Reasons You Might Need A Tooth Extraction

While tooth extraction is a last resort at our practice, one of our dentists might need to pull a tooth for several reasons.

Removing a heavily damaged or infected tooth might be better for your oral health. Often when a tooth’s pulp is infected, it can cause significant pain for patients, and if the prescribed treatment of a root canal fails to work, we can either try a re-root canal or remove the tooth altogether.

On top of this, if you also suffer from periodontal (gum) disease, which has caused the teeth to loosen, removing and replacing them with devices like dental implants might be necessary.

Another common reason for tooth extraction is when a mouth is overcrowded, causing teeth to become crooked, causing the patient’s oral health to suffer. Before we move forward with brace correction treatments, for example, it might be necessary to create additional room in the mouth for teeth to fall into neater, natural positions.

How Long Does It Take To Recover From Extracted Tooth?

The answer depends on the complexity of your case and the reason why you need your tooth removed. However, most people feel back to normal within just a few days, with some forgetting about the procedure the next day.

We always advise patients to return to their normal activities within 48 to 72 hours, although it takes several weeks for the jawbone to heal completely.

That’s why especially with dental implants, we have to allow for a period of healing and cannot always place them immediately for missing teeth.Some side effects are expected following an extraction, including bleeding, swelling and slight discomfort.

However, as the procedure is performed under local anaesthetic, you will be permitted to drive home if that’s how you’ve chosen to arrive at our practice. If you choose Maida Smiles in Maida Vale as your dentist, we will detail instructions on managing your healing without fuss successfully.

What NOT To Do After A Tooth Extraction

If our London dentists in W9 recommend a tooth extraction to benefit your oral health, we’ll run through extraction recovery tips to help you speed up and heal.

For example, by avoiding a few simple things in the first few days of recovery, you can expect a more favourable recovery experience. We’ve listed them below:

  • DO NOT touch the sutures (try and avoid your tongue exploring this new empty area)
  • DO NOT smoke or drink alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours following the procedure.
  • DO NOT eat crunchy or hard foods; instead, opt for softer foods like yoghurts or pasta that are easy to chew.
  • DO NOT drink through a straw, as this can create suction that dislodges the blood clot.
  • DO NOT over-exert – this is your time to take it easy and allow your body to use the energy to heal the extraction site.

I've been receiving orthodontic treatment for about a year now with Dr. Ines and she's a wonderful mixture of highly skilled and professional, very thorough, and gentle in her approach. She is also super personable and I always look forward to my monthly appointments with her. She's made such a big improvement to my teeth and I'm very happy with my treatment so far -- I highly recommend Dr. Ines. I've also had other treatments with Maida Smiles and always had a great experience, especially with my wisdom teeth removal (by Dr. Pedro) that went very smoothly without any issues. The team's treatment coordinator/dentist nurse Cinthia is also always super kind and helpful if you have any questions or want to understand treatments.

I had the lovely Dr Shankar for a 4 month Invisalign treatment. I mainly had overcrowding that needed sorting out after having had braces as a teenager and not wearing my retainer. Dr Shankar was delightful and has a lovely energy about him that made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. He explained processes well and also gave good advice to help me make informed decisions. I would highly highly recommend him to anyone in the Maida Vale area!

I had 2 wisdom teeth (on the same side) removed by Dr Pedro. I had a much better experience than I expected. One month later, I have completely recovered without any complications. Absolutely recommend!

I was recommended to start my treatment at the clinic and I couldn't be more pleased. It has been 6 months since I put my braces on and I am being followed by Dr. Ines and Dr. Cíntia. I can already see great changes and can't wait for the final result. Excellent professionals. The whole environment is very calm which makes you comfortable. 100% recommend Maida Smiles Clinic.

Following a friend’s recommendation, I brought my eldest daughter to Dr Ines do Carmo for orthodontic treatment. Ines has been brilliant throughout the treatment; she is incredibly passionate about her work and this is reflected in her skilled perfectionism and the amazing results she achieves for her patients. From the start, Ines’ warm and friendly manner succeeded in putting my apprehensive daughter at ease. She was also forthcoming and thorough in her explanations of the treatment, and happy to share her extensive knowledge. My daughter now has an even lovelier smile thanks to Ines. I highly recommend her and will be bringing my younger children to her for their orthodontic treatment.

It was my first time in the clinic and I had a great experience. The staff is very friendly. Samantha was very helpful with booking the appointment and fast replied to my messages. I had an appointment with Dr. Ines do Carmo. She is lovely. She explained all the treatment and the best option for my case. Cintia was helping Dr. Ines with the appointment. Cintia is very friendly. Dr. Ines and Cintia took care of me and made me feel welcome during the consultation. I will continue my treatment in the clinic. I recommend the clinic and especially Dr. Ines do Carmo.

It is my good fortune to have found Dra inês at Maida Smiles Clinic and to have her as my orthodontist. My complex orthodontic treatment, as an adult, defies all laws of physics, but Dra Inês has the most amazing professional expertise and compassion to help and change lives, and she is helping me massively. In each consultation, Dra Inês moves one-step forward to improve my bite, my oral health in general and my smile! I will be forever grateful to Dra Inês for her outstanding care, professionalism and support she provides in each visit, in such a caring and friendly way. I warmly recommend Dra Inês and Maida Smiles Clinic to anyone who os considering orthodontics.

We were on a short trip to London and my wife's implant got loose. We called Maida Smiles and they immediately saw her. They kindly sorted the issue out and my wife was extremely satisfied with the kind, friendly and professional service. Thanks Dr Pedro.

I can’t thank enough Dr Pedro Gutierres and Maida Smiles’ team for guiding me through a multiple teeth extraction operation I had at the clinic recently. I’m a very anxious patient and everyone at Maida Smiles went above and beyond to accommodate my questions, asks and concerns. The operation itself was painless and positively uneventful, healing was quick and after-care second to none. Never thought I’d say this to myself but I’m looking forward to my next dentist appointment at Maida Smiles.
