Do I need tooth extraction?

So how do you know whether you need a tooth extracted? Our experts can evaluate your circumstances and be honest about your treatment options. If we see no other recourse, we’ll recommend extraction under the following situations:

What are the different types of tooth extraction?

You’d think that removing a tooth would be the same in every case, but each one is just as unique as our individual patients. The location of the tooth, the depth and strength of the root, the reason for extraction, and other factors come into play and impact our strategy. In some cases, we can simply pull the tooth out with dental pliers. In others, we need to go beneath the gums or even break the tooth into smaller bits to get it out efficiently. Here is some general information about extraction types that we commonly deal with.

Wisdom Teeth

Between the ages of 16 and 22, your third molars grow in and potentially cause problems for your oral health. For instance, they may be impacted or positioned incorrectly, they may push your other teeth into misalignment, or they may lead to oral infections below the surface. No matter the situation, we’ll make sure you’re comfortable during the entire procedure.

Multiple Teeth

Sometimes, we need to extract more than one tooth at a time. If the case of extensive decay or damage, we will make the process as smooth and easy for you as possible to get your replacement teeth and full smile back. In order to allow for better orthodontic care, we may extract more than one tooth to help your overcrowded smile have the needed space to become the healthiest and most beautiful it can be.

Extraction Site Preservation

To replace missing teeth, many times dental implants are the most preferred option. They keep the jaw bone healthy and stimulated in the long run, but as soon as a tooth is extracted, the bone can start to lose density. That’s why we perform extraction site preservation, where we reinforce the bone with grafts so that it will be ready for your dental implant down the road.
