A tooth may require extraction if it is broken, painful, or damaged by decay beyond the point at which it can be saved by other treatment.

An extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Tooth extraction may also be recommended by an orthodontist to create additional space in the mouth.

Deciduous, or “baby teeth” may require extraction if their permanent replacement erupts in such a way that causes the baby tooth to be retained causing discomfort and difficulty chewing.

Extractions are performed under local anaesthetic. Ideally you should rest for the remainder of the day and and refrain from physical activity on the day of your extraction. Appropriate pain relief and other post operative precautions will be discussed.

Following an extraction we can discuss options to replace the missing tooth or teeth. This may include implants, a bridge or dentures.

We accept all major health funds, and are BUPA Members First, Medibank Members Choice, and HCF More For Teeth providers.
