Surgical extraction refers to the procedure of having a tooth or teeth removed in instances where an incision is required due to the inaccessibility of the tooth or teeth. For teeth that are present underneath the gum, partially showing through the gum or broken at the level of the gum, surgical extractions are necessary to completely remove the tooth or teeth.
At Katanning Dental Centre we understand that there could be a number of reasons as to why teeth may require surgical extraction. More commonly, surgical extraction is required when tooth damage has occurred through decay or breakage, however other reasons can include impacted wisdom teeth, possible medical conditions requiring the removal of teeth, orthodontics, periodontal disease or trauma damaged teeth.
Our qualified dentists will help guide you through your treatment should your teeth require surgical extraction. The details of your tooth removal will be clearly outlined and communicated to you prior to and post-extraction in order to ensure you are well informed throughout the treatment process.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding with a surgical or invasive procedure, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
