What our dentists do?


When toothache strikes and a tooth is very badly damaged, an extraction maybe the only choice available.  We offer a prompt service for acute pain cases, so that toothache need not disrupt your life longer than necessary.


At our clinic, we can assess diseased teeth with x-rays and photos and advise you on the best course of action.   In the event that you do require an extraction, our dentists can also advise you on replacement options for the missing tooth or teeth.  Whether you are considering extracting a front tooth or all of your remaining teeth, an immediate partial or full denture can be made so that you do not have to be without teeth for any significant time.  Dentures can be upgraded at a later date to fixed prosthetic options such as implants or fixed ceramic bridges.  Talk to our dental team today to find out the best option for you.  


If your tooth can be extracted routinely, then our qualified staff will carry out the procedure in-house in an efficient and timely manner so you will be pain-free as soon as possible.  Minor surgical procedures may also be undertaken when a tooth is very badly damaged and requires a surgical extraction. 

After Treatment

After your tooth extraction, you will be given verbal and written instructions on how to care for the wound site when you get home.  Your dentist will organise a prescription for antibiotics and pain relief medication when needed.   If you require any further help or advice, we are just a phone call away. 

Complex Cases

Surgical Referrals

For complex surgical extraction cases, an urgent referral to an oral surgeon will be made for you.  Your dentist will prescribe you antibiotics and pain relief to take in the interim until you can be assessed by a specialist oral surgeon.  When pathology is suspected, your dentist will also send you to the oral surgeon for an initial assessment and a biopsy may be required to diagnose and subsequently treat the lesion or underlying condition.
