Tooth Extractions in Ashfield Dental Centre
Extracting a tooth is usually the last consideration once all other avenues have been explored by our dentists and discussed with you. Our primary aim is for you to keep your natural teeth as long as possible, with tooth extraction being the last resort.
Inevitably though, tooth extractions need to be considered and we find the most common causes of this are:
- severe tooth damage from breakage
- severe tooth damage from decay
- severe tooth damage from infection
- severe gum disease
However extractions are performed for a wide variety of other reasons, including impacted teeth, and preparation for orthodontic treatment. If left untreated, this may affect the other teeth and cause pain and risk of infection.
Although having a tooth removed is a safe procedure, there are some things that you will need to make the dentist aware of before going ahead with the extraction, e.g. any medication you are currently taking, any health issues.
We guarantee a pain free extraction procedure under local anaesthetic and customized post-extraction care by our experienced dentists.
