Oral Surgery

There will sometimes be occurrences whereby Oral Surgery maybe necessary.

Extractions are usually necessary for:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • A broken tooth beyond repair
  • Trauma
  • An abscess
  • Impacted wisdom teeth (repeated infection)
  • Gum disease
  • Overcrowding (orthodontics)

After examination and consideration, if you are advised that your tooth is beyond repair then a tooth extraction maybe your only option. Or it may be possible to save your tooth with root canal treatment and a crown but you would rather have the simplest option.

Dr Vijay Bhargava, who specialises in Dental Implants and Oral Surgery will first explain the process and make you feel confident and comfortable you are in safe hands throughout.

Questions & Answers

What happens with a tooth extraction?

After examination, you are likely to require an x-ray to confirm diagnosis and to help view the roots size and shape. At this stage we would ensure you are fully aware of the options available to you, we may have discussed options for saving the tooth but you would rather have it removed anyway, or it may be non-restorable. At this stage we will obtain your consent.


Does having a tooth extracted hurt?

At the start of your appointment, you will have a local anaesthetic, this will numb the area, significantly reducing any feeling of discomfort throughout the procedure. Once the tooth has been extracted you will still feel numb for a couple of hours. Once the numbness has worn off you may feel some discomfort. This can usually be managed with regular pain relief. Before you leave the surgery we will fully explain & provide detailed instructions for your post-operative care.


What is the Cost of Tooth Extraction?

The cost can vary, but it’s usually based on complexity between £165 to £265

We can arrange for sedation, this is charged separately and will be discussed and agreed ahead of booking the appointment.
