Sometimes good things come to an end.

We don’t like taking teeth out.  We will always offer you an alternative if there is a viable one available to us.

However, if we can’t, or if you don’t want to have further treatment, we can remove your teeth.

What should I do after I’ve had an extraction?

We can give you options for replacing missing teeth.  Apart from chewing, you may wish to replace teeth for other reasons:

  • your smile
  • to chew well
  • to support your cheeks and lips so you don’t have a sunken, aged appearance
  • to maintain your bite as remaining teeth have to work harder
  • to prevent teeth near the missing tooth from shifting into the space
  • to prevent teeth opposite the gap from coming up (or down) further (called overeruption)
