Does My Tooth Need to be Pulled?
Tooth extractions are usually reserved for non-restorable teeth – in situations when a crown or root canal is not appropriate.
We may suggest having your tooth removed if you have experienced:
- Severe periodontal (gum) disease
- A dental emergency
- Painful abscesses or swelling
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Extensive tooth loss, requiring full mouth reconstruction
It is important to plan how your tooth will be replaced afterwards, as this will preserve natural biting patterns and your tooth alignment. We recommend dental implants as the best choice for most cases.
Wisdom Teeth Removal in Perth
Wisdom teeth – the third set of molars – usually come in during the middle of your teen years. These molars can cause problems for young adults if there is not enough space in their jaw for the tooth to fully emerge. This unfortunately means that when a wisdom tooth becomes impacted in the bone or against another tooth, it can lead to problems like decay, gum disease, pain, and swelling. Additionally, the pressure that the wisdom teeth place on adjacent teeth can cause overall crowding.This provides added stability while eliminating the need for more extractions.
Sedation Available Upon Request
Treatments such as an extraction are quite common, yet they can cause some anxiety for many patients who feel nervous about seeing a dentist. We offer sedation options for our patients as a way to further calm their mind and create a more comfortable experience.
