Although most people only have one set of permanent adult teeth to last their entire life, sometimes a tooth extraction, or a few, is necessary to preserve the long-term health of your teeth.
Some typical reasons for teeth extractions include:
- A crowded mouth (extraction of wisdom teeth)
- Severe tooth infection
- Irreversible trauma or fractured tooth
For cosmetic purposes, many patients who undergo orthodontic treatment to realign his or her teeth may have to extract a few teeth to create space for realignment.
Although tooth extractions are commonly heard of in dental offices, it is typically regarded as the last resort for any treatment plan. A tooth extraction is commonly performed when a tooth has been damaged, fractured, or decayed beyond repair.
Our office provides our patients with the most comfortable and painless experience with dental extractions. Post-operational care and instructions are then provided to the patients for a quality and timely recovery.
