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.

Do I Need to Have My Tooth Extracted?

If you are experiencing pain with a troublesome tooth or it doesn’t look quite right, we recommended that you come in to see us so we can asses the effected tooth. We always work to the principles that extracting a tooth is always the last resort as your natural teeth are very precious and are irreplaceable (even though modern restorations come pretty close).

Even though there are many different types of modern restorations that are available (and are very effective), it is always the best to keep your natural teeth for as long as possible, and prevent any dental problems through regular oral hygiene and dental care. Prevention will always be better than the treatment in terms of oral health, cost and pain caused by any problems.

Extractions for
Nervous Patients
Sedation Available

Extractions can be a stressful time for any patient. Even though we carry out extractions under local anesthetic which numbs the site of the extraction and eliminates pain. You may feel pressure and movement around the tooth which can be an uncomfortable experience. Our dentists always practices slow and steady techniques to reduce any uncomfortable feeling during treatments, but the whole situation of an extraction can become too much for really nervous patients.

We offer IV sedation for nervous patients that can be used with all treatments. IV sedation will induce a complete relaxed state for the patient. Even though the patient won’t be fully under, the whole experience will be a completely/partially lost memory that renders the whole visit to the dentist as pleasant, calm and not stressful.
