Extractions Armadale

Tooth being extractedAt Champion Family Dental, you have access to a broad array of dental services. All ages can find the solutions they need with our gentle, experienced team. You’re in great hands when you choose us for your dental care.

In certain situations, it may be necessary to have a tooth extracted. We’ll explore all possible options before opting for an extraction. If it is required for you to maintain your oral health, we’ll keep your procedure as simple and straightforward as we can.

What to Expect During An Extraction

The first step is to have a consultation. At this appointment, we’ll examine your mouth including teeth, gums and all soft tissues. The tooth in question will be thoroughly evaluated to make sure that an extraction is the most appropriate way to proceed.

Once decided, you’ll be numbed so that you won’t feel anything. We’ll double-check with you to make sure that you feel numb before proceeding. Then, we’ll loosen up the tooth and remove it.

Recovering After a Tooth Extraction

It can be a good idea to take the rest of the day off work. For more serious extractions, more time may be needed. We’re able to write a note to your employer if you require time off work following your extraction. If you need a wisdom tooth extraction, we recommend a full week of leave from your job.

When An Extraction Is Necessary

You may be wondering in which situations an extraction is most appropriate. These include cases of severe gum disease. The bacteria builds up around the gums and causes bone loss, which results in teeth that are loose and wobbly in your mouth. Your tooth may need to be extracted if it causes discomfort when you chew or you notice swelling is present.


Large areas of decay that have eaten away at your tooth might mean it can’t be saved with a measure such as a filling or root canal and will need an extraction. Broken teeth that can’t be built up again should also be extracted. If your wisdom teeth are growing in improperly or your mouth doesn’t have space for them, you should have them extracted.

Impacted wisdom teeth

The molars in the back of your mouth begin to grow in during the late teen years or early twenties. These teeth are referred to as your wisdom teeth. Since they’re the last to erupt, there may not be sufficient space in your mouth for them. If this occurs, they will become impacted, trying to push up through your gums but unable to due to a lack of space. If you or your teen are having troubles with your wisdom teeth, it may be time to have them extracted.


Do you have sedation options available?
Yes. You can opt for intravenous (IV) sedation. We’ll have a dentist specialised in IV sedation come in for your procedure so that you don’t need to go to another clinic to complete your treatment. He’ll administer the sedation while you’re in the chair.

Another option is to have general anaesthesia in hospital. Our dentists are qualified to offer this sedation option. You’ll wake up from your procedure to find that all your treatment has been completed.

Do I need to replace an extracted tooth?

You might assume that it’s okay to leave a gap in your mouth. Though you may not realise it, there can be serious consequences of not replacing a tooth after it’s been extracted. Your other teeth can begin to shift in an attempt to fill the new gap in your mouth, resulting in crooked teeth, loose teeth or crowding.

Are there options available at your clinic to replace my tooth after having it extracted?

Yes. We offer options including dental implants, dentures and bridges that can fill the space where your tooth has been extracted.
Will my wisdom teeth need to be removed?
Maybe or maybe not. We will be able to determine whether yours need to be removed by taking a radiograph to see if your wisdom teeth are impacted or not. If they are, then removal is recommended.

What should I do to address any discomfort afterwards?

As you may feel some soreness following your extraction, you can take over-the-counter pain relievers as directed. You also can apply ice packs to reduce swelling and any discomfort. Also, it’s a good idea to avoid eating any hard foods as they could aggravate the wound site.
