Teeth Hurting Too Much?

We'll Be Gentle

Having your tooth pulled can eliminate the source of infection, pain, health risk to the teeth next to it and be the first step of smile reconstruction

We're Not Just Pulling Your Leg

The first thing Dr Mark Chung (Dentist) will want to do is examine your tooth and have an X-ray taken. From there, he will determine if the tooth needs to be extracted

Effective & Efficient

If special accommodations are needed, Dr Chung can arrange to have an oral surgeon complete your procedure

Treating You Like You Are Family

Typically, we want to do everything possible to save your tooth. But Dr Chung will usually recommend having it taken out if a certain situation is taking place

We want to make sure that you are as comfortable and relaxed as possible providing you with a positive experience

What It Is

Generally, dental extractions are due to the tooth being non-restorable or having aggressive periodontal disease

When Do I Need To Extract A Tooth?

When a tooth cannot be saved, extracting it is typically the best solution. Especially if you’re in severe pain or there is a chronic infection. Our Artarmon dentist may recommend removing your tooth if there is:

• Aggressive, non-restorable decay
• A severe fracture or crack
• Pain from an emergency
• Severe periodontal disease and bone loss
• Advanced infection or facial swelling

Saving vs. Removing A Tooth

Sometimes the best thing to do for your smile is to preserve the natural teeth you already have. But if restorative therapies such as a crown or root canal cannot restore your tooth, removing it may be the only way to prevent the spread of infection into adjacent teeth.

What To Expect?

Dental extractions can range from quite simple procedures to more complex treatments. Much of it will depend on the tooth and factors related to why it needs to be removed. To ensure your comfort, we thoroughly numb the entire site around the tooth so that all you will feel is a bit of pressure.

We recommend taking an anti-inflammatory and applying a cold compress on and off every 20 minutes for the first 12-24 hours following your procedure to limit swelling.

Dr Chung will also help you develop a plan to replace your missing tooth, such as with a dental implant or bridge.

What If I Am Nervous?

Being anxious about a tooth extraction is quite common. We want to remind you that we’re here to help. There’s no pressure to rush through your procedure, especially if your mouth is sensitive.

Anesthetic will be adjusted to ensure you don’t have to feel anything during the visit. It’s probably best to take a couple of days off after your extraction to recover. If your mouth is sore, we can prescribe a pain killer to alleviate the discomfort. Our office will follow up with you a few days after to ensure that you’re recovering nicely.

Having extra space in your smile can lead to shifting and movement of your remaining teeth. To avoid irregular wear patterns, potential TMJ disorder and abnormal tooth wear, Dr Chung recommends replacing your tooth in a timely manner. In most cases, a dental implant is the best solution (as implants are non-invasive to other teeth).

About Extractions

REMOVE A TOOTH, KEEP A SMILE

Usually the only alternative to having a tooth removed is to treat it with a root canal or filling. However, if Dr Chung feels that there’s not enough structure left to support either restoration, he’ll discourage it. If you still want to pursue a root canal but the tooth doesn’t last, you can put that investment toward a replacement, such as a dental implant.

Testimonials

Our dear patients are the finest you can ask for. 

As an adult who’s spent 6 years scared of going to the dentist, my first visit at Artarmon Fine Dental and Dr Mark and Molly made every effort to ensure I was comfortable throughout my visit. I was given options and plans about how to progress with my treatments and included in the decision making every step of the way. You guys are amazing.

I have had 3 of my teeth filled and one pulled out. Never felt a thing. Great service and environment. Vary caring and passionate. Prices are very reasonable compared to the services they provide. 5 out of 5 for me. Highly recommend them!

Kamibz Shojaee

Mark and Molly and the team work together really well. The friendly culture extends to making sure patients are comfortable. They take time to answer questions, and are very responsive to preferences in treatment.

Joel Penson

I had a great experience with Mark. I had a difficult tooth extraction at a different dentist and I was in pain even after good 10 days. I decided to visit Mark and he and his team did a fantastic job in making sure I was healing well and was feeling better. I cannot recommend Fine Dental and Mark enough. I’m very happy with my treatment so far and I look forward to returning for my implant later this year. Thank you Mark.
