Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extraction is included under General Dental.

Dentists may extract a tooth if they deem it is beyond repair or will cause ongoing issues. ‘Simple’ tooth extractions are performed in-chair at a dental surgery using local anaesthetic. This type of procedure is only performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth. 

You might need Tooth Extraction if you...

  • Are preparing for orthodontic work
  • Have a tooth that is badly infected or causing reinfection
  • Have a tooth that is decayed beyond repair
  • Have an impacted tooth
