Tooth Extraction

While tooth removal is not always the first option for treating a dental problem, it is sometimes necessary to extract the tooth.

 

Some of the reasons why this procedure may be required:

  • severe decay causing infection of the tooth nerve

  • gum disease

  • damage to the tooth via trauma

  • orthodontic reasons

  • wisdom teeth

 

At Mildura Family Dental both adults and children are treated in a gentle and caring manner throughout the process. 

Once the dentist makes the assessment of the tooth, they will discuss the procedure, risks and alternatives involved. Sometimes it is possible to save the tooth via root canal treatment. If the tooth needs to be removed but you would like it replaced, options such as a dental bridge, implant or a denture will also be discussed.
