Tooth Extractions in Walsall

Emergency wisdom teeth removal & molar extractions  

Woman requires an emergency dentist as she needs a tooth extraction

Cheslyn Hay Dental Practice provides tooth extraction services when the removal of one or more teeth is required. Our dentist will assess your teeth’s health and condition to determine if a tooth extraction is the best or only option. 

Although a common procedure, tooth extraction is the last resort when a tooth cannot be saved. Our dentists are experienced in molar extraction, wisdom teeth removal, and impacted tooth extraction. You may require tooth removal if there is severe tooth decay, impaction of wisdom teeth, extra teeth, or a tooth injury. 

Our highly-trained team will eliminate pain and alleviate the discomfort you may be experiencing. We empathise with and have a great deal of experience in comforting anxious or nervous patients. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have a damaged or broken tooth that is causing painful symptoms. 

Our dental team will give you a local anaesthetic to numb the area so that you do not feel any pain. Our dentist will gently remove the tooth, and you will only experience a feeling of slight pressure as the tooth is extracted. Depending on your oral health, we might recommend dentures or dental implants to replace your missing tooth, improve function and comfort, and maintain your happy and friendly smile.

We offer same-day dental emergency appointments for emergency tooth removal for registered and non-registered patients. If you have a broken, cracked, or painful tooth following an accident or from other causes, we are here to help.

Why do i need a tooth extraction?

Your dentist may recommend a tooth extraction for various reasons including;

You might also need a same-day emergency appointment and emergency tooth removal when an injury results in painful or cracked teeth. If you need an emergency tooth extraction, contact Cheslyn Hay straight away.

Is removing the tooth the only option?

Your dentist may recommend a tooth extraction for various reasons but only when this is the best or only option. Tooth extraction is still reasonably common in dental practices, but dentists only carry out dental removal when the tooth cannot be saved.

If the tooth hurts, then you will likely be keen to have it removed to alleviate discomfort and eliminate pain. Understandably, you may feel nervous or anxious, but the treatment only takes a few minutes, and we can reassure you that the experience is not painful.

What's involved in a tooth extraction?

There are two types of extractions

  • A standard extraction
  • A surgical extraction

For a standard extraction, the dentist will administer a local anesthetic into the area before using an elevator to loosen the tooth. Once the tooth is loose the dentist will remove it using forceps.

A surgical extraction is not as straightforward.  This requires an incision into the gums to gain access to the affected tooth. Although this can be done using a local anesthetic, there are some patients who prefer extraction under sedation.

Aftercare for extractions

The first 24 hours following an extraction it is best to;

Avoid strenuous activity

Avoid using mouthwash 

Avoid the area when eating hot or cold food for 24 hrs (this can be done by using the other side of your mouth)

After 24 hours 

Rinse your mouth with a mixture of one teaspoon of salt in a glass of water, 3-4 times per day

Take care when brushing your teeth to avoid bleeding.

Avoid smoking, as this slows down the healing process.

If you have any issues following an extraction contact an emergency dentist immediately.

"I came to your surgery after not visiting a dentist for 15 years due to my dental phobia. The surgery had a lovely welcoming feel with no horrible antiseptic smell and the staff were absolutely brilliant.

I can not believe that I have made a further appointment to start my treatment and now feel less anxious about it. Thank you, you don’t know the difference you have made."
