Tooth Extraction

Whilst the thought of a tooth extraction might not be pleasant, it can sometimes be a necessary dental procedure. At A Dentist on Centre in Bentleigh we understand the natural anxiety that such a procedure can cause and utilise pain-avoidance techniques to make the tooth extraction experience as painless and as stress-free as possible.

If you are concerned about your teeth then a full dental check-up will reveal any problems and you can discuss the entire range of treatments with your dentist.

Do you need a tooth extraction?

Tooth extraction may be needed for a number of reasons such as:

  • Damaged teeth that may be beyond repair
  • Teeth that suffer from severe periodontal disease (a consequence of gum disease that causes bone loss)
  • Infected teeth that would no longer benefit from root canal treatment
  • To relieve an overcrowded mouth, perhaps before the fitting of braces
  • To remove malpositioned teeth or teeth that are no longer functioning

Where possible, we would always try to save your tooth and view tooth extraction as the very last resort. However, if there is no other way of saving that tooth or if it is having a detrimental effect on the health of your remaining teeth we will sit down and work out a suitable treatment plan, giving you plenty of time to ask questions.
