WHY WOULD I NEED A TOOTH REMOVED?
There are a number of reasons why you might need teeth taken out. The most common include:
- Severe tooth decay
- Gum disease (periodontal disease)
- A broken tooth that can’t be repaired
- An abscess (a collection of pus) on your gums or around your teeth
- Impacted wisdom teeth
If we do need to remove teeth, we’ll discuss the options, including replacement crowns and implants.
What to expect
We’ll make sure that we completely numb your mouth before we begin, so you will only feel some pressure, but not any pain. It’s normal for your gums to bleed after an extraction, and once this stops, you’re free to go home. Our dentists will talk you through aftercare and may book a follow-up appointment to see how you’re healing.
