Extractions Parramatta

Woman in pain touching jawIn most circumstances, we want to do everything we can to help you preserve your natural teeth. But sometimes, teeth need to be removed for the overall health of your smile.

Is a Tooth Removal Necessary?

A dental extraction may be recommended if

  • A tooth is very loose, because of gum disease
  • You have impacted wisdom teeth
  • Root canal therapy is not an option
  • There is a severe crack or cavity that cannot be restored
  • There is a dental emergency
  • You’re in severe pain

During your exam, we’ll take an X-ray of your tooth to evaluate the extent of the damage. At that point, we can determine the next steps for your smile and discuss the best options available.

Most dental extractions are completed in a matter of minutes. After we administer numbing medication, we’ll wait 5-10 minutes then remove the tooth. Each patient is sent home with a care kit (with gauze) and special post-op instructions to follow. We recommend taking an anti-inflammatory painkiller and using a cold compress to reduce swelling.

If you require oral surgery-such as wisdom tooth removal-we may only remove one tooth at a time to ensure your comfort and a speedy recovery.

Should you have concerns after your procedure, you can always contact our office.

Aside from wisdom teeth, having a tooth removed creates excess space in your bite. This added room can lead to other teeth shifting out of place. To prevent complications like crooked or crowded teeth, we recommend replacing your tooth in a timely manner. Dental implants and bridges are two excellent options to consider.
