Dental Extractions In Rockhampton – What To Expect

As caring and trusted dentists, we always try to preserve teeth where we can. There are, however, times when dental extractions at our Rockhampton and Emerald dental clinics are necessary. So when are those times and what can you expect?

Tooth extraction in Rockhampton or Emerald may occur if…

  • There is extensive or severe damage to the tooth caused by tooth decay
  • It’s a viable solution to periodontal (gum) disease
  • An impacted tooth is causing problems or undermining other teeth – think wisdom teeth!
  • An accident or trauma has caused severe damage to the tooth
  • Severe teeth overcrowding is present and the only way to alleviate the problem is to extract a tooth.

What about treatment options after a tooth extraction?

At our Emerald and Rockhampton dental practices, we offer several treatment options so that you aren’t left with a tooth gap. When even one permanent tooth is missing it can have a knock-on effect on your overall health, so it isn’t recommended to leave the gap. Instead, patients can opt for:

  • A conventional bridge or partial denture to fill the tooth gap and support the remaining teeth
  • A dental implant anchored directly into the gap – this can be supported by a single crown or an implant-supported dental bridge
  • Orthodontic treatments (particularly with teeth overcrowding issues) to correctly respace the teeth.

If you need one or more dental extractions, patients visiting our Rockhampton and Emerald clinics should know that they are in experienced, capable and caring hands. To find out more, call for a consultation.

Note: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks.
