Tooth Extraction London

Tooth Extraction (Removal)

Elevate Your Tooth Extraction Experience at Our Central London Practice

  • Tooth badly damaged, decayed or broken apart?
  • Root canal failed or a toothache that just won't go away?
  • Are wisdom teeth coming through with no room in the mouth?
  • Is gum disease-causing your tooth to become wobbly or loose?
  • Too many teeth in your smile?
Overcrowding, severe decay, gum disease or heavily impacted teeth are all situations where our general dentists might recommend tooth extraction as your viable next step.

That said, we will do everything possible to save your natural tooth, but in the sad event it must be removed, we can address the gap with advanced tooth-like prosthetics like dental implants or dental bridges.

Book a tooth extraction 

  • Tooth extractions from £185
  • Painless procedure with gas and air provided
  • Temporary and life-long replacements for missing teeth

Call 020 7621 0600 to book your extraction appointment.

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.

Tooth replacement

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

I've been seeing George for over 15 years. One of my best decisions. Teeth needed serious attention and were immediately "rescued". They have been maintained to an excellent level ever since. Fantastic treatment and continuing results.

American 🇺🇸 Pilot with a very busy schedule. Was in London of one of my many layovers summer 2023. Had not been to a dentist in sometime. Was in need of a deep scaling for oral hygiene and start pains of a Carrie. I’m one of those and for all work completed under N20 (Nitrous Oxide Gas) for seems to be only way. He was able to see me and complete this matter swiftly and professionally. Didn’t scare me out of the chair. Recommend this practice and would return on a layover.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting CapCityDental for a dental cleaning, and I must say, it was an exceptional experience from start to finish. As someone who prioritizes oral health, I've had my fair share of dental appointments, but this one truly stood out. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcomed and at ease, setting the tone for a fantastic dental cleaning session. 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. The hygienist nurse took the time to discuss my oral health habits and offered valuable insights on how to improve my routine. 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. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left, I felt valued as a patient and confident in the care I received. The professionalism, expertise, and genuine concern for patient well-being were evident throughout. I wholeheartedly recommend this clinic to anyone seeking exceptional dental care in a welcoming and modern environment. I'm already looking forward to my next visit!

I had emergency root canal with George and team, and subsequent fillings and hygiene. The service and quality of finish was impeccable. Excellent communication and a focus on patient experience puts you at ease from the start. The after care is also excellent. Couldn’t recommend enough.

I have been so incredibly impressed with my experiences at CAP City Dental. George has been so professional, caring and clearly has a wealth of experience within dentistry. I have had a variety of treatments over many years with George and he is the only dentist I have ever come across that has been able to ease my anxiety surrounding dental treatment. The new Austin Friars premises is so well located in the heart of London and it’s actually a tranquil experience to attend appointments.100% recommended!

George and his team have been looking after me for almost 10 years now. When George took me on, my teeth were in a very sorry state. Since then George has worked very hard to improve the function, health and look of my teeth. 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. Thanks George.

I had a tooth that was causing me severe pain. I was feeling highly anxious because my previous dentist treated the wrong tooth. My childhood orthodontist left me with an occlusion and had taken out too many teeth. I was having trouble finding a dentist who would not only treat my gaps and cavities, but would also provide an unbiased opinion of my previous treatments. After appointments with other clinics, I found Cap City Dental. Dr Druttman, Marilou, Reni and Michael were welcoming. They helped me correct years of problems in just three visits over as many weeks. The team genuinely try to understand what you are trying to achieve. They don’t push you to have work done. I particularly appreciated Dr Druttman’s comprehensive reports in which he provided his professional opinion on what happened and what should happen moving forward. I highly recommend them not only because they make sure you feel comfortable, but provide you with enough information to ensure you can make an informed decision.
