At Dental Care West we are aware that no one really wants to get a tooth removed. We will work with you to make sure it is either what you really want, or that there is no other option available. Generally, a tooth extraction is performed mainly if there is extreme tooth decay or trauma. Tooth extractions can also be a part of a larger dental procedure including the extraction of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic or Invisalign treatment, however we emphasise we only take this option if absolutely necessary.
Our aim during this procedure is to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible. Most people with have their extraction under local anaesthetic, where we numb the gum, tooth and bone so you feel no pain. Some patients may wish to be sedated with our Sleep Dentistry option where you are asleep.
