Tooth extractions can also be a part of a larger dental procedure including the extraction of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic or invisalign treatment, however we emphasise that we only take this option if absolutely necessary.
Extraction of teeth is a simple procedure that can be done in the dental chair under a local anesthetic. Sometimes the tooth may need to be split in order to assist in its removal (especially with impacted wisdom teeth and badly broken teeth). The procedure itself is pain free as a result of local anesthetic, however, you may experience some discomfort after the anesthetic wears off. This can be easily controlled by over-the-counter pain relief medication.
