Tooth Extraction

When is a tooth extraction required?

An extraction (i.e. removal) is sometimes needed when a tooth is no longer salvageable due to extensive damage, decay or infection.

Other times, extractions are performed to remove wisdom teeth that are impacted and causing pain as well as damage to their neighbouring teeth. For wisdom teeth extractions, please book a consultation with one of our highly experienced dentists.

What does the procedure involve?

Before an extraction, a thorough assessment of the tooth and its surrounding area is required. This involves careful evaluation both clinically and radiographically.

Although it sounds daunting, the process does not have to be a stressful one. At High Dental, we ensure that you are sufficiently numbed up before proceeding with the extraction. During the procedure, you will only feel pressure and a lot of wriggling, but there should be no pain.

How do I replace the extracted tooth?

It is important to plan an extraction with future replacement options in mind. This is because changes to the underlying bone occur after a tooth is removed which may compromise certain procedures.  

Options to replace the gap that is left over after an extraction include: 

  • implants, 
  • bridge, and
  • dentures.

Please see tooth replacement for more information.
