Tooth Removal in Brisbane CBD

Brisbane CBD dental extractions

First Dental Studio can ease
your discomfort with simple and
painless extractions

At First Dental Studio, our focus is primarily on prevention, as well as providing a holistic approach to oral health and hygiene. Because of this, it is always our priority to help patients preserve their natural teeth.

In some cases, however, it is certainly within the patient’s best interests to have a problematic tooth or wisdom tooth extracted before it causes further (and at times, irreversible) problems. Common reasons you may require an extraction include:

  • Severe tooth decay or damage to the tooth’s structure
  • Trauma
  • Crowded teeth
  • Infection that cannot be remedied with root canal therapy
  • Periodontal disease (commonly known as gum disease)
  • Problematic wisdom teeth
  • A compromised immune system

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

The third and final set of molars that a person develops is more commonly referred to as ‘wisdom teeth’. It isn’t uncommon for a patient to experience problems associated with their wisdom teeth, including:

  • Teeth that are impacted or partially impacted
  • Pressure against neighbouring teeth, causing crowding
  • Difficulty cleaning the area
  • Subsequent infections or decay in the wisdom tooth or neighbouring tooth

Thankfully, our oral health care team are highly experienced in all matters relating to tooth removal and use advanced technology to accurately plan a successful extraction.

The Tooth Extraction Procedure

During your procedure, we will carefully numb the area around the tooth to minimise any discomfort. If we are performing a simple extraction (i.e. the tooth is visible in the mouth), then our dentist will use a tool called an elevator to loosen the tooth, before removing the tooth with forceps.

If surgery is required (for example, to remove a wisdom tooth below the gum line), our dentist will need to make a small incision in the gum. Stitches will then be placed in the area to allow the wound to fully heal and close. Our professional team will also provide you with post-extraction care instructions to assist with a speedy recovery.
