Emergency Tooth Removal in Melbourne

Tooth Extractions

Although teeth are meant to last for life, sometimes people will have to undergo an emergency tooth removal procedure. This is a very common and basic procedure at Dental on Clarendon; however, we want to ensure that our patients fully understand what teeth extraction entails. Letting patients know what they should expect often reduces the anxiety they feel and helps them be better prepared for any treatments they require.

Commonly Asked Questions

When is a Dentist Tooth Extraction Required?

A patient may need to have one of their teeth pulled out if they have:

  • Severe gum or tooth disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Broken teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Issues with a wisdom tooth
When Would Someone Need An Emergency Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

Sometimes an emergency wisdom tooth extraction is required if wisdom teeth don’t have enough space to properly grow. Not addressing wisdom teeth early on can cause issues and affect your other teeth.

What Alternatives Are There to Teeth Extraction?

Prior to undergoing any type of dental tooth extraction, you should ask our dentist in South Melbourne about possible alternate procedures.

Can I Drive Myself Home After the Procedure?

If your dentist uses a local anaesthetic, then you can drive yourself home. However, if they used a general anaesthetic, then no; you will need to have someone else drive you home.

How Much Does Tooth Extraction Cost?

The tooth extraction cost at our Melbourne clinic depends on whether the procedure uses local or general anaesthesia as well as the complexity. You should discuss this with our dentist prior to the procedure. It’s also recommended that you check if your health insurance will cover the tooth extraction cost.
