Tooth Extractions in Southend, Essex

When a tooth has been damaged or is showing signs of decay, the problem may be able to be resolved with a filling or dental crown procedure amongst other treatment options. However, in some cases, there may be too much damage for the tooth to be repaired and the best option becomes an extraction.

An extraction is when a tooth needs to be completely removed from its socket in the bone. Teeth that are damaged beyond repair may need to be sacrificed for the rest of your mouth to remain healthy.

We recommend you book a consultation with us so that we can assess the condition of your teeth. If necessary, we will explain why an extraction is required and the ways that we can restore your smile once the gums have healed.

All of our dental treatments are guaranteed for 12 months. Read our FAQs about tooth extractions for a better understanding of the procedure.

What are the benefits of tooth extractions?

Damaged teeth can be very painful. Though we try our best to avoid extracting teeth, there are cases where it can be your best option. Sometimes a patient may choose an extraction in preference to more complex and costly alternatives. Once the damaged tooth has been removed and the mouth has healed, we can look at restoring your smile.

What should I do after an extraction?

You will need to rest and avoid strenuous exercise, keeping your head raised to avoid bleeding. Smoking can cause your blood pressure to rise, which may lead to more bleeding, so it is important to avoid smoking altogether.

What to take if I am in pain?

You can expect some tenderness for the following few days after treatment. Pain relief medication is normally enough to manage any discomfort, but you should avoid aspirin after an extraction.

How much does it cost?

Please book a consultation with us so that we can assess your teeth. Once we have discussed a treatment plan for you, we will be able to give you a quote.
