Why might I need a tooth extraction?

At Edward St Dental, we work hard to save any damaged tooth through numerous dental interventions, with tooth-coloured fillings and root canal therapy. But situations exist where our extensive expertise may not be sufficient to prevent tooth loss.

If you require a tooth extraction in Brisbane CBD, it could be related to one or a combination of the following conditions:

  • Deep tooth infection and decay
  • Past failed fillings leave too little natural tooth for a restoration
  • Dental trauma or injury – an avulsed tooth that cannot be reimplanted
  • Excessive tooth crowding
  • Preparation for full dentures

How We Prepare You for a Dental Extraction

Before we perform a tooth extraction, our team will check your medical and dental history and use x-rays and other imagery to plan our extraction method. We will also answer any questions or concerns you have, easing your worry about pain and healing.

For your comfort, we perform all tooth extractions with a local anaesthetic to numb the area around the targeted tooth. If you are anxious about the procedure, we also offer conscious sedation available on request. In addition, we also partner with a dentist who can apply general sedation so that you may sleep through the entire treatment.
