A painless procedure

In the unfortunate case that a tooth needs a removal, it can be teased or elevated out delicately with the use of effective local anaesthesia and sedation. This procedure should never be painful. In aesthetically significant areas, the resultant gap can almost always be immediately temporarily filled, avoiding embarrassment.

Common causes

  • Tooth decay extending to root
  • Gum disease that has destroyed too much supporting bone
  • A vertical fracture that has split the root
  • An abscess where tooth cannot be saved with root canal treatment
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Some cases of crowded teeth


  • Evaluate tooth position, root shape, formation and access level*
  • Discuss your tolerance and attitude
  • Offer support and relaxing gas for anxious patients
  • Gentle tooth or root removal
  • Place sutures (stitches) over tooth socket wound
  • Prescribe painkillers; antibiotics only when necessary
  • Provide post-operative instructions and information

*In complex cases, we can refer you to a specialist Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon.
