If your tooth is damaged or decayed and can’t be repaired with a filling or crown, your dentist may decide to remove (extract) the tooth.
When your tooth can’t be repaired, tooth removal may be the best option for you. We will talk through the options available, during your consultation. If you think you might need a tooth extraction please give us a call on 01305 774370 to book in for an appointment or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHY ARE TEETH REMOVED?
There are lots of reasons why you might need to have a tooth removed. For example, if you have severe tooth decay, gum disease (periodontal disease), a broken tooth that cannot be repaired, and abcess, crowded teeth or an impacted wisdom tooth.
We will explain how you can prepare for the procedure. We’ll ask about your dental and medical history so be sure to let us know about any medical conditions, allergies or recent surgery, as well as any medicines you’re currently taking.
We will put you at ease and will explain what will happen before, during and afer the extraction. If you’re unsure about anything, just ask. No question is too small and being fully informed will help you feel more at ease.
If you are already registered with us and require emergency treatment please call the practice to book in with us.
