Tooth Extractions: Why would I need one?


If your tooth has an infection that is damaging the bone or is causing you pain or discomfort, the only option may be tooth extraction.

Our first goal is to save the tooth, but if it is not possible, extraction can prevent further damage from infection. Once the extraction is complete, you then have the option of replacing your missing tooth/teeth.

Procedures such as dental implants and dental bridges are excellent choices for tooth replacement.

Some of common reasons for tooth extraction are:


Dentists remove teeth for various reasons such as:

  • Dental cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Trauma or injury to the tooth
  • Wisdom teeth ache
  • Preparation for a dental prosthesis
  • Dental infections
  • Preparation for dental braces

You will be given aftercare instructions, regarding how to care for your mouth as it heals, what to expect, and what to do if you experience complications. We would be happy to schedule a follow-up appointment to address any additional concerns you may have.

Simple Extraction


Your dentist in Crowborough will usually use a simple extraction when the tooth is visible in the mouth. To be sure this is an appropriate method, your dentist will first take X-rays of your teeth and ask you about your medical history, including whether you are currently taking any medications.


Surgical Extraction


You need a surgical extraction if your tooth is broken off at the gum line or it has not yet erupted. Only some general dentists are qualified to carry out surgical extractions, along with all oral surgeons.


The process involves cutting a small incision into your gum to access the tooth. Sometimes, it is also necessary to remove some of the bone around the tooth or cut the tooth into pieces to extract it. Although the procedure is more complex than a simple extraction, it is often possible to receive a surgical tooth extraction under local anaesthetic.


This may be administered through an injection or IV.

Do You Love Your Dentist? Our Patients Do!

Don’t just take our word for it! The kind words others have said about us are true testaments of how we treat our patients, friends, families, and Crowborough neighbours.

Just had my first appointment there and cannot praise the lovely Hazel Del Rosa enough. Gentle, caring and incredibly thorough at explaining issues. If I hadn’t already been aware her explanation wouldn’t have scared me in the slightest, I felt reassured regarding the care offered.
Had a great experience at CGD. I have had some brutal experiences in the past with other dentists and was apprehensive. I needed an extraction and it was handled brilliantly. No pain at all and done quickly and with a great deal of care and sensitivity. I highly recommend this practise if you have any fear of visiting the dentist. Excellent!
I visited Shreyas Mhatre for an implant assessment which first required treatment for an underlying infection. Throughout the whole process I really appreciated his calm and reassuring manner along with a clear, honest expectation for success. Combined with his attention to detail and precision, I felt confident with his work and am very happy with the final results. Highly recommended for implant and root canal work.
