Tooth Extractions

Preserving your natural teeth is always a priority at Smiles in Currambine. Our team will make every effort to be sure that you can keep your teeth for as long as possible. Restorative measures such as fillings or a root canal treatment can save a tooth that would otherwise need to be removed. There are certain cases, however, in which an extraction may be necessary. If so, rest assured that our gentle team is skilled in providing extractions that minimise your discomfort.

When an Extraction Is Necessary

What to Expect During an Extraction

At your initial appointment, we’ll examine you to make sure that you need to have your tooth extracted. We may take X-rays and use other diagnostics to ensure we know what the problem is. When we determine to move forward with an extraction, we’ll tell you why and detail each step of the process to you.

The examination will direct how we perform your extraction, making sure that it’s as efficient as possible. You won’t feel anything thanks to the anaesthetic we have. Our sleep dentistry options are appreciated by our patients, and you can use them for extractions Currambine. Sutures can be placed at the site to help with your healing when necessary. You’ll be given full instructions on what to do after your procedure to recover quickly.

After Your Extraction

Your care with us doesn’t necessarily end with your extraction. If you are interested in replacing your tooth, we’ll be happy to discuss your treatment options with you. Dental implants, dental bridges or dentures may suit you depending on your unique situation. We’ll talk about these solutions so that you can decide if you’d like to get started on having us create one for you.
