Tooth Extraction

A tooth extraction is a common dental procedure in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and for preparation of orthodontic treatment.



The most common causes for tooth extraction or tooth removal are:

  • Extensive tooth decay, when the tooth cannot be restored
  • Severe advanced gum disease
  • Fractured teeth due to trauma
  • In preparation of orthodontic treatment
  • Third molars/wisdom teeth due to lack of space
  • For cosmetic reasons
  • If required, prior to radiation treatment


Most tooth extractions can be done under local anesthesia. After the procedure wet gauze and pressure is used to control bleeding. For the next 24 hours limit physical activity, consume soft foods like ice cream, pudding, yoghurt, milkshakes and room temperature clear soups. Take the prescribed medications and brush gently around the healing site.  Depending on the reason for removal of the tooth, the area can be restored by placing dental implants, dental bridges or dentures.
