:

  • Dental decay
  • Dental infection
  • The tooth is so broken down there is not enough left to fix
  • Severe gum disease that cause the teeth to be too loose to eat
  • Fractured teeth
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • For Orthodontic work

What does the procedure involve?

Simple extraction: This is usually performed under local anaesthetic. This simply involves wiggling the tooth loose with our specialised instruments.

Surgical Extractions: This is a more invasive procedure for teeth that cannot be easily accessed, for example, if the tooth is broken under the gum line. If a surgical extraction is required, your dentist will talk you through the procedure and recovery time.
