Tooth Removal

Tooth Removal

Tooth removal or tooth extraction is a procedure done by dentists to remove a tooth from its socket in the upper or lower jawbone. While it may sound daunting, tooth removal is a necessary treatment option for several dental conditions.

When is tooth extraction required?

  • Severe Dental Caries

When decay progresses to an advanced stage, it can cause irreparable damage to tooth structure.

In this case, tooth removal is essential to prevent the spread of decay and potential infection.

  • Advanced Periodontal Disease or loss of bone support

Periodontitis weakens the supporting tissues and jawbone around the teeth. If a tooth is not removed in this condition, it may cause difficulty in chewing, speaking, or swallowing.

  • Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Third molars or wisdom teeth often erupt in misaligned position. This can result in swelling, infection, damage to adjacent teeth, or worse, pain.

Tooth removal Sydney should be done to alleviate discomfort and prevent further complications.

This will depend on your orthodontist. Some dentists require tooth removal to create space in the mouth for proper alignment of the remaining teeth.

Proper assessment and treatment planning will be done by dentists prior to tooth removal itself to determine if a tooth is still savable or not. While tooth extraction is a common dental procedure, it is always advisable to explore alternative options when possible.

Other treatment options include:

This procedure involves removing the infected nerve or damaged tissue from the tooth’s root canal to restore its function and health. This is advisable for front teeth which dentists always try to save rather than extracting.

In cases of tooth decay or damage, dental crowns can be done to restore the tooth’s structure and preserve the natural tooth.
