At our office, we believe that a tooth extraction is the last resort. An extraction is indicated when a tooth is too severely decayed, broken down, or infected and it cannot be saved. Our doctors can help you determine whether a tooth needs to be extracted and will remove it safely and comfortably. The different options of tooth replacement will be discussed with you. Many times, a tooth can replaced with an implant or a bridge.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Although most people develop and grow 32 permanent adult teeth, many times their jaws are too small to accommodate the four wisdom teeth. When inadequate space prevents the teeth from erupting they are called impacted. This indicates their inability to erupt into the proper position for chewing and cleaning.
We will need to see you for a consultation to determine if you will benefit from wisdom tooth removal. A special x-ray of your mouth and jaws (panorex) will be taken to determine if your wisdom teeth are impacted, if there is room for them to erupt, and how difficult it will be to have them removed.
