Tooth Extraction Treatment & Care
Suffering With Tooth Decay & Pain?
At Noosa Family Dental, we understand the importance of preventative dental care and strive to preserve and maintain our patient's natural teeth through regular dental checkups and appropriate dental treatments. However, in some cases, tooth extraction may be necessary for the benefit of your overall oral and physical health. If you're experiencing significant discomfort in your tooth or jaw, or if your tooth is worn and too damaged to be saved through a root canal treatment, tooth extraction may be the best course of action.
Our team of dental experts are highly experienced in exodontia treatments and regularly performs dental extractions to provide long-lasting relief for our patients. With the aid of advanced dental technology, we can ensure that your procedure is as stress-free and comfortable as possible. We also offer sedation dentistry where possible to ensure the tooth extraction process is as pain-free as possible for you.

Why Tooth Extractions Can Be Necessary
Do You Need a Tooth Removed?
Tooth extractions may be necessary when a tooth is severely damaged or infected beyond repair, or when there is overcrowding in the mouth. Additionally, teeth may need to be extracted to prepare for orthodontic treatment, or in cases where a patient is experiencing significant pain or discomfort due to a tooth or jaw issue. While tooth extraction is typically a last resort, it can be an important step in maintaining your overall oral health and preventing further complications. Dental extraction treatments are the process of removing a tooth from the jaw bone.
Tooth removals and extractions may be required when:
- Severe tooth decay
- Teeth are cracked, split, traumatised
- Situations where a root canal treatment is not indicated
- Gum disease
- Impacted teeth
Damaged teeth can usually be restored when attended to promptly. However, if left untreated, it can lead to severe infection and periodontal disease. So, if you are experiencing any dental problems, don't hesitate. Schedule your appointment at Noosa Family Dental today.
The Benefits Of Tooth Removal & Dental Extractions
Long-Term Pain Relief & Healthier Teeth
Making the decision to pull and remove teeth can make anyone quake at the knees! However, today, tooth extraction is a simple and minimally invasive procedure that can help relieve intense pain caused by impacted, infected and broken teeth.
While it is almost always reserved as a last resort treatment, tooth removal and dental extraction offer a number of benefits.
- Tooth extraction can help prevent the spread of decay and infection, as it fully removes the root of the problem.
- Overcrowding teeth can lead to misalignment and other dental issues. Removal of teeth can help to alleviate these problems and related dental issues.
- The biggest benefit of tooth extraction is pain relief! Once decay and infection are gone, you are able to talk, eat and drink normally once again.
The Tooth Extraction Process
What You Can Expect During Tooth Removal
At Noosa Family Dental, we strive to make our tooth extraction treatment process as easy and stress-free as possible. During your consultation, we will take the time to discuss your concerns and reasons for seeking extraction, as well as provide a detailed overview of the procedure itself.
To better understand the state of your tooth, we will take an X-ray to examine the shape of the roots and determine the best course of action for removing it. Contrary to popular belief, the tooth is gently pushed and wiggled out rather than forcefully pulled. We will then place a gauze pad and dressing in the socket to allow a clot to form and stabilize for proper healing.
After the treatment, it is common to experience some swelling and discomfort, which can be managed with over-the-counter medication. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that your recovery is as smooth and pain-free as possible.
