Teeth may be removed if the damage is severe and other options to save them are not suitable. Sometimes teeth are also removed if they are impacted and cause recurrent infections as is the case for some wisdom teeth.
More difficult removal may require surgery. At NDC we ensure strict adherence to aseptic surgical protocols, with modern surgical equipment and instruments to ensure efficient removal. We can provide IV sedation to assist with surgical removal for your comfort. We also have our visiting surgical colleague Dr. Cecelia So (https://www.drceciliaso.com.au/about.html) highly experienced in surgical removals.
Referrals can also be made to oral maxillofacial surgeons (OMFS) who can surgically remove difficult teeth under general anaesthetic at a local day stay hospital.
