Sometimes, a tooth may be too damaged or decayed to be saved by a filling or a crown. In such cases, the best option may be to extract the tooth and replace it with a bridge, implant, or denture. At Borstal Gate Dental Practice, we offer safe and comfortable extraction services to our clients in Tipperary.

We use local anaesthesia to numb the area and ensure minimal pain and discomfort during the procedure. We also provide aftercare instructions and follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process and prevent complications.

How long do gums take to recover from a tooth extraction?
Following the uncomplicated removal of a small tooth with a single root, you can expect the hole to close and heal in approximately seven days. In the case of a simple extraction involving a large tooth with multiple roots, the hole closure typically occurs within three weeks. However, complete healing and the hole's disappearance may extend over several months.
How painful is a tooth extraction?
Individuals who have never undergone a tooth extraction often imagine a prolonged and painful experience. In reality, extractions are quite the opposite. They are quick, and due to a mix of local anaesthetic and the skill of our dentists, extractions at Borstal Gate Dental Practice are almost painless.
