Painless Tooth Extraction In Camberwell
Welcome to Camberwell Road Dental – the leading name for dentistry services, including emergency tooth extraction services in Melbourne.
Beyond the best efforts of dentists, the extraction of teeth is a reality for many though each permanent tooth is meant to last a lifetime. In such situations, your only option is to extract the tooth safely, without complicating your oral health.
At Camberwell Road Dental, we offer painless, safe, and quick tooth extraction in Camberwell and provide restorative treatment solutions to bring back the complete functionality of the extracted tooth.
Why Does Tooth Extraction Become Necessary?
The following dental conditions lead to the requirement of tooth extraction:
- Severe gum disease
- Severe dental decay, beyond repair or restoration
- Traumatic injuries
- Vertical root fractures
- Orthodontic reasons
At Camberwell Road Dental, we examine the teeth of our patients and take all the steps to avoid the extraction as we want to save each tooth if possible. Note that extraction can be part of other orthodontic procedures, such as the Invisalign® treatment.
Dental extractions are reasonably common dental procedures. If you need one, here are some of the most frequently asked questions and their answers!:
The actual procedure will greatly depend on the tooth and its position in your mouth.
Some teeth can be simply removed once you’ve received anaesthetic. For others, the dentist or oral surgeon will need to make a small incision to first expose the tooth, then remove it. You can even have several teeth removed at once, with different specific procedures for each one.
Your dental professional will be able to talk you through exactly what you can expect on the day.
In many cases, our dentist will be able to carry out the extraction at Camberwell Road Dental.
However, some scenarios will require a specialist oral surgeon to remove the tooth. Your dentist will refer you to a skilled professional who is best equipped for the removal if this is the best course of treatment for you.
You'll talk about the options when you first consult with the dentist. They’ll make recommendations based on the tooth and the procedure.
Straight-forward extractions usually only require local anaesthetic. However, you are more than welcome to request a different option and talk it over if you are uncomfortable with the idea of being awake during the procedure.
There is a small chance that the site of the extraction may become infected. Dental professionals only use sterile equipment and are extremely careful about hygiene, which is why incidences of infections are quite rare.
So long as you follow the proper aftercare instructions, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about. This will involve sticking to water rather than coffee, fizzy drinks, or other beverages, eating only soft foods, and being very careful with cleaning the site post-surgery.
If you have gone through a normal extraction under a local anaesthetic, you can mostly drive yourself back home. However, if you choose sedative dentistry for extraction, it is important to arrange someone to drive you home safely. In many cases, your dentist will put stitches, and that will dissolve in a few days.
You may experience pain and swelling for a few days that can be managed by over-the-counter drugs. If your tooth is extracted due to dental decay or other issues, your dentist may ask you to make follow-up visits to complete the restorative procedure.
