Our dentists will always try to save your tooth/ teeth, if possible, but sometimes due to circumstances not all teeth respond to treatment the way we would like them to resulting in the need for an extraction.
Reasons why you may need an extraction include:
Wisdom teeth are located at the very back of your mouth and are also known as third molars. They are the last adult teeth to grow in. Sometimes, wisdom teeth grow in and do not cause any trouble, but often they grow to be impacted (partially or fully trapped) into your jawbone.
Poorly positioned or impacted wisdom teeth can cause infection and discomfort. In most cases, wisdom teeth are best removed. Removal of third molars can be done in the chair in our surgery by our highly qualified dentists, depending on their level of difficulty or we are able to refer you to a local oral surgeon.
Unfortunately, we do not offer sedation or general anaesthetic options for dental treatment, so if you are hoping to be under a general anaesthetic for extractions you will need to see an oral surgeon.
