A tooth extraction involves the complete removal of a tooth from your mouth. We will always try to avoid tooth extractions as it is best to keep all of your natural teeth. However, sometimes it cannot be avoided.
There are several reasons why your dentist may recommend tooth extraction, such as:
In situations where a tooth is beyond saving, tooth extraction may be recommended.
If you have a missing tooth, a dental implant can be a great option for restoring your smile.
As an alternative option to dentures, crowns and bridges, implants involve fitting a piece of titanium into the root space where your tooth once was, to become the anchor upon which your dentist can fit a new replacement tooth. Put simply, a dental implant is an artificial tooth root.
Once fitted, your dental implant can last for years, providing proper dental hygiene is maintained. What’s more, they can be used to replace just one tooth, or even a whole set!

A few years ago, I had a lot of problems with my teeth. I was recommended Field House Dental Practice by a friend because they paid such good attention to her teeth, which had been in the same bad shape as mine were then. Moving to the practice was the best thing I ever did. Now my teeth are in really good condition and are cared for regularly. Recently I had a tooth fall out due to old problems (these things happen) and what excellent job they did on replacing it! The implant is fantastic and you wouldn't know it wasn't my own. Also, having spent years as a child having more fillings than I cared for, I used to be scared of going to the dentist, but the dentists - Chris and Janet Ibbot - both clearly explain what...
During a routine check-up, Chris informed me that two adjacent back teeth were showing signs of the old mercury amalgam fillings leaking into the teeth. He explained the consequences of this if left untreated, and recommended ceramic onlays as the most suitable way of saving the teeth from further deterioration and generally giving them a new lease of life. He also clearly explained the procedure including any possible snags as well as the cost, all of which I went away to consider for a few days before deciding to go ahead and booking the two quite lengthy appointments. The first to drill out the old fillings, generally prepare for the onlays and fit temporary fillings, and the second about a fortnight later to fit the onlays that had been made in a dental laboratory. I have been very satisfied with the...
As an established patient of Field House Dental Practice for many years, I have always been impressed by the service level. Since Chris and Janet took over however, the Practice has, in my view, gone further from strength to strength. Facilities are being upgraded, Support Staff are most professional but still very friendly and the clinical delivery is increasingly impressive. Quite apart from doing her job of cleaning my teeth, Victoria manages to be delightfully motivational concerning 'self-help' in between check-ups. I recently had to undergo a deep filling courtesy of Chris, which was the least unpleasant, completely pain and discomfort free, dental experience I have ever had. Underpinning this was a level of communication in language I could understand, delivered with friendly yet professional re-assurance, that I have not previously experienced in my 60 odd years of visiting dentists....
