Tooth Extraction Services in Port Elizabeth with Every Smile Dentistry

Tooth extraction, a common dental procedure, involves the surgical removal of a tooth from its socket. 

At Every Smile Dentistry in Port Elizabeth, we understand that the decision to undergo tooth extraction can be daunting. 

Our experienced dental team is dedicated to providing you with compassionate care and personalized attention throughout the process.

Why Tooth Extraction?

There are several reasons why tooth extraction may be necessary:

  • Tooth Decay: Decay or cavities caused by bacteria can lead to the deterioration of tooth structure, necessitating removal.
  • Trauma or Injury: Accidents or injuries that damage teeth may require extraction to prevent further complications.
  • Infection: Severe infections, such as abscesses, may necessitate extraction to prevent the spread of infection.


Before undergoing a tooth extraction at Every Smile Dentistry, you will undergo thorough preparation, including:

  • Consultation: Schedule a consultation with our dentist to evaluate the affected tooth and discuss your treatment plan.
  • Medical History Review: Our team will review your medical history to ensure your safety during the procedure.
  • Antibiotics: If needed, antibiotics may be prescribed to manage any existing infections.
  • Anesthesia: We offer local anesthesia to numb the area during extraction, ensuring your comfort.
  • Pain Management: Post-operative pain management options will be discussed to ensure a smooth recovery.
  • Post-operative Care Instructions: You’ll receive detailed instructions on caring for the extraction site after the procedure.


At Every Smile Dentistry, we perform various types of tooth extractions, including:

  • Comprehensive Evaluation: Before the extraction, our experienced dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your oral health. This includes assessing the condition of the affected tooth, surrounding tissues, and any potential complications.
  • Anesthesia Administration: Prior to the extraction, local anesthesia will be administered to numb the extraction site and ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. For anxious patients or complex cases, sedation options may also be available to induce relaxation.
  • Incision and Tooth Loosening: Once the area is numb and you’re comfortable, our dentist will begin the extraction process. For simple extractions, the tooth will be gently loosened using specialized instruments. In cases of surgical extraction, an incision may be made to access the tooth or surrounding bone.
  • Extraction Technique: Depending on the tooth’s condition and location, our dentist will employ the most suitable extraction technique. This may involve using forceps to grasp and carefully remove the tooth from its socket. In complex cases, such as impacted teeth, additional tools or techniques may be utilized to ensure complete removal while preserving surrounding structures.
  • Socket Preparation: Following tooth removal, the extraction site will be thoroughly cleaned and inspected to ensure no fragments remain. In some cases, the socket may require further treatment, such as bone grafting or placement of a resorbable membrane, to promote optimal healing and preserve bone structure.
  • Closure and Post-Operative Care: Once the extraction is complete, the socket may be left to heal naturally or closed with sutures, depending on the specific circumstances. Our team will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions, including proper oral hygiene practices and dietary guidelines, to facilitate a smooth recovery process.
  • Follow-Up Appointment: After the procedure, we’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your healing progress and address any concerns or questions you may have. Our goal is to ensure your comfort and satisfaction throughout the entire treatment journey.


While preserving natural teeth is ideal, tooth extraction may offer several benefits, including:

  • Pain Relief: Removal of damaged or infected teeth can alleviate discomfort.
  • Infection Prevention: Extracting infected teeth prevents the spread of infection.
  • Orthodontic Alignment: Extraction may be necessary for orthodontic treatment to achieve proper alignment.
  • Improved Oral Health: Removing overcrowded or impacted teeth can promote overall oral health.


Following tooth extraction, proper aftercare is essential for optimal healing. Our recommendations include:

  • Ice Packs: Apply ice packs to reduce swelling.
  • Pain Management: Take prescribed medications as directed.
  • Rest and Recovery: Allow yourself time to rest and avoid strenuous activities.
  • Dietary Guidelines: Stick to soft foods initially and gradually reintroduce solid foods.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Attend scheduled follow-up visits for monitoring and care.

The staff is sooo friendly. I have a big fear when it comes to dentists, but my dentist calmed me down so well and talked me through what she was going to do and what she was doing while busy. I had an infected tooth that she extracted. I felt no pain and it was over within seconds. I will definitely go back.

The place is overall beautiful and the reception guys are too friendly. My only issue was the doctor. 1st she didn’t greet or introduce herself I had to ask the assistant what the Doctors name was. Also she was not patient with my son and seemed irritated most of the time. I however have to give thanks to Musa who was the assistant that guy is amazing and super patient he made my son super comfortable and explained every process to me and my son.

Frequently Asked Questions

After tooth extraction, avoid smoking, using straws, consuming hard foods, and engaging in strenuous activities to prevent complications and promote healing.

The healing time varies but typically takes several weeks for the extraction site to fully close and heal.

Before extraction, follow pre-procedure instructions provided by your dentist, which may include fasting and discontinuing certain medications.

Molars are often considered the most challenging due to their size and location, but every extraction is unique, and pain management options are available.
