As responsible dentists we prefer to try and save a tooth rather than remove it, however there are occasions when the removal of a tooth is the best option.
We often see overcrowding in children and the removal of one or more teeth provides the gaps necessary to allow orthodontic braces to straighten the remaining teeth.
If your tooth is heavily decayed or damaged and treatments such as crowns are not suitable then the best option may be to remove the tooth.
If the removal of a tooth leads to an unsightly gap then we can discuss tooth replacement options such as bridges, implants or dentures with you.
Does my tooth have to be removed?
The answer depends on why the teeth needs to be removed. We will endeavour to save a tooth before removing it, and there are some great options available to help us do so. However sometimes it’s inevitable that a tooth has to be removed.
Can you replace my extracted tooth?
Yes. We have a range of options including dental bridges and dental implants to replace extracted teeth.

We would like to inform you that due to the COVID-19 outbreak we are currently unable to work as normal following the current government guidelines.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly but we feel it is our responsibility to protect you, our valued patients, our team and our families. We have taken the difficult decision to cancel all routine examinations, treatments and dental hygiene appointments.
Please do not arrive at the practice unannounced.
We will be maintaining a telephone service for advice for patients with a Dental Emergency. Dental emergencies include: Severe pain for over 48 hours, Facial Swelling, Trauma or uncontrolled bleeding.
We understand this is inconvenient and it may mean the treatment timelines are extended. We hope to reconvene normal service once it is safe to do so. One of the team will be in touch or you will receive a text message in due course to postpone if you have an upcoming appointment.
Thank you for all your support during these uncertain times.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon. Best wishes.
