Do You Need a Tooth Extraction?
Tooth extractions are the most common form of oral surgery services in our office. There are many reasons you may need a tooth removed, such as…
- Primary teeth blocking permanent ones
- An impacted or partially-erupted wisdom tooth
- Teeth damaged by trauma, fracture, or decay
- Orthodontic treatment requiring removal of teeth to achieve your optimal bite
Removing Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth can easily grow in at an incorrect angle, putting pressure on your other teeth. Just in the way that pressure from orthodontic braces can slowly push your teeth into an ideal position, the pressure from wisdom teeth can gradually shift the rest of your teeth out of alignment. The crooked appearance of your teeth will be the least of your problems, though. Misaligned teeth can result in lifelong jaw pain, headaches, and other issues.
If you experience any of the following symptoms at home between your preventative dental appointments, we recommend that you schedule an examination with our team:
- Jaw pain or tenderness
- Bad taste when you bite down on food
- Red or swollen gums
- Persistent bad breath
During your exam, our dentist will evaluate the state of your wisdom teeth as part of your dental exam. We will determine whether your symptoms are related to the state of your wisdom teeth or another potential dental issue. If your wisdom teeth show signs of being impacted or erupting incorrectly, you will be advised to have them extracted as soon as possible. In this way, we can help you avoid the early painful signs of wisdom teeth problems.
If you have uncomfortable dentures or are self-conscious about your missing teeth, a dental implant may be your best option. With a dental implant, our dentist inserts a titanium rod directly into the jawbone where your tooth root would normally be. Once your gums are fully healed, we then attach an abutment, or post, followed by a matching porcelain crown to create your new permanent tooth. While many dentists do not have the skill or experience with the dental implant procedure, our dentists have had extensive training and experience with dental implantation.
