Tooth removal

How we approach tooth removal

​If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, we will usually try to fix your tooth first, using a filling, crown or other dental treatment. But when there’s too much damage for the tooth to be repaired, usually from trauma or decay, the tooth may need to be removed from its socket in the bone.

 

Tooth removal may be required if you have:

  • crowded teeth

  • a broken tooth

  • a deep infection in a tooth

  • risk of infection

  • severe gum disease

  • issues with a wisdom tooth.

WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL

Wisdom teeth (third molars) can cause problems and pain if they are impacted. If you're suffering from painful or problem wisdom teeth, book an appointment with us, to assess your oral health and determine the best treatment for you. If your jaws have insufficient room for the wisdom teeth to grow or erupt into a position that allows them to be functional teeth, it may be advisable to remove your wisdom teeth. In some cases, you may need to have your teeth removed by an oral surgeon.

 

Removing wisdom teeth can help to prevent or eliminate problems such as:

  • infections of the gum around the teeth

  • decay adjacent functioning teeth

  • gum disease around the molar teeth

  • a thorough evaluation and x-ray is necessary before wisdom teeth removal to determine the best removal plan.

What to expect

    Your dentist will use instruments to remove your tooth from its socket.

     

  4. PROVIDE AFTERCARE
