We are able to complete a range of extractions in our surgery including straight forward wisdom teeth.

A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.

The most common reason for extraction is tooth damage due to breakage or decay. We will happily perform routine tooth removal and more complex surgical removal of decayed teeth. If our dentists feel your extraction is very complex they may offer you the option to have your treatment with the specialist.  Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons  are dentists who have more training and experience and are there fore better qualified to treat the more difficult cases.  Please discuss any concerns you may have with your dentist at your consultation appointment.
