Our dentist’s first priority is to help restore, repair and save your natural teeth, but if your tooth has excessive decay or trauma, extraction may be unavoidable.
Teeth that are severely broken or decayed can cause an infection in the gum underneath the tooth, which can lead to an abscess. Dentists perform extractions under local anaesthetic. Your dentist will ensure you are comfortable before, during and after your extraction, and will discuss your options for replacing the missing tooth.
Your dentist will also provide you with specific instructions for aftercare such as eating soft foods for 48 hours after extraction and avoid using a straw so you don’t dislodge the blood clot.

It is always important to tell your dentist about your current medication and medical history before having a tooth extracted. Let your dentist know what medications and over-the-counter supplements you ingest. Tell your dentist if you are taking blood thinning medications or aspirin.
Our dentists have years of experience treating a wide variety of dental symptoms. Call us today and we can determine if your tooth requires an extraction or can be treated with a root canal or a crown.
In a lot of cases, follow-up procedures are necessary after an emergency tooth extraction. Patients can either choose between a dental implant, bridge or partial dentures or other treatment. Ask your dentist for advice on which treatment is best for you.
