Tooth extraction Sydney
Our dentists in Sydney will always try to save a tooth with a filling, root canal or other treatment if possible. However, if a tooth is too badly damaged by decay, gum disease or trauma to repair, removing and replacing the tooth may be the only option to prevent further problems.
An extraction may be simple or complex, depending on whether the tooth is impacted. A simple extraction does not require surgery and may only involve loosening the tooth with forceps before gently pulling it. This procedure is performed using local anaesthesia to numb pain.
If a tooth is impacted (stuck) in the gum, your dentist will need to open the gum and break it apart to remove it. This may require another form of dental sedation such as intravenous (IV) sedation or general anaesthesia. Your may feel pain or discomfort after the treatment, which may be managed with medication.
Wisdom teeth removal Sydney
Wisdom tooth extractions are usually more complex than a standard extraction. The wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop and they don't always need to be removed. However, we may recommend extraction if a wisdom tooth is impacted in the gum, which may lead to infection, or causing teeth crowding.
During wisdom teeth removal, your dentist will make an incision in the gum to access the tooth and remove it. Depending on how complex the procedure is, you may only require local anaesthetic or you may request another sedation option.
You will need to take it easy for at least a day after the treatment and we recommend avoiding hard foods during the recovery. Applying an ice pack to the outside of your cheek or taking pain relief and anti-inflammatory medication could help to ease discomfort.
Replacing missing teeth
If a permanent tooth falls out or needs to be extracted, it should be replaced with an artificial tooth as soon as possible. Not only does this restore the appearance and function of your smile, it also helps to support the surrounding teeth.
Oral surgery is sometimes needed during preparation for a dental bridge and is always involved when placing a dental implant in the jaw. Implants or a bridge can replace one or several teeth. For more information about what's involved in placing a dental bridge or implant, see their respective treatment pages.
There are certain situations when it may be necessary to operate on the jaw.
One is if you are having dental implants, but your jaw bone is not large or dense enough to support an implant. In this case, we may discuss a bone grafting procedure with you. You may not be suitable for a bone graft if you have certain health conditions, which our dentists will discuss during your implant consultation.
Jaw surgery may also be an option if you have severe temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction and other treatments have not been successful, although this is rare.
