You might need to have a tooth pulled out if you have:

  • severe gum disease
  • a deep infection in a tooth
  • a broken tooth
  • crowded teeth
  • problems with a wisdom tooth

Wisdom teeth, which are the last adult teeth you get, sometimes need to be removed. They can become stuck if they don’t have enough space to grow properly. If you need a tooth to be removed, your dentist will usually give you a local anesthetic to numb your mouth so you don’t feel pain. Your dentist will then use a special tool to loosen the tooth in the gum. Once the tooth is loose, your dentist will remove it with forceps.

What to expect after a tooth extraction?

After your tooth has been removed, your dentist will probably need to make sure the gum socket is clean. If you needed a cut in the gum during tooth removal, you might need a stitch to close the cut. You might have some bleeding and if so, your dentist will usually ask you to bite down on a piece of gauze to stop the bleeding. Once the anesthetic wears off, you will probably have some pain. Your dentist might write you a prescription for pain relief medicine or recommend an over-the-counter medicine. You’ll also probably be told to eat soft foods and chew on the unaffected side of your mouth for a while.

At our Dental Clinic, we’re proud to offer professional tooth removal and replacement solutions when you need a tooth extracted from the mouth. Your dentist will examine your tooth and explain the reasons why your tooth needs to be extracted. An x-ray will be taken to help plan the best way to remove the tooth and to see if an abscess is present  extractions

Tooth Extraction Aftercare

We offer useful and reliable tooth extraction aftercare advice for patients following the procedure. We highly recommend not disturbing the blood clot that forms in the socket, as this assists the healing process. If the socket does start bleeding, we suggest placing a clean tissue over the extraction site and applying pressure by biting down. The bleeding should stop naturally within a few minutes. If bleeding persists, please contact your dentist for further advice.
