Sometimes it is not possible to save a tooth because the decay or damage is too extensive.

In addition, teeth sometimes have to be removed prior to certain orthodontic procedures when there is overcrowding to make more room for the remaining teeth. If a tooth is too weak it might be removed as it will not withstand the pressure placed on it by braces.

What steps are involved in a tooth extraction?

Your dentist will numb the area surrounding the tooth to be extracted so that you remain comfortable throughout. The tooth is removed and the whole procedure should only last a few minutes.

Why are wisdom teeth sometimes removed?

Wisdom teeth are the last molars to appear at the back of the mouth, usually by the time you reach your mid-twenties but sometimes earlier or later. For most people, they do not cause any problems. Sometimes there is not enough room for them to grow properly.

They might get stuck in the gum (impacted) or grow out at an angle. Impacted wisdom teeth will not need to be removed if they don’t cause any problems. Having your wisdom teeth removed is a common procedure and one that we do at Hampden Dental & Aesthetics Clinic using a local anaesthetic. Our dentists are also well experienced in treating nervous patients, so to ensure that you are in the safest hands.

What can I do to help the healing process?

  • Do not rinse your mouth out for 24 hours after extraction and rest.
  • Avoid hot drinks and spicy foods.
  • If there is any bleeding, bite down on clean gauze or tissue.
  • After 24 hours use a gentle, warm salt water rinse (1 tsp to a glass).
  • Take care not to dislodge the blood clot that has formed.
  • For the first few days try to eat on the opposite side of the mouth.
  • Avoid smoking as it slows down healing.
  • Avoid alcohol as it encourages bleeding.
