Tooth / Teeth Extraction

A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. Tooth extractions are a common dental procedure but can often cause a lot of anxiety for patients. Being better informed about the extraction procedure and what to expect afterwards can often relieve some of this anxiety and help you to be better prepared for the treatment.

The most common reasons a tooth will require extraction are:
• Trauma to the tooth following a knock to the jaw from a sporting injury or fall.
• Deep decay or severe gum disease in a tooth.
• Not enough space for the teeth.

In some cases, extraction may be the only treatment option available however in other cases, alternative treatment options may be available. Your dentist should discuss any alternative treatment options with you prior to any extraction.

Extractions can be performed by your general dentist or by a dental specialist. Who performs the extraction is likely to depend on how complex the extraction is perceived to be.

Tooth extractions can be divided into two categories: Simple Extractions and Surgical Extractions.
