Tooth ache? You may need a filling...
The longer it's left, generally the more complex the treatment required to fix it. Dont wait for it to hurt, get it looked at and make a plan now to save your teeth.
Common causes of tooth pain are broken fillings, abscessed teeth, wisdom teeth or tooth erupting, tooth decay or gum disease.
When all other treatment options have been discussed, extraction may be your only choice to solve the problem. We can comfortably numb the tooth with a local anaesthetic and remove it trouble free. If complications arise the tooth can be surgically removed.
Your dentist will give you options before this and will urge you to save the tooth if it can be done safely. You only have a certain amount of teeth in your mouth and extraction should be a last option.
