Making Your Oral Health Our Top Concern
A tooth extraction may be the last thing anyone wants. But in some instances, such as extensive decay or overcrowding, it may be necessary to remove a tooth. Now we understand that surgical procedures of any kind can be daunting. This is why we have a team of friendly dentists and gentle staff to help you through any dental procedure.
Oral surgery is not a procedure we suggest lightly. It’s only when a tooth extraction may be necessary to preserve healthy teeth and your oral well-being that it is recommended. At Bellevue Hill Dental, we’re committed to your oral health and treat each dental problem to encompass the scope of your dental requirements. We aim to deliver solutions tailored to your needs and lifestyle for a lasting and healthy smile.
Reasons Why you may Need a Tooth Extraction
The main reasons you might need a surgical extraction are:
- Infections and tooth decay
- Discomfort or other issues relating to your wisdom teeth
- When a tooth is damaged beyond repair, usually by tooth decay or trauma
- Advanced periodontal disease causing pain or infection
- If a tooth is not functioning and is structurally unstable
- When the extraction is part of an orthodontic treatment plan to make space to straighten teeth
Tooth Extraction at Bellevue Hill Dental
Bespoke treatments are at the core of everything we do. We understand that each patient has a unique smile and discerning factors leading to any dental issue. This is why we get to the root cause of your dental problem, exploring all possible options before recommending a tooth extraction surgery.
There are two types of tooth extractions procedures offered at our clinic:
Regular Tooth Extraction
Modern dental care offers many excellent teeth restorative treatments for damaged and broken teeth. Procedures such as dental implants, crowns and veneers can restore your smile’s appearance and improve oral health and hygiene while protecting your healthy teeth.
But there are situations when a patient may not be suitable for such procedures and may have to opt for a teeth extraction instead. This requires a dentist with a gentle touch and knowledge of oral surgery. At our Ballarat clinic, we use the latest technology and techniques to make your oral surgery as comfortable as possible.
With a comprehensive consultation involving oral examination and x-rays, we provide a clear picture of your dental issue to design personalised treatment plans. We have a range of sedation and anaesthesia options to ensure minimal discomfort and gentle dentists who support you every step of the way.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth extraction may be needed if the wisdom tooth does not have enough space to grow properly. This can lead to pain and an increased risk of infection if left untreated. While not everyone may need to have their wisdom tooth extracted, it’s always better to get it checked to avoid future complications.
At Bellevue Hill Dental, we will provide treatment options that maximise your comfort and oral health. We have many options available for wisdom teeth removal, including the use of IV Sedation to limit discomfort and anxiety.
