These reasons could include cavities, infections, and pain, just to name a few.
Teeth and wisdom teeth that can't be saved and can potentially cause problems, like pain and infections, need to be removed. Extractions can range from a single tooth, multiple teeth, or removing four wisdom teeth at once. You and your dentist can extract the tooth during a regular checkup or may request another visit for this procedure. Based on the preference of the patient and the doctor, a local anesthetic, nitrous gas, and or sedation will be used. Please view our sedation section under the technology tab for additional information.
Extractions especially wisdom teeth extractions are a common procedure. Wisdom teeth often cause problems as they are trying to protrude through the gums .When a wisdom tooth is impacted it means it may not have enough room to come completely into the mouth properly. When a wisdom tooth only emerges partially this can make the tooth hard to clean, and pieces of food may be caught under the skin and making it easy for an infection, swelling and pain to develop. Long story short Wisdom teeth can cause pain, swelling, infection, and even the loss of other healthy teeth. Our doctors can check your wisdom teeth for potential problems using a Panoramic X-ray and prevent the problems that wisdom teeth can bring you. Remember: DON'T WAIT TILL IT HURTS.
