Tooth extraction procedure
- The tooth’s position, root shape and formation are evaluated
- The patient’s tolerance, attitude and disposition are discussed to see if sedation should be administered.
- Patients can be offered support and relaxing gas if they are particularly anxious.
- The tooth and its root are removed
- Sutures are placed over the socket
Some discomfort can be expected an hour after the procedure, and patients are provided with post-procedure instructions to prevent infection and ensure smooth healing. The next day, everything should feel more normal, with discomfort subsiding.
Try to save the tooth and avoid extraction
In some scenarios, we can avoid a tooth extraction with advanced procedures like root canals and apicoectomies, which can remove damaged tissue and save the tooth.
Root canals cost from £458 and will likely be a patient’s last resort to save their tooth. However, root canals often use dental crowns as a final restoration to cover the entire tooth for additional strength and functionality.
Ideal next steps after tooth removal
Patients don’t often like being left with a gap in the mouth, especially in the visible portions of the smile. But don’t worry; dentistry has advanced away from partial dentures, which are not always the most favourable missing tooth solution.
For example, dental implants are the most life-like tooth replacement method available in today’s dentistry and offer patients the chance to replace a missing tooth for up to 20-30 years.
For £2,780, patients can have an artificial titanium tooth root positioned into their jawbone to prevent bone loss, tooth shifting and further tooth loss caused by ignored missing teeth.
“I have been seeing George for several years now, and his work is always impeccable. He does both the check-ups and cleaning for my regular visits, which I like, and my teeth always feel so clean, and I feel assured of the health of my teeth and gums after his inspection.” Chris, London
The moment I stepped into the clinic, the friendly receptionist – Michael, greeted me with a warm smile and efficiently took care of the check-in process. The waiting area was clean, comfortable, and featured modern decor that helped create a relaxing atmosphere. It was clear that the staff at at CapCityDental value professionalism and patient comfort.
Dr. George, the senior dental hygienist was a true expert in his field. He took the time to explain the entire cleaning process, making sure I was comfortable and informed every step of the way. Indeed, it did feel like a warm hug. Furthermore, his dental nurse Marilou was just a gem. Her gentle yet thorough approach put me at ease, and I could sense her commitment to delivering top-notch oral care. It’s evident that CapCityDental has a team that’s passionate about what they do.
What truly sets CapCityDental apart was their dedication to personalized care and patient education.

She answered all my questions patiently, showing a genuine interest in my oral health journey. This level of individualized attention left a lasting impression on me.
In conclusion, my dental cleaning experience at CapCityDental was nothing short of outstanding.

Thanks to George I only require routine checkups and the odd piece of work now. Seeing George has made going to the dentist a breeze and a very happy social occasion!
I can’t recommend George highly enough. The best dentist I’ve ever had. Very attentive and caring…with exquisite attention to detail; second to none.
I should also mention that the new location in Austin Friars is a lovely calm oasis in the heart of the City. Modern health setting in a historic built environment.
