Safe, comfortable, pain-free tooth extractions

Dental extractions are recommended as a last resort, when your original tooth cannot be repaired. This could be as a result of trauma, disease, or crowding.  Our dentists will explain all options available to you, along with any risks and relative advantages before recommending an extraction.

Benefits of Extractions

  • Alleviate pain and discomfort
  • Remove tooth infection
  • Prevent further dental problems
  • Regain health in the surrounding tooth and gum area
  • Alleviate overcrowding
  • Alleviate wisdom tooth problems

Our treatment process

1. Your Consultation

We’ll examine the tooth that needs to be removed and discuss any concerns or questions you may have. We’ll also explain the procedure in detail, including the potential risks and benefits.

2. Your Treatment

Once the anesthesia has taken effect, the dentist will gently loosen and remove the tooth from its socket. In some cases, a small incision may be made to access the tooth if it is impacted or difficult to remove.

3. Aftercare

You’ll be advised to gently rinse your mouth with warm saltwater several times a day to keep the extraction site clean and prevent infection. We’ll also advise you to avoid smoking. Pain medications and antibiotics may be prescribed to manage any discomfort or infection.


  • During a tooth extraction procedure, our dentist will first examine the tooth and surrounding area to determine the best approach for extraction. Local anesthesia may be administered to numb the area and our Enjoyable Dentistry Technique™ will help you feel more comfortable during the procedure. Once the area is numbed, the tooth will be loosened, and then removed. After the tooth is extracted, we’ll provide instructions on how to care for the extraction site and manage any discomfort or swelling that may occur.

  • Our extractions should not be painful at all, because we take pain relief very seriously. The Enjoyable Dentistry Technique™, created by our very own Dr Bashar, is a pioneering method of treatment that makes dentistry enjoyable for all patients, even those who are nervous, anxious or phobic.  It uses a combination of hypnosis and sedation to calm and soothe you.  It is available to all patients who attend appointments at our practices, without additional charge.

  • Here are a few common scenarios that may make tooth extraction necessary:

    – You have an infected tooth that shows no improvement, even after repeated attempts at clearing the infection.
    – You have a fractured tooth or root that is severely broken down and cannot be restored.
    – You have an impacted wisdom tooth (a wisdom tooth that is coming out at an abnormal angle) that keeps getting infected or is causing decay in the neighbouring tooth
    – You require teeth removed for orthodontic purposes (varying issues, such as overcrowding)

  • You may be advised to stop taking certain medications during the procedure. It is also advisable to eat a light meal before the appointment and avoid smoking or consuming alcohol for at least 24 hours before the procedure. You may want to bring along a friend or family member to provide emotional support, and that’s fine.

  • Yes, missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants, which look just like natural teeth. Additionally, the titanium roots of implants can help you maintain jawbone health.

  • After a tooth extraction, the gum usually takes about 1 to 2 weeks to heal completely. Initially, the gum may be swollen and tender, but this should subside within a few days. It is important to follow proper oral hygiene practices during this time, including gentle brushing and rinsing with saltwater to keep the area clean.

  • We recommend you wait for the extraction site to heal before proceeding with the implant placement. This is because the bone and surrounding tissues need time to recover and stabilise. The healing process typically takes anywhere from 3 to 6 months, depending on various factors such as the individual’s overall health and the complexity of the extraction. During this time, the bone will regenerate, creating a solid foundation for the implant.

Being a very nervous patient I was instantly made to feel comfortable, from the lovely lady on reception. The dentist I was seen by this afternoon, was both friendly ,kind and empathetic to my needs and treatment required. I am happy to say I will be returning to complete all the course of treatment and beyond. Well done excellent customer service. 108887% recommend this practice :)))”
