Dental extractions are a common dental procedure in which a tooth is removed from its socket in the jawbone. The procedure can be performed for a variety of reasons such as tooth decay, infection, gum disease, orthodontic treatment or for teeth that are impacted or can’t be saved by other means.

During the extraction, our practitioner will numb the area around the tooth to minimise discomfort. The procedure is typically performed under local or general anaesthesia, depending on the complexity of the case.

Once the patient is relaxed, special instruments are used to loosen the tooth and gently rock it back and forth until it is removed from the socket. The socket will be cleaned to remove any debris and a blood clot will be formed to stop the bleeding.

After the extraction, you will be given instructions on how to care for the extraction site and how to manage pain and swelling. Recovery time varies, but usually, people can return to normal activities within a week.
