Having a tooth pulled is an understandably traumatic experience. Sometimes, if treatment is not received for a cracked or broken tooth, or a tooth cavity, teeth can die or degenerate to where they need to be removed. Tooth extraction is almost always the last option, but in some circumstances, it is necessary to protect you from the potential spreading of bacterial infection.

At Chesterville Dental, our team can make sure that your tooth extraction experience is pain-free and as comfortable as possible.  You’ll be stepped through the procedure, as well as how to get the best results during the healing process.

So, if you want a tooth extraction process that doesn’t feel like pulling teeth, contact us today to book your dental appointment in Bentleigh East.

Before & After Procedures


FAQ About Emergency Dental Pain Relief


There are two different varieties of tooth extraction procedures, which will be dictated by the complexity of your required removal. The two different procedures can be referred to as simple extractions and surgical extractions. find out more from our Tooth Extraction FAQ below.

What is a Simple Extraction?

The less invasive of the two tooth extraction procedure types, a simple extraction will require a local anesthetic to numb the local area of the tooth through the extraction process. From there, the tooth will then be loosened and removed.

What is a Surgical Extraction?

This is often a more complicated procedure and will also require a local anesthetic to numb the local area of the tooth through the extraction process to ensure that you remain comfortable throughout. While this won’t always be necessary, your dentist or surgeon may have to remove bone or cut into the gums while removing your tooth.

How Much Will It Hurt?

Tooth extraction can be unpleasant, but also virtually painless. Here at our Bentleigh East clinic, we have incorporated many modern techniques to help reduce your discomfort as much as possible during dental treatment. We always include the use of topical anaesthetic when necessary and our “computer-guided tooth anaesthesia system” also known as “the wand”.

How Long Will It Take for a Tooth Extraction to Heal?

With appropriate care, it will take approximately 1 to 2 weeks for the wound site to heal from a tooth extraction.

Keep the extraction wound as clean as possible and contact your dentist at any sign of infection.

When Would I need a Tooth Extraction?

The most common reason for tooth extraction is when the wisdom teeth of young adults are compacted causing pain or onset of decay. Otherwise, adults may need to have a tooth extracted because it is severely broken, or because of extreme tooth decay or gum disease.

There are usually many other options to save the tooth before needing to resort to a tooth extraction.
