tooth extraction

What is tooth extraction?

Tooth extraction is a very common dental procedure that involves the gentle and careful removal of a tooth . This might be necessary for various reasons, including severe tooth decay, infection, crowding, or trauma to a tooth. 

Types of tooth extractions

There are two main types of tooth extractions:

Simple extraction – This procedure is performed on a tooth that is visible in the mouth and usually done under local anaesthesia. They’re straight forward and take a couple of minutes.

Surgical extraction – This is a slightly more complex procedure performed when the tooth is not easily accessible. It could be due to a tooth that has broken off at the gum line or has not fully erupted, such as wisdom teeth. Surgical extractions need a more careful and comprehensive approach and take longer than simple extractions.

At Smile Stories, we specialise in both simple and surgical extractions. Our team is equipped with the skills and technology to handle even the most complex cases.

Why would you need a tooth extraction?

There are several reasons why a tooth extraction might be needed or preferred over other dental treatments, including:

Severe tooth decay or damage – When a tooth is too damaged to be repaired with a filling or crown.

Infection –  To prevent the spread of infection from a severely decayed or damaged tooth.

Overcrowding – To make space for orthodontic treatment or to prevent overcrowding of teeth in the mouth.

Tooth extraction Bournemouth – What to expect

Are you wondering what actually happens during a tooth extraction? Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you feel prepared – and trust us, it’s not as daunting as you may think!

Initial consultation – We begin with an initial consultation where our dentist will examine your mouth, take X-rays, and discuss your dental history. We’ll determine if a tooth extraction is necessary, explain the procedure in detail, addressing any questions or concerns you may have. We’ll also discuss any alternative options which may be better suited to you. 

The tooth removal – On the day of the extraction, we’ll make sure you’re comfortable and relaxed. For simple extractions, we’ll administer local anaesthesia to numb the area around the tooth. For complex removal you have the option of sedation. Once you’re nice and numb we’ll carefully remove the tooth. You’ll feel mild pushing and pulling but that’s it. 

Follow up & aftercare  – You’ll receive detailed post-extraction care instructions to ensure that you heal in the best way possible and prevent unlikely issues. 

What are the benefits of tooth extractions?

Tooth extractions are often seen as a last resort, but we believe removing a damaged tooth can offer many benefits including:


Instant pain relief – Extracting a damaged tooth removes the source of pain and infection, which relieves pain immediately. 


Prevents further damage – Tooth extractions stops the spread of decay or infection to neighbouring teeth, protecting the rest of your healthy teeth and minimises the chances of more issues from cropping up further down the line. 


Improves your overall oral health – Removing damaged or infected teeth will create a healthier environment for the remaining teeth.


Provides more space for orthodontic treatment – Removing teeth that are damaged or not needed in an overcrowded mouth makes space for proper alignment of teeth with orthodontic treatment like braces or Invisalign

Tooth extraction FAQs

Our dental clinic is based on Winton highstreet, but we offer private tooth extraction treatment to the whole of Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch and Dorset. We’re always happy to offer an initial telephone or video call consultation to better understand your concerns before you come and visit us.

How much does a tooth extraction cost?

The cost for a tooth extraction will vary depending on the complexity of the extraction, but in general, it can range from £295 – £550 from simple careful removal to complex wisdom tooth removal. A full breakdown of costs will be explained before any treatment is completed, and we have payment options available to help spread the cost. 

How long does it take to recover from a tooth extraction?

Recovery time varies depending on the complexity of the extraction, but most patients recover within a few days to a week. Following post-operative care instructions is key for a smooth recovery, and we’ll provide you with lots of post-care advice. 

Are tooth extractions painful?

During the tooth extraction procedure, local anaesthesia or sedation will be used to ensure you’re comfortable and pain-free. Some discomfort is normal after the anaesthesia wears off, but it can be managed at home with some mild pain relief medication. 

How do I know if I need a tooth extraction?

A dentist will advise if you need a tooth extraction, but generally, symptoms such as severe tooth pain, infection, crowding, or damage might indicate the need for an extraction. Our dentists will perform a thorough examination and discuss your treatment options with you.
