One of the primary aspects of any dental procedure is to save as much of your tooth as possible. But sometimes, this cannot always be done, especially when your tooth is severely damaged or infected. In circumstances like this, we will help you make an informed decision by discussing all your treatment options and will make every effort to make your tooth extraction comfortable.
Wisdow Teeth Extractions
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth — the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom.
If a wisdom tooth doesn't have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, you'll likely need to pull it. A general dentist or an oral surgeon may perform wisdom tooth extraction. To prevent potential future problems, some dentists and oral surgeons recommend wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth aren't currently causing problems. You'll likely need your wisdom tooth pulled if it results in problems such as:
Trapping food and debris behind the wisdom tooth
Infection or gum disease (periodontal disease)
Tooth decay in a partially erupted wisdom tooth
Damage to a nearby tooth or surrounding bone
Development of a fluid-filled sac (cyst) around the wisdom tooth
Complications with orthodontic treatments to straighten other teeth
