When Might I Need a Tooth Extraction?
Our dentists at Tooth Savers will always try to save and restore your natural teeth whenever we can and extraction is the last option. However sometimes tooth extraction is unavoidable.
We might need to remove a badly infected tooth to help clear up the infection and to prevent it from spreading further. Sometimes a tooth will have lost too much of its original structure to be successfully restored, or it may have fractured right through the tooth root. We will need to remove teeth that have become loose due to gum disease. Occasionally a tooth that has received root canal therapy will become re-infected and its removal might be the best option.
What is the Procedure for Removing a Tooth?
We can generally remove a tooth using local anaesthetic and removal is quite straightforward and quick. Our dentist might place stitches afterwards or we may leave the empty socket to heal naturally. Healing is generally quite fast and should be uneventful. You may feel a small amount of discomfort during the first day or two and it can be useful to avoid chewing on that side of your mouth. We can give you plenty of advice on aftercare during your appointment and you are always welcome to contact us if you have any further questions once treatment is completed. You can call us on (02) 4647 5555 or visit the practice at Shop 36, 11-13 Main St, Mount Annan NSW 2567.
