Emergency Tooth Extraction
Do you need a tooth extraction? Many patients fear dental extraction the most out of all dental care treatments. But with sedation dentistry and our dentists’ commitment to patient-focused care, we can ensure a smooth and comfortable tooth extraction.
Our dentists recommend a dental extraction in case of severe tooth decay, which a root canal, crown, and other restorative treatments cannot treat:
- The tooth has broken down
- The decay has progressed to the jawbones and caused a loss in bone density
- The decay has started to spread and affect adjacent healthy teeth.
In case of these severe dental problems, tooth extraction is the best way to treat the damage, and keep the rest of your teeth and gums strong and healthy.
Once your mouth has healed, our dentists can discuss with you options to restore normal oral functions like biting, chewing, and eating, with restorations that look and function like your natural teeth.
Wisdom Tooth Removal – Extract Impacted and Crowded Wisdom Teeth
For most people, pain is the number one sign that wisdom teeth have erupted. Wisdom teeth cause pain when they are impacted, or there is not enough room for them to grow. When left in, they can cause overcrowding that affects healthy adjacent teeth. Our dentists track the growth of your wisdom teeth and book an extraction, or perform an emergency surgical removal if your symptoms become severe.
Are you worried about the pain? When left untreated, wisdom teeth can cause severe oral health problems. Our dentists use sedation dentistry to successfully remove your wisdom teeth before these problems occur:
- Impaction: Wisdom teeth removal is needed when these molars are trapped in the jaw or gums, causing extreme pain and discomfort. In severe cases left untreated, cysts can even form, causing infection that spreads to other teeth.
- Cavities and gum disease: Molars grow in the back of the mouth, making them hard to reach and clean thoroughly. Plus, some wisdom teeth remain partially hidden within the gums, making them prone to cavities, gum disease, and infections.
- Overcrowding: The sudden growth of wisdom teeth can disrupt the even spacing and alignment of your teeth, causing painful overcrowding that can also affect the integrity and shape of adjacent teeth.
