Tooth Extraction

Tooth Removal

A tooth which is very decayed or damaged, or loose because of gum disease, may have to be extracted. Wisdom teeth sometimes have to be extracted if they have come through at an awkward angle and are causing problems (such as decay in adjacent teeth or, being difficult to clean, and causing infections). Teeth are sometimes taken out from children’s mouths to help other teeth which are crowded to grow straight, (usually on the advice of an orthodontist).

We’ll check your medical history before starting and if it’s safe to go ahead you’ll be given local anaesthetic. If you’re really worried to the point where you think you may not be able to go ahead with the procedure we can discuss your options.

Some teeth are easier to take out than others

A local anaesthetic (an injection in your mouth) will be used to numb the tooth before it is extracted; this is the best treatment for most patients. In some cases, for children or nervous patients, or where a tooth might prove difficult to remove, sedation (something to make you relaxed) with a local anaesthetic may be used. On rare occasions a general anaesthetic may be considered. If a general anaesthetic is needed, you will have to go to a hospital or a specialist treatment centre (you are likely to be able to go home the same day, but not all patients are able to do so).

While the tooth is being taken out you may hear some noise and feel some pressure as the tooth is being eased out- but you should not feel pain. Sometimes stitches are put into the gum to minimise any post extraction bleeding, to make the area more comfortable and help it heal quickly.

Benefits of tooth removal

    • Whatever pain has been bothering you will stop
    • Further damage to your other teeth and gums from badly positioned or infected teeth will stop
    • Your general oral health will benefit

Afterwards: You may need a day or so off work to recover, depending on how difficult the extraction was and whether sedation or a general anaesthetic was used. Most people experience very little post-operation discomfort. Your dentist will ensure that the bleeding has stopped before you leave the practice. You should not smoke or drink for at least 24 hours after an extraction.

I've been registered with Mansion House Dental for a number of years now. I cannot fault the level of patient care and service provided by Dr Qasim Abbasi and his colleagues. When it comes to other private practices, you're normally given the hard upsell by dentists (particularly on cosmetic procedures). But at Mansion House Dental they have always put my long term wellbeing first.

Could not be happier with the service received from Dr. Abbasi. Visited from a colleague's referral, was cautious given the standard of service and professionalism from some of the practices near by. Very friendly and thoughtful practice, would recommend to anyone working in the city.

I’ve been to Mansion House Dental a number of times this year and on every occasion the care I have received from Dr Qasim and the rest of the team has been excellent. Dr Qasim is very knowledgeable and he always takes time to answer my questions and explain different treatment options clearly. The facilities are clean and modern and appointment times are flexible. I highly recommend this practise for both routine check ups and whitening.

I highly recommend this dental practice! My doctor was Qasim Abbasi and I can tell he has a great attention to detail and high intrinsic motivation to deliver the best outcome for his patients. Over the past couple of months I had a series of visits I was always amazed by his professionalism and attitude when challenged with complex issues.

I can’t rate this practice highly enough - I had Invisalign on both upper and lower arches, plus whitening and a cosmetic filling for a chipped tooth. I also had lingual retainers. Every step of the process was explained to me upfront, there were no hidden costs, and service was really professional and friendly. I had quite a few queries and they were all responded to super quickly (usually same day.) I am recommending to friends and wouldn’t hesitate to come back - thank you!!

A Highly skilled and modern practice
