At Dorset House Dental, we’ll always do everything we can to save a tooth, but there are some cases where tooth extraction is necessary.

We may decide that a tooth needs extraction due to decay or damage that we cannot fix i.e beyond repair. You may also need an extraction due to infection of the dental pulp, gum disease, or overcrowding of the mouth. In some cases, we may also have to extract a wisdom tooth that has become infected or impacted, or even baby teeth that haven’t fallen out by the time adult teeth erupt.

We understand that the prospect of tooth extraction can be nerve wracking and worrying for many of our patients. However, with our kind, compassionate and highly experienced team, there is no reason to feel nervous about this or any treatment. In most cases, we will apply local anaesthetic to the area so that you do not feel anything while the treatment is happening. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, we will gently widen the socket and carefully loosen and remove the tooth in question before thoroughly cleaning the treated area. In some cases, stitches might be administered to aid in the healing of the area.

You will need to care for the area where the tooth has been extracted, and we provide comprehensive after care instructions to ensure a healthy healing process.
