5 Reasons Why to Choose Us

Children’s Dentistry

Decay that leads to extractions

Lillybrook Dental takes a conservative approach to children’s dentistry, considering tooth extraction only if absolutely necessary.

Many factors are taken into account when extraction becomes advisable, including: decay, impacted teeth, trauma and orthodontics:

Decay is among one of the primary reasons a child may need a dental extraction. Other factors are:

  • Whether the tooth is decayed beyond repair, in which case restorative dental work would not be successful
  • When there is pain from infection or abscess
  • Lifespan of the tooth: whether it needs to be treated multiple times and how long before the adult tooth comes through


Orthodontic factors

In some cases, extraction of teeth may be necessary as part of orthodontic treatment. This may occur because of:

  • Overcrowded teeth, when there’s a need to create space in the mouth that cannot be achieved by other orthodontic treatment
  • Impacted teeth: teeth that don’t erupt or come through may be impacted. Diagnosed by X-ray, the orthodontist will advise if this is necessary
  • Extra teeth – From time to time, a patient will have extra baby or adult teeth, which can cause crowding
  • Ectopic teeth – When a tooth erupts in an unexpected position


Trauma can mean tooth extraction

Trauma can also mean the need for an extraction. We would consult with you when a tooth has been badly damaged beyond repair. Factors we consider before extraction include:

  • Sometimes when the baby tooth may have to be removed before the adult successor tooth is ready to follow, we use space maintainers to preserve the space for the adult tooth to prevent adjacent teeth from drifting in and closing the space
  • Everything will be done to save an adult tooth; it is rare to remove an adult tooth
  • How the direction the tooth has been pushed impacts on bite and chew function; whether other teeth are affected; and other impacts on facial bones and lacerations. X-rays will reveal the extent.

Children’s Dentistry

How is a child’s tooth extraction done?

Straightforward extractions can be done in our practice using local anaesthetic or happy gas for patient comfort and to allay the child’s fears. More complex cases or those involving extraction of multiple teeth may require surgical removal. Should this be the case, Lillybrook Dental will help facilitate the process.

I’ve been to many different dentists over the years, and I would have to say that this is up there with the best! The staff are so professional, and yet so very friendly. The dentist himself, was also very friendly and did such a great job. I would highly recommend this dental surgery


I can’t recommend Dr Raj and the team at Lillybrook Dental enough! I was 35 weeks pregnant and developed a terrible toothache (the worst timing!), they fit me in quickly and did everything they could to save the tooth, giving me all options and no pressure. I ended up needing a root canal and crown and was very upset and worried about the pain, they reassured me and despite the outcome for my tooth I had a great experience. The crown has been fitted and I am so happy with the end product. Highly recommend!


Having been to various practices over time, and addressing issues with a “patch-up” approach, it was time to consult with a Dentist who could advise on a treatment plan that would provide longterm results. A friend recommended Lillybrook Dental. After a very thorough initial appointment Dr Raj put together a staged treatment plan to restore my teeth to their former glory. Six months later, thanks to Dr Raj and his team, I have my smile back. Most importantly I can eat the food I want without any fear of causing days of pain to my teeth or gums. I am so glad I put my trust in Lillybrook Dental. Thanks!


From the moment I walked in until the moment I left I felt very cared for by all of the staff I encountered. Everything was explained in detail as to what my options were and what the best choice would be for my treatmemt. Extremely accommodating and so kind, I felt completely at ease. With payment options such as Afterpay, Zippay and Openpay available, making it much more comfortable when it comes time to pay the bill.


I am a very anxious patient and Dr Raji is very calming and gentle in her care with me. She is also very patient with me and would highly recommend coming to Lillybrook Dental Surgery as the whole crew is lovely !


Now I’m terrified when it comes to dentists!

They girls at lillybrook dental took a terrible experience I had last week with another dentist (I was a crying mess) and now I have a clean plan on what needs to be done from here out!!

Dr Raj, Shevaux and the girls were so fantastic, understanding, helpful and explained everything in a way I could understand!
I’m so very grateful for all your help!

I highly recommend Lillybrook Dental Surgery!
5 out of 5 stars without a doubt!!


Dr Raj and his team are always gentle, professional and very efficient. My husband and I have both had extractions done and Raj is so proficient at this.

The team are so kind and assuring as well which helps you feel calm. We totally recommend them for all your family dental care.


I have nothing put praise for the friendliness of Ena on the front desk she is just the right person for the job. Then we have Dr Raj who has been very kind and gentle with doing any dental work on my teeth. He explains every bit of work that needs to be done in layman terms which is great and his dental nurse is very caring.

Thanks for the great experience and will continue visiting your Surgery .


Had an amazing experience at Lillybrook Dental after not seeing a dentist for years. All of the staff were very welcoming and supportive throughout the whole session. Couldn’t recommend them enough


We are so pleased with our experience at Lillybrook Dental – the whole team is so professional and friendly, and are particularly wonderful in dealing with children. We felt comfortable throughout our whole experience – the waiting area is calming and welcoming, and the staff were quick to set nerves at ease. We felt that we received the highest standard of dental care – highly recommended.
