About the process
Sometimes, damaged teeth can’t be repaired with root canal treatment. This is usually if your tooth is badly damaged or if you have severe gum disease which prevents your tooth from healing or being well supported after treatment. If this happens, your dentist may suggest you have the Tooth extracted.
If you decide to have your tooth removed, your dentist will usually remove it via dental surgery. But sometimes an oral surgeon will carry out the procedure in hospital. You can usually go home on the same day as the procedure.
Your tooth or teeth may need to be removed for several reasons. The most common reasons include:
- severe tooth decay
- gum disease (periodontal disease)
- a broken tooth that can’t be repaired
- an abscess (a collection of pus) on your gums or around your teeth
- crowded teeth – when your teeth don’t have enough space in your jaw
- impacted wisdom teeth – your growing wisdom teeth can’t break through the surface of your gum and get stuck
What is the procedure
Your dentist will check that you’re sitting comfortably in the chair. They will inject a local anaesthetic into the area around the tooth or teeth before starting the procedure. Once your dentist has injected the local anaesthetic, they will wait a few minutes to allow the injection to work. Then they will ask you a few questions to see if it’s taking effect.
The roots of your tooth sit in a socket (hole) in your gum. Your dentist will widen your tooth socket and gently rock your tooth from side to side until it’s lose enough to pull out.
You will feel some pressure in your mouth, but your dentist will help to relieve any discomfort you may feel.
A surgical extraction is complex. This type of extraction needs to be performed if the tooth structure is compromised or if the tooth is not fully erupted, or if it is partially or completely impacted. Surgical means that the surgeon will need to make tissue cuts in order to retrieve the entire tooth. In some cases, we may need to quarter the tooth, break it into sections, and remove it section by section. A surgical extraction tends to take more time and the healing may take more time.
The procedure has lots of advantages. Let us give a brief about the benefits of the treatment.
Healthy teeth: The procedure will remove and restore your decayed teeth, thus helping in maintaining healthy oral condition.
Improved teeth structure: Since the procedure is undertaken to improve the appearance of the teeth, you will get perfect teeth structure after going through the treatment.
Better Oral Condition: Since the dental care will be given much importance, you will be able to maintain proper dental health after conducting the procedure. You decayed teeth will be removed, placing it with a better one.
Long lasting result: You will have a long lasting impact after the procedure is completed. You will be able to maintain the look for the longest of time if you take proper care of your tooth.
Pain free Procedure: The procedure will be pain free and you will not need multiple visits to the dentist. You will not even be scared to take over the procedure.

3 stages of procedure
Your initial consultation paves the way for a smooth rapport between you and your Dentist. It is a must to develop confidence to go ahead with the tooth extraction.
Usually, a tooth extraction is a completely painless procedure. You’re completely numb, so there’s no pain during the procedure, only some pressure is felt. Contrary to popular belief dentists do not actually “pull teeth.” The tooth is gently nudged with pressure, the ligaments holding the tooth in place give up and the tooth comes out automatically.
Since the bone supporting upper wisdom teeth is soft, there’s generally minimal discomfort associated with an upper wisdom tooth extraction. The bone supporting lower wisdom teeth is very dense and it is common for people to experience some pain and discomfort for a day or two following lower wisdom tooth extraction. Pain medications will be provided to alleviate some of the discomfort associated with a tooth extraction.
Most people have minimal discomfort following the procedure. Every person is unique, therefore everyone responds differently to a tooth extraction. The treatment plan is customised for every patient.
Possible Consequences / Precautions
Your gum may bleed for a few minutes after the procedure. Your dentist will give you a piece of soft padding to bite on to stop the bleeding. You’ll be able go home once the bleeding has stopped.
You may have stitches, depending on which tooth was removed and why. The stitches will dissolve by themselves and won’t need removing. It’s important to brush these carefully for three to four days after your surgery to stop food getting trapped. But be careful when brushing so that you don’t dislodge any newly-formed blood clots that may have formed over your empty tooth socket.
AMS recommendation for best results
Before you go home, your dentist or surgeon will give you advice about looking after your teeth and gums. They may recommend painkillers and an antibacterial mouthwash. You may be prescribed some antibiotics, to reduce your chances of developing an infection. You don’t always need a follow-up appointment after you’ve had a tooth removed. But if you had a complicated procedure, you may also be given a date for a follow-up appointment. During this appointment, your dentist or surgeon will check that your mouth is healing well.
Hard foods are best avoided.
The gums will heal in just a few weeks to cover the extraction socket. There may be an unusual sensation in the beginning, but that sensation goes away in just a few days.
Duration of the procedure depends on many factors but could generally take just a few minutes or a maximum one hour.

FAQs For Painless Wisdom Tooth Extraction (Removal)
- WHEN SHOULD A TOOTH EXTRACTION BE AN OPTION?
A dentist or an orthodontist may opt to pull a tooth for many reasons. The tooth may be so hopelessly damaged from tooth decay that it cannot be saved even with root canal therapy. It may be causing crowding or malocclusion (bad bite) which may prevent a new tooth from breaking through. Or, the tooth may be loose as a result of gum disease or even from an accident.
- HOW IS A TOOTH EXTRACTION DONE?
In a simple tooth extraction, a dentist takes hold of the tooth with forceps and rocks it back and forth to loosen it from the bone. Removal of the overlying gum might be necessary if a tooth is not quite through the gum. After a tooth extraction, a blood clot forms where a tooth had once been. It is important not to dislodge the blood clot because it aids in healing. Disturbing the clot can result in a dry socket — a painful condition that may or may not heal by itself. Some swelling and light bleeding may occur over the next 24 hours.
- WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF TOOTH EXTRACTION?
A missing tooth leaves a large enough gap for other teeth to shift. You may also have difficulty chewing and may experience a problem with malocclusion (bad bite). These difficulties can be alleviated with dental implants, fixed bridges or dentures.
- What is the POSTOPERATIVE CARE after tooth extraction?
- Bite firmly on the cotton wool pack provided for 10-20 minutes·
- If bleeding reoccurs later, use a spare cotton pack or roll up a handkerchief and bite hard in the area of the extraction. Sit down quietly and wait for bleeding to stop·
- Avoid alcohol, smoking and physical exercise for 24 hours as this may increase the chances of infection or more bleeding·
- Avoid rinsing the area for 24 hours as this may lead to loss of the blood clot from the tooth socket (which aids healing) and increases the risk of infection·
- 24 hours after the extraction, rinse your mouth with warm salt water up to four times a day, for a week. This again will reduce the chances of infection·
- If you require painkillers e.g. ibuprofen, paracetamol, you may find if you take them before the aesthetic wears off, the symptoms will be less severe·
