Extractions are performed when a tooth is broken, fractured or too badly damaged by gum disease to be saved with gum therapy. In this case, it is necessary to take the tooth out so that the disease cannot spread to other parts of the mouth. Although our philosophy is to remain as conservative as possible and avoid unnecessary trauma, in some cases the tooth must be pulled.
Reasons for extractions:
- Damage or injury
- Advanced tooth decay
- Impacted teeth
- Advanced gum disease
We make extractions comfortable
When one of your teeth can’t be saved or is causing major disruption or damage to your other teeth, unfortunately, it will need to be removed. You’ll be thankful to know that surgical extractions are often a simple procedure that can be completed in the dental surgery while you’re under a local anaesthetic at Dental at Joondalup, in Perth.
Wisdom teeth are the most common culprits when it comes to extractions. The simple reason behind this is that if your wisdom teeth erupt, they’ll cause problems that will end up in pain and discomfort for you.
