Who to call for tooth extraction in Brisbane

Tooth extraction can sound like a scary concept, especially if you’re already anxious about visits to the dentist. However, if you suspect or have been advised that you may need one or more teeth extracted, it is unwise to delay your appointment. Symptoms may very well worsen and cause more pain or even require more extensive treatment over time.

This is why it’s important to find a trustworthy dentist with the expertise to perform tooth extraction with as little pain and stress as possible. Fortunately, if you live in Brisbane and are local to the Greenslopes area, Road Dental can help take any anxiety out of the process.

Reasons to get teeth extracted

Tooth extraction is typically a last resort when a tooth cannot be saved, but there are some occasions where the best option is to remove healthy teeth. This can occur with overcrowding for instance, when space needs to be made in the mouth for teeth to be moved into a more orderly position.

In other circumstances, we will do what we can to save a tooth, including root canal procedures in the case of tooth decay, but there are many injuries that are too severe for restorative surgery. Sporting accidents, bad falls, car accidents, and blows to the face are all potential causes of loose or broken teeth. These often require removal. Other reasons may include impaction, which is common in wisdom teeth, or periodontal disease.

If you are experiencing any issues such as wisdom teeth problems, gum disease or an oral health issue that requires tooth removal, it is important to seek a second opinion. Furthermore, if your wisdom teeth are only partially erupting or not erupting at all, proceeding with the extraction procedure may be necessary for your long-term dental health and wellbeing. In addition, you should be aware of the risks and common side effects associated with wisdom tooth extraction such as dry socket and/or a blood clot. It is advisable to discuss all options before proceeding you should seek a second opinion so that your chosen dentist is able to accurately advise you on what the best course of action will be for your dental implant or teeth to erupt.

Finding a skilled and experienced dentist in Brisbane to perform a tooth extraction is essential for ensuring your comfort, safety and wellbeing. At the initial consultation, your dentist will discuss with you the cost of the procedure, as well as the local anaesthetic that can be used to minimise any pain or discomfort during the process. If needed, your dentist may even recommend surgical extraction if wisdom teeth removal is required or if there are complications due to surrounding bone or adjacent teeth. After the procedure is complete, your dentist will explain how best to manage the healing process at home and what signs and symptoms to look out for at the extraction site.
