Tooth Extractions

Do you have a tooth that needs to be removed?
Don’t worry, we can help.

Your dentist’s main priority is to always help restore, save, and repair your natural teeth. However, sometimes a tooth extraction is unavoidable.

What Is a Tooth Extraction?

A tooth extraction is the removal of your tooth from its socket in the bone. It is typically performed by an oral surgeon. Prior to extraction, you will likely receive a local anesthetic to numb the area and reduce pain.

Do I Need My Tooth Extracted?

Your third molars, or wisdom teeth, are the last set of permanent molars to emerge. Due to several complications, these teeth are also the most likely to require extraction. However, other teeth may also need to be extracted for other reasons, including:

Impacted tooth
Your tooth is trapped beneath bone or gums, which prohibits it from emerging properly.
Crowding or small mouth
Emerging teeth may cause other teeth to shift or crack due to lack of space.
Decay or infection
When a tooth is affected by extreme decay or infection and can’t be corrected with a filling or root canal therapy, it may require extraction.
