Extraction - Including Wisdom Tooth Removal
Our aim in North Shore cosmetic is to keep your own teeth as long possible. There are certain instances where removal of the tooth is inevitable and it is only done after careful consideration and discussion with the patients.
Some of the reasons for taking the tooth out are:
• Loose primary teeth
• Badly decayed, damaged or broken teeth which are beyond repair.
• Periodontally involved teeth with severe infection and damage to the bone.
• As part of orthodontic treatment to improve the position and aesthetics of the teeth.
• Wisdom teeth causing discomfort to patients.
Extractions are done under local anaesthesia.
Post-operative instructions are always given to patients.
Please note: ‘Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.’
