In a perfect world, we’d all keep our teeth for life but sometimes, an extraction is inevitable due to one of the following reasons:

  • Damage or injury
  • Advanced tooth decay
  • Infection
  • It’s become impacted
  • Advanced gum disease

When one of your teeth can’t be saved or is causing major disruption or damage to your other teeth, unfortunately, it will need to be removed. You’ll be thankful to know that surgical extractions are often a simple procedure that can be completed in the dental surgery while you’re under a local anaesthetic.

Wisdom teeth are the most common culprits when it comes to extractions. The simple reason behind this is that if your wisdom teeth erupt, they’ll cause problems that will end up in pain and discomfort for you.

Unfortunately, wisdom teeth can be complicated when it comes to removing them unlike other teeth. If a case is extremely complex, your dentist may let you know it’s in your best interest to have them removed under a general anaesthetic. The bad news here is that treatment will need to be administered in a hospital with an anaesthetist present.
