Toothsavers Dentists

Why might I need a tooth extraction?

At Toothsavers Dentists, our dentists and hygienists aim to provide the type of personalised dental treatment plans that prevent the loss of natural teeth. Of course, life sometimes has other plans. We recommend tooth extractions only as a last resort to protect the surrounding teeth and overall oral health.

Some situations that lead to teeth extractions:

  • Teeth broken-off at or below the gumline
  • Bone loss due to periodontal disease
  • Auto or sports accidents
  • Infection near the nerve
  • Orthodontic extractions

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Because of their location at the very back of the mouth, wisdom teeth (third molars) often become problematic, causing pain, overcrowding and pressure on nearby teeth. We evaluate young adults as part of the comprehensive dentistry we provide to our patients. A panoramic x-ray helps determine the growth of wisdom teeth and whether you might benefit from extractions.

Gentle Teeth Extractions

We provide comfortable dental extractions and supportive post-surgical care to improve the overall patient experience. For patients who are nervous, we offer nitrous oxide sedation to calm the nerves.

If you have a painful tooth or think you may need an extraction, we welcome you to get in touch with our Mount Annan dental clinic and our dentists will outline all of your options for treatment.
