Tooth extractions – sometimes called tooth removal or taking out a tooth.
Ballarat dentist Dr Don Anderson takes out teeth. He has been removing teeth for 30+ years. This means he has seen thousands of extraction problems.
Because there can be health consequences when teeth are extracted Dr Don Anderson will recommend tooth keeping where possible.
But sometimes a tooth cannot be saved.
The choice of treatment is always yours, to keep or not to keep.
Mostly a diagnosis fee or consultation fee is charged. Sometimes, but not always an x ray is needed.
We always hope for a straight forward extraction but sometimes their are complications
A tooth can be removed for several reasons but mainly because pain is present.
Pain does not always mean extraction – depending on the condition of the tooth and surrounding gums pain can also be relieved with tooth – keeping procedures (root canal treatment)
We leave time each day for emergency care. And, mostly the problem will be treated at that appointment on the day.
For nervous people Don Anderson Dentist Ballarat offers (for a fee) relative analgesia, sometimes known as “happy gas”.
