Oral & Dental Surgery Perth WA
Extracting teeth is generally a last resort because your natural teeth are the best thing for your oral health. The exception, of course, being wisdom teeth: all wisdom teeth do is cause most people a lot of pain and discomfort. However, there are reasons why extracting other teeth can be necessary: advanced gum disease, tooth decay and certain medical conditions. At Access Dental Care in Perth, extractions are performed only on those patients where it is absolutely necessary.
Whether you need to have a tooth extracted as a result of severe gum disease, overcrowded teeth, decay, broken teeth or wisdom teeth complications, our team will thoroughly explain the full process to you and bring all of our expertise in oral surgery to your individual case.
Extractions are only performed when absolutely necessary
Before an extraction is performed, your dentist will assess your tooth to see if there is any way it can be preserved as your natural teeth play an important role in maintaining your healthy jawbone density. The extraction of an adult tooth due to decay or disease will only be performed when everything has been tried to save the tooth.
To avoid having to go through an extraction, prevention is always the best course and we recommend that you always practice good oral hygiene.
