Tooth Extractions

In extreme cases where a tooth cannot be saved, an extraction will be performed. Please click on a link below for more information.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the molars that are farthest back in the mouth. These teeth are the last to grow into the mouth, usually after age 18. Wisdom teeth often become impacted - they do not grow in properly. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause a myriad of problems, including gum disease, infection, decay, even tumors. To prevent potential problems, wisdom teeth are usually extracted at the first sign that they may be impacted.

Infection

In cases of severe infection, where restorative approaches will not save a tooth, an extraction may be necessary.

Routine Extractions

Modern dentistry makes routine tooth extractions relatively comfortable, painless procedures. For seven days after the extraction, your tooth socket will require some care. You will be instructed to steer clear of the empty tooth socket when brushing your teeth. Some bleeding can be expected, and pain medication may be prescribed for residual discomfort.
