Extractions at Centro Dental
At Centro Dental, we take a conservative approach to dentistry and preserve your natural teeth whenever possible with repairs or restorations. There are certain times, however, that may necessitate an extraction. In such cases, our experienced, gentle team can perform an extraction and advise you on the proper aftercare.
The Reasons for an Extraction
In the following cases, a tooth extraction can be beneficial:
- A full mouth rehabilitation
- Extensive trauma
- Severe toothaches
- The improper eruption of wisdom teeth
- To create space for orthodontic treatment
- To make space for permanent teeth to erupt
If you have an extensive infection or the tooth has been severely damaged, it may be necessary to have it removed so that you can preserve the health of the rest of your teeth.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
The last teeth to grow in are usually the wisdom teeth, located at the back of the mouth. There can often be a lack of adequate space for them to erupt, which leads to problems such as crowding, pain and infection. If you have an issue with the way your wisdom teeth grow in, we can have them extracted to prevent any damage to your oral health.
We’ll book you in for a consultation and perform a thorough examination including X-rays, which allow us to see where the wisdom teeth are and determine the best method for extraction.
We want your experience to be pleasant and relaxing during an extraction or any other procedure that we offer. We provide pain relief such as nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, and other types of sedation. Our team will take every measure so that you can stay calm and comfortable with no apprehension during your extraction Geraldton.
