There are several reasons a tooth may need to be removed:
- A tooth needs to be removed when it is too badly broken, cracked, or decayed.
- As part of orthodontic treatment, a permanent tooth may need to be removed in order to alleviate severe crowding.
- Impacted teeth (most commonly the wisdom teeth) are also many times removed in order to prevent future problems.
At Dentistry At University Downs, we can complete many required tooth extractions. We can also offer you various forms of dental sedation during the extraction appointment to ensure your total comfort, if you desire. However, for more complex situations, we work closely with local oral and maxillofacial surgeon specialists and make appropriate referrals to them as needed.
