A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. When a tooth has been damaged or broken by decay, we will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. If preserving the original tooth is not an option, we will likely need to extract your tooth.

Tooth extractions are also sometimes required for cosmetic treatments. For example, dental implants generally require your tooth to be extracted.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any options to tooth extractions?

If the tooth has decayed to a point where it can not be repaired or significantly damaged, it is typically best to have it extracted. This will maintain and improve your oral health.

What does the procedure involve?

We’ll use local anaesthetic to numb the area around the tooth and ensure you are comfortable. Once you are numb and can’t feel anything, the dentist will begin the extraction process. We first increase the size of the socket around the affected tooth and then the dentist will gently, and painlessly pull the tooth from side to side until it is loose enough to extract.

Is the tooth extraction painful?

The local anaesthetic will prevent you from feeling any pain. Some patients feel minor discomfort from the pressure of the tooth being maneuvered prior to extraction.

What happens after the tooth is extracted?

After the extraction, a small stitch might be needed to stop any bleeding. If a stitch is not required, the dentist may simply ask you to bite down on a cotton pad. This will stop any bleeding.

Are there any risks involved?

Tooth extractions are very safe and an extremely common procedure. However, as with all procedures there is very small possibility of mild side effects or complications. Most patients with mild side effects or complications find that they go away very quickly after finishing the extraction. Some side effects include:

  • Swelling around the area where the tooth was extracted
  • Tenderness in the gums
  • Stiffness in the jaw
  • Mild pain
  • Light bleeding
  • I’ve been coming here for a year now and definitely a place I’d recommend. Venessa was my assistant today, she had great communication and took care of my braces for me well.
