Treatments – Dental Extraction

dental extraction

An extraction is the removal of a tooth that has a poor prognosis or is un-restorable.

As daunting as an extraction may sound, the process is usually pain free with most people not even realising the procedure is complete.

Dental extractions are routinely done in a dental practice setting under local anaesthetic with only more complex extractions being referred to hospital when required.

Should a dental extraction be required, the dentist will discuss all the risks and benefits involved with the procedure.
