Tooth Extractions & Wisdom Teeth Removal

While prevention is always our preferred path to dental health, there are times when a tooth is badly decayed or damaged and has a poor long term chance of survival even with the use of Root canal treatment and crowns. If this is the case, an extraction will likely be the most effective treatment to maintain your oral health.

What Is A Tooth Extraction?

A tooth extraction involves the removal of a tooth or teeth that are beyond any restorative treatments. We will only recommend this course of treatment as a last resort. Some of the reasons you may need a tooth extraction include:

  • Severe Decay
  • Trauma
  • To relieve crowding
  • Infection that cannot be remedied with Root Canal Treatment
  • Gum disease
  • Problematic Wisdom Teeth

What Can I Expect From My Tooth Extraction Appointment?

Before an extraction is performed an X-ray will be taken to determine the most appropriate course of treatment. If an extraction is indicated, the experienced team at Albion Dental Care having performed countless extractions will remove the tooth with as little discomfort as possible.

If you suspect a problem with a tooth we recommend making an appointment for a general check up as soon as possible. You may be able to avoid an extraction and instead receive other restorative treatments such as a filling ,root canal or crown. It is also then important to maintain a regular check up schedule to ensure that any future issues are identified before they require more extensive treatments to resolve.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars at the back of the jaw. It is quite common for them to cause discomfort when they are erupting. People in their late teens can experiencing pressure on their adjacent teeth ,infections and decay as they are difficult to clean. It is not uncommon for people to require extraction of their wisdom teeth.

If you are experiencing discomfort in the back of your jaw, we encourage you to come in for a check up as your wisdom teeth may be the cause. If they require extraction they can sometimes be removed in the chair using local anaesthetic. In the case where they require surgical removal we will refer you to a specialist Oral Surgeon.
