Tooth Extractions

At Broadway Dental Boutique, we do all we can to prevent extractions. However, sometimes the very best option is removing the problem tooth, to save you from further issues and discomfort. We have plenty of options for tooth replacements so you aren’t left with a gap in your smile.

If you think you need an extraction, the best thing to do is book a dental exam, so our dentist can assess your teeth.

Why Does My Tooth Need To Be Extracted?

There are a number of reasons why an extraction is necessary. If the tooth is damaged beyond repair, the safest option is to remove it to avoid any infection. In some cases, we can use a root canal treatment, but if the tooth is too damaged, we will have to remove it.

Tooth extraction may be necessary to remove a tooth loosened by gum disease, or one that has extensive decay and has become infected as a result. We also may need to remove teeth to assist with orthodontic treatment and provide enough space for teeth to move into a better position.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Most people have four wisdom teeth, two in the upper jaw and two in the lower jaw.

One of the most common oral surgery procedures we carry out is removing wisdom teeth, this is because sometimes wisdom teeth are unable to come through because they are being blocked by another tooth, the surrounding bone, or the gums. To save them from causing further issues, the best option is to remove them.

Improperly erupted wisdom teeth are breeding grounds for bacteria and may cause tooth decay, sometimes even affecting the neighbouring teeth.

What To Expect

Your Extraction Journey

  • Step 1

    Your initial visit to the dentist includes an examination of your mouth and X-rays to determine the position of the wisdom teeth and their condition.

  • Step 2

    We then perform the extraction. The procedure can be performed under local anaesthesia (with or without sedation to control anxiety) or general anaesthesia.

  • Step 3

    We then provide you with some post treatment care instructions.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It

“My husband had an infected tooth which needed removing. Our regular dentist was not able to fully remove the tooth and so we tried out Broadway Dental Boutique from a recommendation. Aamna Khokhar helped us out and removed all traces of the tooth and treated the infection. She was great and even the aftercare was fantastic! Highly recommend using this place.”

FAQs

Tooth Extractions FAQs

How do I book in for an extraction?

The first step is coming in for a new patient exam, so our dentist can assess whether an extraction is a suitable option.

Why do wisdom teeth need to be extracted?

Wisdom teeth often need to be extracted because there is not enough space in the mouth for them to come through properly. This can lead to various issues such as impaction, crowding, pain, infection, and damage to nearby teeth.

Is an extraction painful?

The extraction procedure itself should not be painful because you will be under anesthesia or sedation. However, you may experience some discomfort and swelling in the days following the extraction. Pain can typically be managed with prescribed or over-the-counter pain medication.

Can I avoid wisdom teeth extraction through preventive measures?

Wisdom teeth extraction is often necessary due to lack of space or other issues. Regular dental check-ups can help identify potential problems early, but extraction may still be recommended if issues arise.
