Dental Extractions

    Tooth extraction refers to the complete removal of a tooth from the mouth. The need for an extraction usually arises when a tooth is severely decayed or beyond repair. Sometimes, teeth may be extracted for other reasons, such as when they are impacted or when space must be created for orthodontic treatment, like braces.

    Types of extractions

    • Non-surgical
      • This involves the removal of teeth that are visible in the mouth. A local anesthetic will first be administered, before using a dental forceps to loosen the tooth and finally to remove it.
    • Surgical
      • This involves the removal of teeth that cannot be easily accessed. Your doctor may recommend this if your tooth is severely broken or if it is impacted (stuck) behind bone or another tooth.


    Both types of extractions can be done at any of our dental clinics in Singapore.

    What can I expect when I have my tooth extracted?

    Depending on the complexity of the extraction, the duration varies between 15 and 60 minutes. A local anaesthetic will be given so that the tooth and surrounding area will be numbed. With their experience and care, our dentists will do all they can to give you as quick and painless an experience as possible.

    The tooth will be removed with extraction forceps. If a surgery is required, you will be informed before we begin the procedure. In such a case, an incision will be made on your gums to gain better access to the tooth

    After the extraction, you will be given a piece of gauze to bite on until the bleeding stops. Your dentist will give you more advice on what you can do after the extraction for the socket to heal nicely.
