Extraction and Surgical Extraction

How it works

Many heavily decayed or broken down teeth cannot be saved. This is also true for teeth that are surrounded by advanced gum disease. If such teeth are not removed then further problems can occur, such as pain, swelling, infection/abscess, and the spread of gum disease.

Some of these teeth that require removal are broken to gum level, or are full buried beneath. In order to remove these teeth, a “surgical” extraction is required. This involves making a short nick in the gum, in order to uncover the tooth, so that we can remove it in full. This is a very simple procedure that in most cases is carried out under local anaesthetic (with an injection).

Patients do not feel any discomfort during this procedure, as the local anaesthetic removes all sensations of pain. Where appropriate, this procedure can also be carried out with sedation or general anaesthetic (see other treatments).
