Teeth that are extensively decayed or infected, or which have lost a substantial part of the natural structure cannot always be saved and need removing. Other times, we may recommend tooth extraction in preparation for orthodontic treatment, creating enough room so your teeth can be moved into the correct positions. Partially erupted or impacted wisdom teeth can also cause problems, in which case we will recommend their extraction. Sometimes baby teeth may not fall out naturally and prevent the adult teeth from coming through and need extracting.
Tooth extraction may be necessary due to tooth decay, crooked or worn down teeth, and problematic or impacted wisdom teeth.
Wisdom Teeth and Impacted Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Partial eruption or complete impaction of the wisdom teeth usually happens when there is lack of space in the mouth or the teeth are not in an upright position. Impacted teeth fail to emerge at the exact position and become trapped in the jawbone and gums. This can lead to unexpected pain and may result in infections.
A careful review of your dental history and X-rays allows us to determine the condition of impacted wisdom teeth. After a thorough examination, if wisdom teeth are found to be problematic, an early extraction may be suggested to avoid further problems.
Extraction procedures may create minor pain, swelling and bleeding. And we may prescribe antibiotic treatment to control infection, swelling and discomfort. We also provide you with instructions and tips on how to take care of yourself at home.
