Sometimes despite all efforts to save a tooth, it may still need to be extracted. Deep tooth decay or untreated infection can lead to extraction. Impacted teeth or those causing other teeth to have issues may need to be extracted as well. We typically remove teeth in the office, but we do offer referrals for patients with impacted wisdom teeth and for those wishing to be IV sedated. We’ve built strong relationships with several oral surgeons and recommend them whenever necessary.
Why You Might Need a Dental Extraction
Our primary goal is to save your teeth for your lifetime. Prevention is the best way to avoid losing a permanent tooth. These situations often require an extraction:
- Impacted Teeth – teeth that are stuck beneath the gums and cannot grow out.
- Teeth Crowding – teeth bunch together since there’s not enough room in the mouth.
- Tooth Decay – when a tooth is decayed and unable to be repaired.
