Tooth Extractions

Extraction is the treatment to take a tooth out under local anaesthetic. It is usually done because a tooth can no longer be restored, is too mobile, or for orthodontic treatment.

The Benefits

Extraction for orthodontic treatment allows the orthodontist to create sufficient space in your mouth to align your teeth. It allows for a much more favourable orthodontic outcome.

Extraction due to poor dental or gum prognosis is usually only carried out if all other options have been considered or tried. Under such circumstances, the main benefit will be removal of a source of pain and/or infection. It will also restore that area of your mouth to function, and may allow tooth replacement options to be considered.

The Process

Extractions are done under local anaesthetic. This is numbing for just the tooth or area in question. Our clinic always applies a surface numbing gel before giving the local anaesthetic injection, to give almost pain free analgesia.

If you have any concerns regarding analgesia, please do let us know so that we can make the experience as anxiety free as possible.

Once you are numb, our dentist will gently apply pressure to the tooth from various sides to make it increasingly mobile. When it is quite loose within its socket, forceps are used to help deliver the tooth. This is usually achieved with the tooth intact, but if the tooth is very decayed, it may have to be taken out in pieces.

Once all of the tooth is out, the extraction site is checked, and a pack is placed to stop the bleeding. You will be given instructions in how to take care of the site to optimise healing. You will also be prescribed some mouthwash and painkillers.

The Cost

The cost of this treatment will depend on many factors. The fee range for a non-surgical extraction is $85.60-$160.50. We always encourage you to meet with our dentist for a consultation, and discussion of your particular needs and treatment costs.

Dental Examinations

This is a critical part of the dental appointment.  At your first visit, and at subsequent check-ups, the dentist will carry out a thorough check of not just your oral health, but also the health of the peri-oral tissues.

Dental Fillings

Fillings are placed to restore teeth to function and appearance after trauma, caries removal or tooth wear. Fillings can be separated into two categories – silver coloured or tooth coloured. However we no longer place silver coloured fillings at our clinic.

Periodontal Treatment

Also known as non-surgical periodontal treatment or gum treatment, this is the treatment for people with periodontal or gum disease.  When you attend your regular check-up, our dentist will always check your gum health.

Regular Maintenance

This is the regular maintenance treatment that is normally sufficient for most people to maintain oral health. In addition to the dental check-up it involves scaling & polishing, fluoride treatment, and sometimes special tests depending on your specific needs.

Root Canal Treatments

When the nerve of a tooth dies, or becomes infected, you may experience pain and swelling. This can cause a severe toothache in extreme cases. Root canal treatment allows us to remove the infected or necrotic nerve while saving the tooth.
