Normally extraction is a last resort. That is why there are treatments like root canal therapy which aim to clean a tooth of infection and prevent the need for extraction. However, wisdom teeth are the exception to this rule, simply because they serve no purpose other than causing a person pain and discomfort.
At our state-of-the-art dental practice in Carnegie we can carry out oral surgery treatments, but it does depend on you and what your oral health needs are. For some patients they can have their wisdom teeth taken out under local anaesthetic. For others their wisdom teeth are at a point where they will need to be placed under a general aesthetic.
More often than not replacing a missing tooth is a last resort: at Carnegie Dental Group we provide the treatment that is best for you.
Not all wisdom teeth need to be extracted. If you are unsure, contact Carnegie Dental Group today.
The best teeth for you are your natural teeth; root canal therapy is about maintaining your natural teeth.
When you visit Carnegie Dental Group one of our friendly dentists will assess your oral health and determine what the best course of action is for you and your oral health.
