If you require oral surgery to extract a damaged or infected tooth or remove wisdom teeth, you can feel confident in the skills of our dentists at myDental.
Tooth extraction may be necessary for several reasons. An extraction is commonly performed when a tooth is impacted or when teeth need to be removed prior to orthodontic procedures (such as wisdom teeth removal).
You may need to have a tooth removed if it is broken, cracked, or decayed beyond repair, or when a tooth is so badly positioned that straightening is impossible. Tooth extraction may be required when root canal therapy, crowns, or fillings are not an option.
Prior to any extraction procedure, our dentists will sedate you with nitrous oxide to help make the procedure more comfortable. With modern dental methods, you may only experience minor discomfort and bleeding.
Anytime you have a tooth removed (other than for orthodontic reasons), we will recommend a restorative procedure to replace it, such as a crown, bridge, or dental implant. Replacing a tooth that has been extracted is important for restoring function and your smile.
After a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth, our dentists will determine if an extraction is necessary. To schedule a visit at one of our convenient locations, call us or use our online form to request an appointment.
