A tooth may need to be extracted because it is poorly positioned in your smile, or to prepare your mouth for orthodontic treatment. Your tooth may have developed an abscess, become badly decayed, or you may have developed advanced gum disease.
Will having my tooth extracted be painful?
Tooth extraction is no longer a painful experience with current dental techniques.
Our highly trained dental team will begin by placing a local anaesthetic at the area surrounding your tooth. Once the local anaesthetic takes effect, you will not feel pain in that area.
If you experience any discomfort during the extraction procedure, our attentive team will be listening and ready to help make you comfortable.
What will I need to do after my tooth is removed?
During your extraction appointment, our helpful team will explain how you will care for your mouth after the extraction procedure.
By following some simple steps, you can prevent any potential complications (such as infection) following extraction.
When will I be able to eat my regular diet again?
After your extraction procedure, you should eat only soft foods for a couple of days. As you heal, you can add solid foods back into your diet. Since patients heal at different rates, this time varies.
