More about this treatment

More in-depth information

A Dental Extraction or tooth removal involves completely removing a tooth crown and its root. Common reasons to remove a tooth include: tooth decay, infection, severe gum disease or crooked teeth as part of Orthodontic treatment.

During your appointment a local anaesthetic injection will be placed into the gum next to the tooth being removed. When the gum and tooth are completely numb, moderate pressure is applied to the root to loosen it. When there is movement in the root the tooth is removed. The treatment is usually quick, pain free and has a fast recovery.

Frequently asked questions

What will I feel during a Dental Extraction?

A local anaesthetic injection is placed into the gum next to the wisdom tooth being removed. This will feel like a small sharp scratch or pinch, after which your gum and tooth will be numb. You now will not feel any pain during the treatment.

The numb sensation feels tingly or heavy around the teeth being treated including  lips, chin, cheek or tongue. You can feel a sensation of pressure during the tooth removal which is not painful and you can sometimes hear some noises.

How long does the treatment take?

The time spent removing a tooth is approximately 5-10 minutes and the total treatment time is generally 30 minutes.

Will I have to take time off work?

We recommend taking the rest of the day off work. Most people  would have recovered enough to go back to work the next day.

What can I expect afterwards?

The numb sensation generally lasts 2-4 hours. We do not recommend you chew any food or drink hot drinks while you are numb to prevent you from chewing your lip, cheek or tongue and burning your mouth. You are able to drink water straight after this treatment.

Some minor bleeding after treatment is normal. If this persists, apply pressure by biting firmly down over the treated area with a gauze swab or clean handkerchief for 20-30 minutes. There can be some slight bruising and/or swelling which usually settles after 3-5 days after treatment.

Will I be in pain afterwards?

It is common to feel some soreness after this treatment. We recommend taking a pain killer straight away after having a tooth removed while you are still numb. We recommend Paracetamol and/or Ibuprofen, which is available over the counter. Taking a pain killer will help prevent any immediate discomfort or pain. Some people may need to take pain killers for the next 1-5 days after treatment.

Can I be sedated for this treatment?

Yes. Sedation involves giving you medicine into a vein via a small cannula that makes you feel sleepy and relaxes you both physically and mentally. This medicine is given to you by an Anaesthetist or a Dental Sedationist. You will need someone to take you home afterwards.
