Tooth Extractions in Queens Park, London - The Doctor's Method BOOK CONSULTATION
Dr Kian


Are you looking to get tooth extractions in Queens Park? Our adult teeth are designed to last a lifetime – but ironically, life can get in the way. Whether the cause is trauma, decay, infection or crowding problems, pulling teeth is sometimes the best option for the health and hygiene of your mouth, and could actually improve the appearance of your smile.

Some patients require extraction when turning to orthodontic treatment, in order to properly align the teeth. Others may have decay so severe that not even root canal treatment will save the tooth, and in cases of gum disease, the tissues and bone that support the tooth may be too weak anyway.

Whatever the reason, tooth extractions can be the best treatment for you, or may be essential. Whether you have a problem tooth you know needs extracting, or extraction has been recommended to you, our specialist team can help.



Here at The Doctor’s Method, tooth extractions are commonly carried out amongst our patients. While it might seem like a frightening prospect, it can go a long way in helping preserve your oral health, as well as your smile. Here’s what to expect from your treatment. 

  • First, we’ll take a look at your tooth and assess whether further treatment is required.
  • A local anaesthetic is then given to numb the area. It’s not usual for the patient to be sedated during this time, but this can be offered if desired. The tooth is then removed. Occasionally, and in cases where the tooth is impacted, it may need to be removed in segments or ‘rocked’ gently to ease it out of position. A gauze is then used to ‘plug’ the gap, and stitches may be required to aid with healing.
  • If further treatment is required which can’t be carried out at the time, we’ll book you in for a follow-up appointment.

  • How long does treatment take?

    For single tooth extraction, this can typicallybe carried out within an hour. In cases where several teeth are being removed, your appointment may take longer.

  • Does treatment hurt?

    Tooth extractions are performed under anaesthetic. You may feel movement and pressure, but shouldn’t feel pain. To keep pain and complications to a minimum following treatment:

    • Take painkillers, such as paracetamol, as necessary.
    • Keep an eye on the gauze pad (dressing) used and ensure you change it as directed.
    • Ease swelling and soothe pain by applying a cold compress to the cheek/jaw area.
    • You will require some recovery time (for instance, taking the afternoon off work) and it may not be advisable to drive straightaway.
    • Ensure you brush and floss as normal, but avoid this in and around the treated area. A saltwater rinse can also help keep the site clean.
    • Avoid smoking, which can inhibit healing, and try to eat soft foods while healing. 
  • What are the risks and side-effects?

    There are some complications which can occur following a tooth extraction. If you experience any of these, you should contact our practice as soon as possible.

    • Nausea, vomiting or fever
    • Infection
    • Redness, bleeding and swelling that won’t settle
    • Discharge in the area
    • Chest pain/cough
  • I now have a gap in my teeth. What treatment can I try?

    Those with gaps caused by missing or extracted teeth may be suitable for dental implants. This can be discussed with you at consultation stage.

  • Why choose you?

    All our treatments are provided by a fully-trained, skilled and experienced dental professional. With bespoke care, we can ensure the best outcome and right choice for you.
