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.
