Situations That May Require a Tooth Extraction
Patients may need a tooth removed for a variety of reasons, such as:
- Severe tooth decay
- A large crack or fracture
- Breakdown of an old restoration
- An infected or abscessed tooth that can’t be saved with a root canal
- Wisdom teeth
- Preparation for orthodontic treatment or full dentures
Dr Kinsella views tooth extractions as a last resort and explores all other treatment options first. He will work closely with you to ensure that you understand all the procedures that are available for your dental health so you can make decisions that are best for your needs.
Your Comfort Is Our Priority
Tooth extractions don’t have to be overwhelming when you work with a dental team who focuses on your needs. Dr Kinsella and his team use dental anaesthetics to ensure your comfort and that you won’t feel anything during the procedure. His skill and experience also help tooth extraction procedures go smoothly.
After your tooth extraction, you will leave with specific instructions on how to care for your mouth following your oral surgery. Your West Perth dental team is available to help you if you have any questions or concerns during the recovery process.
Options for Tooth Replacement After an Extraction
It’s a good idea to consider replacing your tooth after an extraction unless it’s a wisdom tooth or your tooth is being removed for orthodontic treatment. A missing tooth can make talking and chewing food difficult, and it also impacts your dental health.
Without a tooth replacement, your neighbouring teeth may begin to drift and move into the open space. Tooth movement causes bite misalignment and can also increase the risk of developing problems like gum disease or tooth decay.
Dr Kinsella offers solutions for missing teeth like dental implants or bridges. He is happy to help you select the right option to protect both your dental health and your smile.
