Tooth extraction may become necessary when your dentist cannot save a tooth with other dental treatments — for instance, when a tooth has decayed beyond repair. In some cases of periodontal disease, a more severe form of gum disease, the teeth can become loose due to tissue loss. If this occurs, you will need to have them removed.

At Absolute Dental, our priority is to save your tooth, but if extraction becomes necessary, we will make sure the process is as straightforward and comfortable for you as possible.

Using a local anaesthetic, your dentist will ensure the area is completely numb before removing the affected tooth. You may also request IV Sedation to help you relax.

Once the dentist has removed the tooth, they will advise you on how to care for the wound. Typically, this means eating soft foods, avoiding drinking through a straw and spitting to prevent you from dislodging the blood clot that forms within the extraction site.

If necessary, you may use over-the-counter painkillers to help with any discomfort resulting from the procedure.

If you are experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity, call us on 0161 773 9922 to book a consultation.
