Tooth Extraction

At Kensington Health Clinic, our goal to keep your teeth as long as possible – ideally a lifetime. You dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatments. Sometimes, however, there’s too much damage for the tooth to be repaired – the only option is to extract damaged or decayed teeth. A very loose tooth also will require extraction if it can’t be saved.

Reasons for extraction:

  • Tooth Decay
  • Gum disease
  • Impacted teeth
  • Crowded teeth

How is the tooth extracted?

You dentist will take an X-ray of the area to help plan the best way to remove the tooth. If you are having the wisdom teeth removed then panoramic X-ray will be taken that will allow your dentist to see a picture of all of your teeth at once and help him to guide an extraction.

After taking X-ray, your dentist will give you a local anaesthetic to completely numb the area. Once your dentist extracts a tooth you’ll be pleased to hear that there are a number of options to replace it – dental bridges and implants both provide great solutions for missing teeth.

Your dentist will also give instructions at the conclusion of your treatment which is very important you follow them.
