Removing a tooth is usually necessary as a last resort after a comprehensive range of treatment options have been exhausted. This may be due to a tooth that cannot be repaired by fillings, root canals, crowns, or supporting structures suffering from chronic irreversible gum disease.
When your tooth can’t be repaired, tooth removal may be the best option for you. Our experienced dental care professionals will guide you through each step after a comprehensive consultation with empathy and understanding.
Contrary to popular belief, most wisdom tooth extractions are no different to any other tooth. As with all extractions, your dentist will take a radiograph (x-ray) to determine the position and integrity of the roots during your consultation. Local anaesthesia is always used to ensure your comfort.
Most wisdom teeth are suitable for removal in the comfort of our dental practice. Occasionally, wisdom teeth roots are situated near vital nerves or near sinuses. If this is the case, we will happily refer you to a trusted team of professionals for oral surgery.
