Campbelltown Dentist Removing teeth is generally used as a last resort in complex dental problems.
From your local Campbelltown Dentist, Centric Dental Views
We do everything we can to avoid teeth extraction but sometimes it can be the best option
Taking out a tooth is often necessary because of decay, impacted wisdom teeth or other problems such as abscess or gum disease. At Centric Dental Views extraction is a last resort. Dr Ilic does everything he can by way of other dental procedures to avoid removing teeth but there are situations where this is unavoidable.
Infected or impacted wisdom teeth
Generally, these are the last teeth to grow. Wisdom teeth can be a major source of potential infection in the mouth and can cause serious discomfort when infected or impacted. Wisdom teeth usually start causing problems in young adults and are important to address as soon as possible- especially if you are planning a pregnancy.
Dr Ilic will examine you and your x-rays to determine the nature of the problem and the best solution.
Dental anaesthetic options
Some cases require a general rather than a local anaesthetic. After consultation with Dr Ilic you may decide to have a procedure performed by an oral surgeon in a hospital environment under general anaesthetic. Central Dental Views will assist you with such arrangements.
