There are a few reasons to remove a tooth, which include:

  • permanent teetherupting while deciduous teeth are still present/have not exfoliated
  • for orthodontic purposes
  • when the tooth is unable to be restored
  • whenan impacted wisdom tooth causes recurrent infections.

It’s never a good experience to have teeth extracted and is normally the last option of treatment to eliminate pain urgently. Here at Frank dental we try to make it as painless as possible, by using local anaesthetic injections to block pain sensations and gentle manoeuvring. But mechanical forces are still vaguely felt. For difficult cases, particularly wisdom teeth extractions, surgical intervention maybe required.
