Dental Extraction Perth

Tooth extraction is a significant decision and at Bentley Plaza Dental Clinic, we prioritise preserving and restoring your natural teeth whenever possible. However, there are circumstances when removing a problematic tooth is essential for enhancing oral health or alleviating discomfort.

Common reasons for dental extractions include:

  • Severe Decay: Addressing extensive tooth decay issues.
  • Damaged or Broken Teeth: Repairing teeth that are cracked, chipped, or broken.
  • Infection or Persistent Pain: Treating teeth with ongoing infections or continuous discomfort.
  • Previously Treated Teeth with Problematic Root Canals: Reassessing and addressing issues with teeth that have undergone previous root canal treatments but are still problematic.
  • Wisdom Teeth Issues: Managing complications related to wisdom teeth.
  • Teeth Removal for Orthodontic Reasons: Extracting teeth to facilitate orthodontic treatments.

It's important to note that experiencing a toothache doesn't automatically lead to extraction. Often, infected teeth can be saved through root canal therapy or by eliminating decay and protecting the tooth with a crown. A comprehensive examination by our dental team will provide a precise diagnosis and a range of treatment options for your consideration. At Bentley Plaza Dental Clinic, we believe in empowering you with information so you can make informed decisions about your dental care.

Tooth Removal Perth

At Bentley Plaza Dental Clinic, our skilled dentists make tooth extraction procedures straightforward and comfortable for our patients. Whether it's a simple extraction, where the tooth is loosened and then removed with precision using forceps, or a surgical extraction for teeth that are broken at the gumline or impacted, requiring an incision for removal, we ensure minimal discomfort throughout the process. Most patients find the experience less daunting than anticipated, with the brief sensation from the anaesthetic needle being the peak of any discomfort. Following the extraction, some tenderness and numbness are normal but typically diminish within a few days, as we guide you towards a swift recovery.
