When extraction of teeth is necessary
Extraction may be necessary if your mouth has become overcrowded or when other procedures like fillings or sealants have failed to restore a damaged tooth. In these cases, it’s important to act quickly with a dead tooth extraction to prevent bacterial infection from spreading to the rest of the mouth and causing other issues like periodontitis.
We’ve had hands-on experience with all kinds of dental extractions, so you can rest assured knowing your tooth removal will be carried out with the highest standards of care.

We understand that tooth extractions are scary — and that’s why we have special measures in place to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Your dentist will take time to discuss the procedure and talk through any anxieties you may have.

Questions about tooth extraction
A local anaesthetic prevents most pain during tooth extraction, but you may still feel pressure and hear noises during the loosening and extraction of the tooth — these can cause discomfort. After the procedure, it’s normal to feel pain for up to 48 hours and your dentist will likely advise you to take painkillers.
It’s normal to experience bleeding in the minutes immediately after extraction. Post-extraction bleeding may also occur up to 12 hours after the procedure. If bleeding persists, contact your dentist. The best way to manage bleeding is to place a clean damp gauze on top of the tooth socket and bite down firmly for 1–2 hours after the extraction takes place.
There are two types of dental extraction: simple and surgical. Surgical tooth extraction is the more complex procedure and involves the removal of teeth that are not easily accessible, such as those below the gumline. During surgical extraction, dentists make an incision in the tissue surrounding the tooth to gain access to it for removal.
