Saving your smile

For us, a tooth extraction is the last resort. Yes, it can be an incredibly simple process, but it can also lead to lasting function and cosmetic issues. And no one wants that. So, we do our best to try to keep your smile as it is.

There are times however when the Keys dental team feel that other treatment options aren’t likely to be successful. Whether it’s a planned extraction or an emergency, rest assured you are in good hands.

Back to normal in under an hour

Depending on the complexity of your case, the extraction usually takes between 20 and 60 minutes. Yours might be a simple extraction or a more complex surgical extraction.

Either way our plan remains the same – to get you back to normal and full of smiles, however long it takes!

The FAQs on Dental Extractions

Can a dental extraction affect other teeth?Icons/Icon_ArrowDown_48x48_Grey

After a dental extraction, the teeth surrounding the area of your extraction can tip into the gap. This can affect your normal bite and chewing actions. If that happens, it can lead to jaw issues such as jaw joint, or TMJ.

I have a tooth ache, why won't the dentist take my tooth out today?Icons/Icon_ArrowDown_48x48_Grey

Sometimes a tooth can get so infected extraction isn’t an option. In these instances, we’d usually prescribe an antibiotic to treat the infection first. Within two to three days, it should be safe for you to return to have the tooth removed.
