Why would I need a tooth extracted?

Sometimes, teeth need to be extracted due to injury or disease. Our first priority at Dental Choice is to provide thorough cleanings and general dentistry treatments so that patients’ teeth are healthy and less likely to require removal in the future. 


Will I feel anything during the procedure? 

Your doctor will use local anaesthesia before beginning the procedure to ensure you don’t feel any pain. Additionally, we offer sedation techniques so that the procedure is as comfortable as possible and will minimize discomfort during dental surgery.


Once the tooth/teeth are removed, what are my options? 

Our Dentists will discuss solutions such as dental implants, dental bridges, and dentures to replace teeth that are removed.


Why am I being referred to an Oral Surgeon?

Dental Choice dentists will review options to best suit your dental needs and requirements. You might need to see an oral surgeon for a dental implant or the treatment of tumours and cysts in the jaw. Oral surgery may also be required to solve cosmetic dental and reconstructive dental problems. Tooth extraction is the most recognized form of oral surgery, but there are several other reasons why your dentist may refer you to an oral surgeon.

These reasons include the following.

  • Removal of one or more teeth
  • Emergency wisdom tooth extraction
  • Replacement of missing teeth using dental implants
  • Treating obstructive sleep apnea
  • Treating serious conditions affecting the teeth, lips, jaw, palate and face
  • Alleviating problems caused by a tooth infection, facial swelling or facial pain
  • Reconstructing the maxillofacial region after a serious accident or an injury
  • Removing a tumour caused by cancer in the jaw, face and neck area


How much will it cost to have a tooth/teeth removed?

Pricing for dental extractions varies depending on a number of factors. These factors include:

  • Examination and x-rays needed to diagnose the tooth’s condition
  • The level of difficulty of the extraction
  • The degree to which the tooth is visible (for example, wisdom teeth are often buried in the gums, making their removal more complicated)
  • If sedation is used
