With the exception of wisdom teeth which may need to be extracted due to overcrowding, we’ll always try to save a tooth if possible. Even a partially or completely dead tooth may be able to be saved with Root Canal Treatment.
Some of the most common reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted are: significant tooth decay or damage; extensive tooth cracks; poor positioning; gum disease; and in preparation for orthodontic work. If necessary, your dentist will advise you on aftercare instructions such as mouth-rinses, painkillers or applying an ice pack.
Although teeth extraction might sound painful in reality most situations involve a simple and painless procedure. We use a painless local anaesthetic to numb your mouth, so the dentist can loosen and remove it for you painlessly. With our modern and safe equipment, when it comes to a visit to the dentist, you have nothing to fear at Ashmore Dental clinic.
If the dentist does need to extract one or more of your teeth, there are options such as Dentures that can give you back the functionality and aesthetics of natural teeth. We even have payment plans to help our clients with affordability. See our page on Fees and Payment Plans.
We operate 6-days a week with extended hours to make appointments more convenient for our clients. Our clinic is also easily accessible in the central Gold Coast suburb of Ashmore.
