Extraction is always a last resort and our priority is to save natural teeth where we can. For problems affecting the outer tooth this may involve a filling, an inlay or onlay, or a crown. If the internal pulp of the tooth has become infected then it can be saved with root canal treatment.
However, saving teeth may not always be possible for a number of reasons. A tooth may be too badly damaged (either by accident or decay) to save. There may also be overcrowding in the mouth, with not enough room for all the teeth to sit comfortably together. In these instances an extraction may be advised by your dentist as the best course of action.
It is very common for there not to be enough room for wisdom teeth when they start to come through. If this is the case then they can develop at an angle and push up against the teeth that are already in place. This is likely to cause some pain or discomfort.
If you are experiencing dental pain then it is important to contact your dentist as soon as possible. They will carefully examine your teeth and assess the best course of action.
We have a team of oral surgeons that are specially trained for extracting wisdom teeth as well as other badly broken teeth.
Extractions can be carried out under sedation.
