As your trusted family dentist, it is always our mission to help all our patients care for and retain their natural teeth whenever possible. Modern dentistry offers countless treatment options for restoring damaged and diseased teeth. However, there are times when it is in the best interest of our patients to remove teeth if they are causing more harm than good. In such cases, a tooth extraction may be recommended.
Trauma and severe infection can both lead to the need for a tooth extraction. It is possible that when a tooth cannot be saved, leaving it in can put the patient’s health at risk. This means that a filling, root canal, crown or other procedure will not be enough to restore the integrity and health of a damaged tooth. When a tooth must be extracted, you can trust Family Smiles Dental for a comfortable atmosphere and caring dental professionals to put you at ease. We ensure you are not in pain during the procedure and give you instructions for home care to accelerate the healing process.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
It is not just infected or broken teeth that need to be removed. In fact, the most common tooth to be removed is brand new. The last molars to arrive, the wisdom teeth, are often the most problematic. They can push into an overcrowded mouth, causing alignment issues. They can also grow in sideways or become impacted in the gum. When wisdom teeth pose a problem to the oral health of the patient, it is best to have them removed.
Wisdom teeth usually arrive in the late teens or early twenties. To ensure they will not pose a problem, our dental team can closely monitor their development. If there is any reason for concern, we can remove the wisdom teeth to prevent any problems or pain down the road.
No one really wants to have a tooth removed. However, it is important to know that if it is necessary, your tooth removal process should not be painful or stressful. Our caring team at Family Smiles Dental offers a gentle and conservative approach to tooth extraction with options in sedation dentistry to keep you relaxed at every step.
