Extractions are always our last option — saving your smile is our number one priority. However, a problematic tooth is sometimes more trouble than it's worth. Your doctor may recommend an extraction as the best way to get your oral health back on the right path. With gentle techniques, and local anesthesia or sedation, decaying teeth can be removed to alleviate your discomfort or to make room for dental implants, a bridge, or another type of tooth replacement.
Why do I need a tooth extraction?
A tooth extraction may be necessary for a variety of reasons. Here are a few common situations where a tooth extraction may be recommended:
- Severe tooth decay:
If a tooth is severely decayed and cannot be saved with a filling or crown, extraction may be the best option to prevent further damage to your oral health.
- Impacted wisdom teeth:
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often become impacted or trapped in the jawbone. This can cause pain, infection, and damage to surrounding teeth. Removing impacted wisdom teeth can prevent future oral health problems.
In some cases, tooth extraction may be necessary to create space for orthodontic treatment. By removing a tooth, we can help align your teeth properly and improve your smile.
