Do you have a tooth that won’t stop bothering you? We can take a look and see how we can help. If your tooth has suffered too much damage or decay, or if your wisdom tooth is bothering you, an extraction may be the solution you need.
Why Would I Need a Tooth Extracted?
A patient may need a tooth extraction for one of several reasons, including:
- A stubborn baby tooth. Sometimes baby teeth need a little help moving out of the way to make room for adult teeth.
- Spreading tooth decay. When decay has spread and destroyed the tooth root, the tooth no longer has an anchor to keep it in the mouth.
- Problematic wisdom teeth. Most people don’t have room for this extra set of teeth in your mouth, and this makes them become impacted—or painfully stuck below the gums and trying to emerge.
Before we consider an extraction for a permanent tooth, we try every other option. A root canal may often save your tooth, or you may need a cavity filled. However, if you do need an extraction, we perform the treatment with the utmost care and compassion.
Baby Teeth and Permanent Teeth
Children start to lose their baby teeth around age six or seven. Occasionally, a child will have a baby tooth that won’t want to come out. This can cause problems for the adult teeth, causing them to come in sideways, crooked, or not at all.
This can be painful for your child, so if you hear a complaint about tooth pain, don’t hesitate to make an appointment. Extracting a baby tooth can be simple, and we are here to help your child feel as relaxed as possible.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Humans have an extra set of teeth because we needed them centuries ago. Now, however, the teeth don’t fit in our mouths, which can cause many problems when they try to erupt. They can cause pain and discomfort by being impacted below the gums or by erupting and overcrowding your other teeth.
