Sometimes before placing the denture some teeth must be removed.  The advantage at London Dentures is that the same dentist who will be fabricating the denture (with Esperanza) is the dentist who will be doing the extraction.  By owning the entire process we have a better control of the outcome and can address any needs that could come along the way.  All three dentists who do dentures - Dr. Carlos Lopez, Dr. Elizabeth Lee and Dr. Angela Ma are very versed in extractions.

There are two types of extractions:
A regular extraction is performed on a tooth that can be seen in the mouth. Most of these can be done using a local anesthetic, with or without anti-anxiety drugs.

A surgical extraction involves teeth that cannot be seen easily in the mouth. They may have broken off at the gum line or they may not have come in yet. Most simple extractions do not cause much discomfort after the procedure. Because surgical extractions are more complicated, they generally cause more discomfort after the procedure. The level of discomfort and how long it lasts will depend on the difficulty of the extraction. The dentist will prescribe medicine to alleviate pain.
