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!

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....
Dear Chris, I would like to say my experience with you as my dentist has been a very positive one. You took time to explain to me exactly what you were doing and why. The procedures never felt rushed and I felt completely at ease. I would say to anyone considering treatment with you to go ahead and they will not be disappointed. In actual fact, you have given me my confidence back, for which I thank you. My treatment was excellent and I received many positive comments. It’s great to smile and be proud of my teeth. You only have one set of teeth and I believe any money and time spent is a good investment, even though my mum paid for them. Thank you for your patience, kindness and understanding ways towards a very anxious dental patient.
I had been wanting to straighten my teeth for a good few years after my perfectly straight teeth began shifting in my mid-twenties, it had come to a point where my top front teeth had become quite crooked. I wanted a treatment that would not take too long and since I only wanted my front 4-6 teeth straightened I set my sights on the Inman aligner after some research. Thankfully the Inman aligner was a suitable option, Dr Chris explained its limitations, especially on rotated teeth and how it would work and roughly how long it could take. I was very happy with the information given and after a few months treatment with the Inman aligner (a visit to the dentist every 2 to 3 weeks during treatment) and a one month treatment at the end with a clear aligner...
Dear Janet, Just a short note to thank you for all your help and care over the last four years, since I moved to Wadhurst. You have combined a thoroughly reassuring professional approach with a relaxed and friendly demeanour. I have been particularly pleased with the way you have managed my rather poor teeth. There has been no drama over the sometimes difficult repair work and while I would have preferred not to have had the procedures, I am certain my teeth are now in far better condition that a few years back. I would strongly recommend your care to potential patients who are thinking of joining your practice. Professional, skilled and friendly sum it up.
