Dental Practice In The Heart Of Lisburn
Our dentists will do all they can to ensure your teeth are healthy, strong and last a lifetime, but occasionally it becomes necessary to remove a natural tooth, either to preserve the health of the surrounding teeth or to remove an unhealthy tooth.
If your tooth is decayed or damaged and cannot be repaired with a filling or crown, your dentist may decide to remove (extract) the tooth as a last resort.
Frequently Asked Questions
Our highly trained team of dental professionals always ensure you are fully numb around the area where the tooth is being removed before starting the procedure. If at any point you feel any discomfort, we tend to immediately stop and reassess, sometimes we may just have to give slightly more anaesthetic!
This is certainly an option which you will have to be referred to hospital to have the procedure carried out under ‘General anaesthetic’. Although we find majority of our patients can happily manage to have the procedure carried out comfortably with sedation or even just a simple local anaesthetic.
