Tooth extraction is sometimes unavoidable. A tooth may need to be extracted if broken or if it is damaged by decay. If possible we will try to fix it with a filling, a crown or some other treatment. Sometimes the tooth cannot be saved and must be removed.
Wisdom teeth (also called third molars) are often extracted either before or after they erupt. This usually happens in late teens or early 20s.
Impacted wisdom teeth are teeth that are stuck in the jaw and can't erupt properly. They must be removed if they are decayed or cause pain.
Some wisdom teeth are blocked by other teeth or there may be no room for them to erupt. This can irritate the gum, causing pain and swelling.
At Gentle Dental Care you may wish to have your extraction carried out under IV sedation to minimize pain and discomfort. If the removal is likely to result in an unsightly gap your dentist may discuss the options of replacing the missing tooth with an implant or a bridge to restore your original smile.
