Although we focus on providing preventive care, occasionally we may need to remove a tooth if we cannot repair it or it is causing problems. We may also need to take away a tooth to make more space in your mouth. Reasons for extraction include:
We will carry out your extraction under a local anaesthetic in a well-regulated clinical setting. If you are very worried about the procedure you may be able to have sedation.
If you experience any discomfort following an extraction, you can take over-the-counter painkillers.
