Tooth extraction and replacement

Dentists do all they can to save a decayed or broken tooth but sometimes extraction followed by replacement with an artificial tooth is the only solution.


Tooth extraction

When treatments such as a filling, dental crown or a root canal procedure can’t save a tooth, it will have to come out to avoid complications such as infection spreading to other areas of the body including vital organs – a potentially life-threatening situation.

Extraction entails removal of the tooth from its socket in the jaw bone (dental alveolus). Local anaesthetic is used to numb the area to minimise discomfort, although you may feel a sensation like pressure. Recovery after the procedure generally takes a few days.

Sometimes, surgical extraction with general anaesthetic may be necessary – if a tooth is lodged beneath the gum line and has to be removed piece by piece, for example.


When you might need a tooth extracting

Tooth extraction may be necessary when:

  • Decay causes severe damage
  • Your mouth is overcrowded
  • A tooth stays enclosed in the gum or jaw bone

Besides the obvious symptom of pain, other signs you might need a tooth pulled include:

  • Difficulty eating or talking
  • Jaw pain or stiffness
  • Difficulty opening your mouth
  • Tender gums

Tooth extraction and replacement

Tooth replacement

Tooth replacement

It’s crucial to replace a tooth after extraction. Teeth are an important part of our anatomy, helping to maintain facial structure, enabling us to chew food so it’s digestible, and aiding speech.

The loss of just a single tooth can affect your facial appearance and the function of your mouth.

After tooth extraction, various treatments are available to restore appearance and oral functionality. These include:

  • Dental bridge to fill the gap left by an extracted tooth
  • Dental implant to support a
  • A partial denture to replace one tooth or a few teeth
  • Dentures to replace all the teeth
