Benefit from the expertise and dedication of our highly skilled principal dentist Dr. Ali Kamran (GDC No 71662), who has over 24 years extensive cosmetic dentistry experience and has helped perform extractions for hundreds of patients in Reading and Berkshire.
What is an extraction?
A tooth which is very decayed or damaged or loose because of gum disease, may have to be extracted (taken out of your mouth).
Wisdom teeth sometimes have to be extracted if they have come through at an awkward angle and are causing problems.
Teeth are sometimes taken out from children’s mouths to help other teeth grow straight, for orthodontic treatment.
What will my dentist do?
Some teeth are easier to take than others. A local anaesthetic will be used to numb the tooth before it is extracted, this is the best treatment for most patients.
In some cases, for children or nervous patient or where a tooth might prove difficulty to remove, a general anaesthetic may be considered. If a general anaesthetic is needed, you will have to be referred to hospital (you will normally be able to go home the same day).
You may need a day or so off work to recover, depending on how difficult the extraction was and whether general anaesthetic was used.
The dentist will give you a pad gauze to bite on, to stop any bleeding.
The dentist will give you advice on:
- How to look after the space where the tooth was while it is healing.
- How to use painkiller so you are not in any discomfort when the anaesthetic wears off.
- How to contract the practice if there are any problems.

Tooth extraction reviews via Google my Business
“Hadn’t been to a dentist for a while, so a little worried. A friend recommended Markham Associates. Needed fillings and an extraction.
Put at ease from the start: procedures fully explained, x-ray results shown, treatment options given and no pressure. COVID rules in place. Pleased with outcome.”
“An outstanding dental practice, providing an excellent level of care, advice, support and expertise. The whole team is highly professional with excellent interpersonal skills…warmly welcomed by this nervous patient! Dr Kamran always explains proposed treatment and options in full.
Yesterday’s painless filling of a deteriorating tooth, which required work very close to the nerve, was particularly remarkable and perhaps even more so when taking into account the level of PPE required.
I felt completely safe at all times. Many thanks Dr. Kamran and team.”
“Today, I just finished my dental treatment – I had three implants and a filling done. Dr Kamran was very efficient and skilled, my teeth look amazing! The fact that I don’t need to use my old denture anymore is so much more convenient and I cannot wait to eat a pizza in a restaurant stress-free!
They are genuinely friendly and I am grateful that they did not try to sell. They spent time during the consultation to make me aware of all my treatment options and were very reassuring during the process.
I recommend MA’s warmly.”
