Dublin Dentist – Tooth Extraction

At Pembroke Dental Practice in Dublin 4 we consider tooth extraction to be a last resort, and do everything to maintain the lifespan of your natural teeth. However, sometimes, when the prognosis is too poor, a tooth cannot be saved.

The most common reasons for needing an tooth extraction are:

Wisdom tooth extraction and treatment

If there isn’t enough space for wisdom teeth to grow at the back of your mouth, they can become impacted, causing pain, swelling and/or infection, so may need to be removed. Find out more about our fees for wisdom tooth removal here.

Tooth Overcrowding

Sometimes dentists extract teeth to prepare the mouth for orthodontics. The goal of orthodontics is to properly align the teeth, which may not be possible if your teeth are too big for your mouth. Likewise, if a tooth can’t break through the gum, because there’s no room in the mouth for it, we may recommend extraction.

Tooth Infection Advice and Treatment

If tooth decay or damage extends to the pulp – the centre of the tooth containing nerves and blood vessels – bacteria in the mouth can enter the pulp, leading to infection. If infection is so severe that antibiotics do not cure it, extraction may be needed to prevent the spread of infection.

At our Dublin dentist practice in Ballsbridge our dentist offers a free consultation talk you through the options for a permanent replacement, such as an implant.
