There are many reasons a tooth may need to be extracted, or removed, including when the health of a tooth has been compromised beyond repair or if there is extreme overcrowding of the teeth. Removing broken down teeth, root tips, or teeth with long-curved roots are examples of tooth extractions.In order to confirm if one or more teeth needs to be removed, we will need an x-ray and thorough examination to determine whether your extraction will be simple or surgical.
Removing the wisdom teeth is a common surgical procedure where we remove anywhere between one and four permanent adult teeth which are located in the back corners of the mouth. When these teeth run out of room to grow, they become impacted which can cause pain, infections, or other dental issues. In these cases, the teeth need to be pulled in order to prevent other serious medical complications.
