In only the most extreme and necessary cases—such as when its roots are damaged beyond repair—we may extract a tooth in preparation for a restorative dentistry procedure, such as dentures or implants.
The benefit of having a tooth or teeth extracted
- Relieve you from pain – Tooth decay or an infection that has reached the root is the most common reason why a tooth needs to be removed.
- Extractions can save your neighbouring teeth – If a tooth has been infected and is not treated appropriately, the infection can spread to neighbouring teeth. In some instances removing one problematic tooth can save your other teeth.
Wisdom teeth can impact the jawbone, causing the potential for discomfort, distortion or damage to nearby teeth, gums or bone. Extractions can be done with or without IV Sedation. Call us for more details at 403-646-2465.
