General

Extraction

Extracting a tooth is a common dental procedure that is necessary when a tooth has been damaged beyond repair by decay, trauma, or disease. The process involves carefully removing the entire tooth, its root, and any surrounding tissue.

Before extracting a tooth, our dentist will take x-rays to assess the size and shape of the tooth and its root, the amount of surrounding bone, and the presence of any infection. This helps the dentist plan the best way to approach the extraction.

During the extraction, our dentist will use special instruments to loosen the tooth and carefully remove it from the socket. Once the tooth is removed, the dentist will clean the area to remove any debris and fragments. They may also pack the socket with a medicated dressing or stitch the area closed.

After the extraction, our dentist will provide instructions on how to care for the area and manage any discomfort.

How much does a routine dental check-up cost?

The cost of a regular dental check-up will vary depending on your individual needs. The cost of the appointment can include the cost of X-rays, the examination, and any treatment that may need to be done.

An extraction is a dental procedure in which a tooth is removed from the mouth. Extractions are typically performed when a tooth is too damaged to be repaired or if it is impacted and unable to erupt properly.

During your appointment, the dentist will begin by numbing the area around the tooth to be extracted. Next, they will use specialized instruments to loosen and remove the tooth. Finally, they may place stitches or packing material to protect the area and help it heal.

Recovery time will vary depending on the complexity of the extraction. Generally, it will take several days for the area to heal completely. The dentist will provide specific aftercare instructions, including taking antibiotics, avoiding certain foods, and rinsing with a special mouthwash.

The best way to avoid needing an extraction is to practise good oral hygiene, visit the dentist regularly, and attend regular check-ups. If you maintain good oral hygiene, it is less likely that you will require an extraction.

It is normal to experience some level of discomfort after an extraction. The dentist will provide pain medications to help manage pain or discomfort. They may also recommend using an ice pack to reduce swelling.

As with any dental procedure, there are risks associated with extractions. These risks include infection, nerve injury, and excessive bleeding.

We use local anaesthesia, which numbs the area being treated.

After the procedure, you may experience some swelling and tenderness in the area. Your dentist may provide you with a cold compress to reduce swelling and pain. You may also be prescribed antibiotics to prevent infection. It is important to follow your dentist’s aftercare instructions to ensure a successful recovery.

Both the dental nurse and dentist were compassionate and caring. They made sure I was comfortable before carrying out any procedures, and spoke to me as I was a bit anxious about getting work done-
They were punctual, and managed to fit me in at the last minute. Easy to contact via WhatsApp, with quick response.

Been twice and both times the young dentist is extremely kind and reassuring. Had a tooth extraction today and was seamlessly done. My old dentist was quite rude and abrupt. I'm very glad to have found a dentist that takes pride in her work. Well done to all the team. Thank you so much.

Absolutely fantastic service!! I have had teeth out (well roots) had a new denture the service has been second to none. I have a real fear/phobia of dentists I explained this they have been so understanding and supportive. Simon explained every step clearly so I knew what was happening and at what stage. I can't reccomend him enough.

The staff were very good professional and friendly. Very accomadating to work/school scheduals with appointments. Me and my children had a good experience in the surgery. Also with colouring facilities available it helped to keep the children occupied. The head nurse was amazing and went above and beyond to meet all our needs.
