Despite your best intentions, sometimes a tooth just needs to come out! If this is the case then the process includes an initial assessment where we take an xray of your tooth, so that we can diagnose and extract it. At the extraction appointment we will anaesthetise you so that you won’t feel a thing. We are able to extract your teeth under local anesthetic, relative analgesia with happy gas, or under general anaesthetic – whichever option best suits you. A more detailed quote will be given to you based on whichever option you chose.
Most Common type of extraction required. No bone removal or sutures will be required.
Cost from $200 – $350
Required if the tooth is badly broken down and needs to be extracted in pieces. Bone removal with sutures may be necessary.
Cost from $350 -$550
We always prefer to extract a painful tooth on the same day. However if you’re in a lot of pain, we may not be able to extract the tooth on the same day as your appointment, due to the amount of infection present. If this is the case, we will prescribe you a course of antibiotics to get you out of pain quickly and rebook you for a mutually suitable time to get the tooth out before the pain comes back.
Post Treatment Care
You will be placed on pain killers to take as necessary but expect some pain for 3 weeks. This pain is mostly well controlled with pain killers. Sometimes we will prescribe you with antibiotics as well depending on the level if difficulty of the extraction. Some people will experience swelling of the face and we recommend having the treatment performed when you can have a couple of days of rest afterwards.
