A tooth may need to be removed due to a variety of reasons. At Vital Smiles, we only recommend a tooth extraction when it is in the best interest of your current or future dental health. Our Midfield family practice offers a wide variety of dental services for patients of all ages, including preventative dentistry, restorative dentistry and orthodontics. We are fully equipped to save a tooth that is damaged or diseased. However, there are cases in which the tooth damage may be too extensive to repair and the health of your adjacent teeth could be compromised. When removing a tooth, our dentists always implement the most refined techniques available so that the surrounding bone and tissues are preserved and your discomfort is minimized.
Tooth extractions may be necessary due to the following reasons:
- Severe Trauma or Disease
- Alleviate Crowding Before Orthodontic Treatment
- Impacted Wisdom Teeth
- Baby Teeth That Won’t Naturally Fall Out
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Our Midfield office also offers wisdom teeth removal. The wisdom teeth are the third and last set of molars to emerge. Unfortunately, they do not always cooperate in how they erupt and they don’t provide significant functional benefits to your smile. To prevent complications from impacted wisdom teeth or wisdom teeth that grow in sideways, it may be best to remove them. Extracting your wisdom teeth is a routine procedure that can be done in our office under local anesthesia. We also use advanced technology and technique to protect your comfort and accelerate your healing. The best time to schedule wisdom teeth removal is often between the ages of 18 and 24.
