Can we save your tooth from extraction?
There might be some instances where we can avoid a tooth extraction altogether. For example, common tooth-saving treatments like root canals by our in-house endodontists can eliminate infection and tooth pain and save your tooth. Costs for treatment start at £458.
Dental crowns can also provide additional strength to the tooth, acting like a protective cap on top of the tooth to take on the bite’s strength and function.
Ideal steps following tooth removal:
Suppose the reason for your tooth extraction is in conjunction with your orthodontic treatment. In that case, you’ll know that the next steps will involve you undergoing realignment with devices like Invisalign and fixed braces.
However, if you’ve had a tooth removed due to decay or gum disease and are left with a gap, the best next step will be to replace the tooth with an artificial prosthetic.
Ignoring gaps in the mouth can lead to tooth movement and bone loss and cause more teeth to fall out. Therefore, it’s better to use a device like an implant, which acts like an artificial tooth root, to close the gap, as this will be your best option for preserving bone.
Other missing tooth treatments, like dental bridges, can also close the gap if there are two neighbouring teeth on either side, but they do nothing to preserve the bone and will require the otherwise two healthy teeth to be filed down to be placed with crowns.
What will happen on the day - the procedure
- Evaluation of the tooth’s position, root shape, and formation.
- Discussion of your sedation options, particularly if anxiety is a concern.
- Provision of support and relaxation gas for anxious patients.
- Removal of the tooth and its root.
- Placement of sutures over the socket.
Patients can anticipate some discomfort within an hour after the procedure. We provide post-procedure instructions to prevent infection and ensure a smooth healing process.
Any discomfort should subside by the next day, with patients usually reporting a speedy and easy recovery.
“I highly recommend this practice. I have a huge phobia of dentists, drills, injections, extractions, etc, and before I came to this practice, was told I was 9.5 out of 10 on the scale of patient anxiety! I have been coming to this practice for almost 15 years, and my level of anxiety has decreased massively in that time.” Sam, 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. 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.

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.
