We Will Only Extract
Teeth as a Last Resort
An extraction is the dental term used to describe the removal of a tooth from a patients mouth.
I have been using Ascent Dental for the 3 years, during that time I have had a range of treatments including fillings, an extraction under sedation, Damon braces, teeth whitening and contouring. I was a very nervous patient, but the team have been supportive and understanding and for the first time in my life I don’t dread visiting the dentist! I finally have the smile I always wanted, and I am sooo pleased with the results!! I would recommend them to everyone.
What Can Cause a
Tooth to Be Extracted?
These are the main factors that can lead to a tooth requiring an extraction:
- Severe tooth infection/decay/trauma – Past the point of saving the tooth
- Supernumerary teeth – additional teeth that appears alongside regular teeth and blocks other teeth from coming through
- Advanced gum disease
- Dental abscess (collection of pus around gums/teeth)
- Teeth that cannot be saved through root canals (endodontics)
- Fractured teeth
- Impacted third molars (blocking the wisdom tooth from coming through)
Also with traditional braces you may of needed a tooth extracted to make room for your new straight teeth (due to overcrowding issues). However, with modern brace systems it is now possible in the majority of cases to treat overcrowding without having to extract a tooth.
Excellent service, rang with a very painful toothache, given emergency appointment and recommended next steps. Following not being able to move up the NHS waiting list and still in pain returned after Christmas for extraction. What i was expecting to be a horrible painful process was done painlessly and efficiently and i cant speak highly enough of both Dentists i saw and the rest of the team. Highly recommended.
Nice and Calm and Relaxed
Here’s one of our resident dentists, Shiv, to answer FAQs about gentle, relaxing sedation for nervous or anxious patients.
Before & After
Composite Veneers –
Upper Front Teeth
This patient’s main issue was the wear and chips on her upper front teeth. She assumed she would need her teeth shaved down for porcelain veneers but we repaired her teeth without preparation in one single visit. She was delighted with the end result.
Composite Veneers –
Upper Front Tooth
Patient attended our clinic after suffering trauma to his upper central incisor tooth. We built the tooth up with composite without having to trim down any of the healthy tooth structure.
Smiling After 40 Years
Fear of the dentist meant Steve waited 40 years to get the vital treatment he needed. Full upper and lower implants have restored Steve’s confidence—and his faith in dentistry.

Brilliant , professional, competent & thoroughly deserved of a Top rate review. I have had a denture implant which is so comfortable & looks just stunning. The care and precision taken by Dr Faresh Desai, his wonderful team & technicians has been outstanding. Now I am having crowns & a partial denture so am qualified to leave a 5 Star plus review. I cannot recommend highly enough.
Made me feel relaxed when I was feeling a bit anxious, really friendly & knowledgeable about what they are doing & sent me off feeling very confident. Followed up with a courtesy call the next day.
Really pleased with my treatment so far 👍👍 …
I have just finished treatment at Ascent Dental Care and can only thank the team for their care and professionalism. I am a very nervous patient so opted for sedation and was glad I did as I now have a less traumatic memory of having a deep clean and treatment for 2 crowns. Thank you to the team and would recommend this surgery to anyone who is nervous and putting off having treatment. Lorraine
Have received excellent care at this dentist. Have a really bad fear of dentists and I have always been shown so much patience and kindness. Really recommend them if you get anxious about dental visits!
As someone who has a dreadful fear of the dentist chair, I would like to thank both Laura for sorting out my emergency tooth problem and Jaz for his kindness and for his approach to my fears. Thank you all for your professionalism and most of all your kindness to someone who has a huge fear of dentists
I have recently finished my treatment and I couldn’t have asked for more. I have the confidence to smile again and all within 6 months…..pretty amazing! The team at the practice are professional and friendly and really put you at ease. I had no problems booking appointments around my working day which was an extra bonus. I would 100% recommend this dental practice!
I have been with Accent dental surgery for the last 5 years and have enjoyed excellent service.
Dental surgeons are competent who provide dental implant service along with other like dental bridges. Staff are very polite and respectful. I will recommend their services to anyone based on my experience.
I had a lingual brace fitted to my top teeth with Ascent Dental last year and I am very pleased with the results. I had some overcrowding and crookedness which has now been resolved and I feel much more confident with my smile! I would definitely recommend this type of brace if you are wishing to straighten your teeth invisibly, no one even noticed that I had a brace unless I pointed it out. The staff were very helpful and supportive during my treatment. I am now considering having my bottom teeth done with the same type of brace.
Fantastic dentist , managed to fit me in same day and extract wisdom tooth that previous dentist had made a real mess of . So happy and pain free at last .
Put off visiting a dentist for some years and need a host of work undertaking. Laura and her assistant Georgie were great. Very professional and compassionate about relieving my anxiety about visiting a dentist. A friendly vibe throughout all the staff creates a relaxed atmosphere I’d reccomend to anyone.
I’ve had a few visits over the last few years for specific work. Everyone is very kind and courteous. I have always had each stage of treatment explained at the start so there were never any nasty surprises. I would happily recommend Ascent it is a caring practice.
The care I received was exemplary from my dentist Mo he made me feel completely relaxed and exxplained the procedure every step of the way I would most definitely use Dorridge again for any root canal work.
