Tooth Removal in Torquay
After your deciduous teeth (commonly known as milk or baby teeth) fall out, you’re given one last chance to take care of them correctly for the rest of your life and treat them well. We do everything in our power to help you take care of your teeth to ensure they don’t fall out or become decayed and damaged, but in some cases, it’s necessary to remove those teeth in order to protect the rest of your mouth and ensure overall oral health.
Permanent teeth can last you for your entire life, but teeth that become decayed or damaged will often need to be removed. In addition, wisdom teeth can grow in undesirable locations and will need to be extracted if they cause pain or affect your other teeth.
Do I Need to Have a Tooth Removed?
This will largely depend on your circumstances. You’re more than welcome to visit our Torquay dental practice and arrange an assessment to see if you’re due for a tooth extraction. Here are a couple of examples of situations where you will need to remove a tooth:
- Gum disease
- Severe decay
- Broken tooth that cannot be repaired
- Abscess around your gums or teeth
- Crowded teeth that are causing pain in your jaw
- Impacted wisdom teeth that are causing issues
Removing a tooth is often the last resort when there are no other options. You can rest assured that our practitioners will only recommend removing a tooth if absolutely necessary and there are no other options available. Once your tooth has been removed, we have various procedures available to help you restore your lost tooth, such as dentures and bridges.
What Makes Us Different?
Before removing any teeth, our trained practitioners will discuss the procedure with you and offer full transparency to ensure that you understand what will happen, why it’s happening and most importantly, when it will happen.
We make sure to give you peace of mind when having a tooth removed. We’ll use a local anaesthetic to numb the area to ensure a painless extraction, and we’ll take all of your pre-existing conditions and concerns into consideration before we do anything. We’ll do a complete check of your medical history to ensure that it’s safe to perform the tooth removal, and we’ll do everything we can to make you feel at ease.
From the moment you walk through our Torquay practice doors to the day your tooth is removed, we’ll take care of you every step of the way. From explaining the process to providing aftercare for your tooth weeks after the procedure, we focus on delivering a quality of customer service that you won’t see at other dental practices.
Get in touch with us today and book an assessment to see if any of your teeth will need to be removed. Alternatively, you can also get in touch with our staff if you understand your oral health situation and quickly need a tooth removed because it’s causing you pain. Whatever your needs are, we’ll do everything we can to match them.
