When Is It Time for a Tooth Extraction?

Posted By: Charlestown Dental Care

Even though we see them as a last resort, sometimes a tooth extraction may be necessary to protect your remaining teeth and your dental health. If that time comes for you, we want you to know that your comfort is our top priority at Charlestown Dental Care, especially during a tooth extraction procedure. Our dentists and team members go above and beyond to ensure that you feel at ease in the dental chair and will support you before, during, and after your procedure and throughout your recovery process.

When Do Our Dentists Recommend Dental Extractions in Charlestown NSW?

There are certain situations in which removing a tooth may be the best way to protect your oral health. Some of these conditions may be:

  • A tooth that is broken, traumatized or fractured beyond what we can restore with a crown or filling
  • Tooth decay that has reached the nerve and caused an infection that a root canal is unable to treat
  • A tooth that is severely damaged by gum disease
  • Wisdom teeth that are crowded or stuck beneath the gum line

Our dentists will assess your situation to help determine the best treatment to restore your smile.

Replacing a Lost Tooth

Without a replacement, a missing tooth may be a catalyst for more damage to your remaining teeth, which can result in further tooth loss. For this reason, it is important to replace a missing tooth as soon as you can. Our dentists can help with tooth replacement options like dental implants, full or partial dentures, or dental bridges.

If it is not wisdom teeth you are having removed, we are happy to assess your unique situation to help determine which tooth replacement option might be right for your needs.
