Tooth Extractions

Sometimes letting go is the only way to heal

Why choose to extract a tooth?

Tooth extraction is a process where a tooth is removed from the mouth. This is a permanent, irreversible procedure. This leaves a space where the tooth used to be. Once a tooth is removed, the jaw bone and gum heal over the site. The bone then remodels and often reduces in size. With time, the surrounding teeth can drift into the open space, changing your bite and appearance.

At Maylands Dental Centre, we have skilled in-house dental surgeons who are extremely experienced with both surgical and non surgical dental extractions. We endeavour to make this relatively uncomfortable experience both efficient and pain free!

Some things to be mindful of with tooth extraction:

  • Often the gap left by extracting a tooth requires replacement with another restorative option such as a denture, bridge or implant. These treatments can be more expensive in the long term than keeping the tooth through RCT and final restoration.
  • Every tooth extraction is different, the fee for this ranges from $175 to $450 per tooth.

Ultimately the decision to maintain your tooth will be yours, but our friendly dentists will be there to support you no matter what you decide. We will help you understand the prognosis and specifics of your tooth so that you can make the best decision based on your own personal circumstances.
