SmileWorks Dental Ballarat offers a comprehensive range of tooth extraction services, including straightforward tooth extractions, wisdom tooth extractions, and surgical extractions. These treatments are conducted with the utmost care and precision to ensure the patient’s safety and comfort.
For straightforward extractions, a local anaesthetic is usually used to numb the area so the tooth can be removed with minimal discomfort. For wisdom tooth extractions, the dentist will need to assess the patient’s mouth and adjacent tooth structure to determine the best approach for the extraction. Sometimes, the wisdom teeth may need to be removed in stages to reduce the risk of complications.
For surgical extractions, the dentist may need to cut into the gum tissue to extract the tooth. In all cases, the dentist will take the necessary steps to ensure the patient’s safety and comfort throughout the procedure.
At SmileWorks Dental Ballarat, we strive to provide a safe and comfortable environment for all dental extractions, whether simple or complex.
Adhering to the appropriate aftercare routine following a dental extraction is essential for a successful recovery.
There are two types of tooth extractions: surgical and non-surgical.
Once the extraction has been completed, it is essential to follow the aftercare instructions provided by the dentist. This includes avoiding strenuous activities, eating a soft diet, and cleaning the area with salt-water rinse. Painkillers and antibiotics may be prescribed to reduce discomfort and prevent infection. Regular follow-up appointments with the dentist will help monitor the healing process.
At SmileWorks Dental Ballarat, dentists use a comprehensive and personalised approach to assess whether a tooth requires extraction carefully.
This process involves examining the patient’s oral health history, current oral health status, the severity of any tooth decay or damage, and the impact of the affected tooth on surrounding teeth. The dentists will also consider the alignment of wisdom teeth, lack of space, bone around the teeth, crooked teeth, and infected teeth. The dental team will also look at the options for natural tooth replacement, such as wisdom teeth extractions or wisdom teeth removal.
Our comprehensive approach ensures that our patients can make an informed decision about their oral health and treatment.
Depending on the case’s complexity, a tooth extraction procedure can take a few minutes to several hours. At SmileWorks Dental Ballarat, dentists take the necessary time to ensure the extraction is as smooth and pain-free as possible. We consider factors such as the following:
