Sometimes, people need to have a tooth pulled out. This tooth extraction is usually done by a dentist or an oral surgeon. Here at Capital Dental we have extensive knowledge and accredited dentists that provide a leading tooth extraction service for all our clients. There are various reasons why you might need to have a tooth pulled. Learn what to expect during and after this dental procedure.


When might you need a tooth extraction?

You might need to have a tooth pulled out if you have:

– Severe gum disease

– A deep infection in a tooth

– A broken tooth

– Crowded teeth

– Problems with a wisdom tooth

If you need a tooth to be removed, our dentists will usually give you a local anaesthetic to numb your mouth so you don’t feel pain. Moreover, the dentist will then use a specialised tool to loosen the tooth in the gum. Once the tooth is loose, our dentist will remove it with forceps. If your tooth extraction is more complicated, you might need to be given a general anaesthetic, which will put you to sleep.

Complete healing occurs within 1 to 2 weeks of the extraction. Experience our phenomenal dental services here at Capital Dental; Canberra’s leading dentists.
