Teeth Extraction for Damaged or Decayed Teeth

When a tooth is extensively damaged or decayed, extraction may be required for optimal oral health. Our skilled dentists thoroughly assess the tooth’s condition and perform precise extractions. Patient comfort is a priority, and we offer suitable tooth replacement options as necessary.

Teeth Extraction for Overcrowding

To address severe overcrowding or facilitate orthodontic treatment, tooth extraction may be advised to create space and promote proper alignment. Our experienced dentists will assess your unique needs, explain the extraction procedure, and provide personalised care to ensure the best possible outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wisdom teeth often cause problems such as pain, crowding, or infection due to their improper alignment or lack of space in the mouth. Extracting wisdom teeth can prevent these issues and protect oral health.
Our skilled dentists prioritise patient comfort and ensure that the extraction procedure is as painless as possible. Sedatives are typically administered to numb the area.
Recovery time can vary depending on the complexity of the extraction and individual healing factors. Generally, it takes a few days to a week to recover fully. Our dentists will provide post-extraction care instructions to promote healing and minimise discomfort.
While tooth extractions are generally safe, there can be risks involved, such as infection, dry socket, or damage to neighbouring teeth or structures. Our experienced dentists take necessary precautions and closely monitor patients to minimise any potential complications.

In some cases, alternatives to extraction, such as root canal treatment or orthodontic procedures, may be considered to preserve the natural tooth. Our dentists will evaluate your specific situation and recommend the most suitable treatment option based on your oral health needs.

After tooth extraction, replacement is often recommended to restore function and aesthetics. Our dentists can discuss tooth replacement options, such as dental implants, bridges, or dentures, based on your individual needs and preferences.
