As a preventive care practice, at Crown House Dental Practice we carry out tooth extractions only when absolutely necessary.

At Crown House Dental Practice, our team will always do everything we can to preserve the health of a natural tooth. There are some cases, however, where tooth extraction is necessary in order to secure and maintain the health of the surrounding teeth and the overall well-being of the mouth. Our dentists know that a tooth extraction can be a cause for anxiety or worry in some patients, but with modern techniques, and our team’s skill and compassion, there is no need to be worried.


Why might I need a tooth extraction?
In many cases, we might need to remove a tooth due to extensive damage caused by gum disease or tooth decay. Other reasons for tooth extraction include impacted or infected wisdom teeth, overcrowding of the mouth, a loose tooth that can’t be repaired, or infection due to a weakened immune system.

Will I need to replace my tooth?
Your replacement needs will depend on why the extraction was necessary. If we are removing a tooth due to damage, decay, or disease then we will almost certainly recommend replacement as missing teeth can go on to cause a variety of different oral health issues. If we are performing the extraction due to overcrowding, or an impacted wisdom tooth, then we will not need to replace the tooth.

What happens during the treatment?
There are two different types of tooth extraction. During a simple extraction, we will apply a local anaesthetic and once it has taken effect our dentists will simply gently remove the tooth in question with a pair of forceps. Surgical extractions are carried out when the tooth is broken or buried beneath the gum line such as with an impacted wisdom tooth.

Is the treatment painful?
Whether you have a simple or surgical extraction, you’ll always first be placed under anaesthetic so you don’t feel a thing. After the treatment, once the anaesthetic wears off, you will probably experience some pain and soreness at the site of extraction. This can usually be treated with ibuprofen or paracetamol.
