Why You Might Need Teeth Extracted

There are many reasons that a tooth extraction might be necessary. These include

  • A retained baby tooth that needs to come out
  • Before starting orthodontic treatment
  • A severely broken tooth
  • Wisdom teeth

You may or may not have pain that relates to the tooth in question. If we determine that you have a damaged tooth that can’t be saved, we’ll remove it, then talk about options for tooth replacement.

We also perform wisdom teeth extractions in-house. Your wisdom teeth may not sit right in the mouth and are impacted or come through but don’t fit in your mouth properly. As a result, you may experience bite issues or rubbing on your teeth and gums.


There are three options when it comes to relieving your anxiety:

  • Oral sedation

  • IV sedation

  • General anaesthetic


Oral sedation requires coordinating with your GP to discuss whether you’re a good candidate for oral sedation, which will make you feel calm. The next option is to arrange for an anaesthetist to come to our clinic and do intravenous sedation, also called twilight sedation. If your prefer to be fully unconscious during your treatment, general anaesthetic is an option for you. You’ll be in hospital with our oral surgeon who is licensed to work out of the hospital and have your treatment completed there.

Following a normal extraction, we typically suggest you take the rest of the day off work so you can rest easy and make sure you’re feeling okay and your healing is well underway. You can usually return to the next day and manage any discomfort with over-the-counter painkillers. If you have multiple teeth extracted or your wisdom teeth have been removed, a couple of days off work is best. We can arrange a medical certificate for you with the proper amount of time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I want to talk about sedation options?

All you have to do is give us a call or speak with your dentist at your initial examination. If we believe you need an extraction, we’ll let you know right away. Then, you can discuss the various sedation options that we offer. You and your dentist will work together to determine which is most appropriate for you.

I want to have orthodontic treatment done but need an extraction. Can you do that in your clinic?

Yes. One of the most common reasons to have a tooth extracted is before embarking on orthodontic treatment. We can perform the extraction in-house before you begin your orthodontics.

I need a more complex wisdom teeth removal. Can you help me?

Yes. We can complete even complex cases in-house when it comes to the removal of wisdom teeth. We have a dentist on staff who is particularly skilled in doing so and will be happy to schedule your appointment with him.
