At BlueStem Dental, our award-winning team will work hard to save and restore your tooth. In some cases, however, a tooth extraction may be necessary to preserve your overall dental health. If you’re suffering from a severely injured or infected tooth, our dentist may recommend extraction. We also offer wisdom tooth extractions.
Do I Need a Tooth Extraction?
Third molars, or wisdom teeth, are the last set of permanent molars to emerge. These teeth are also the most likely to require extraction, due to any of several complications. However, other teeth may also require extraction if they cannot be saved by root canal treatment or other tooth-saving procedures.
Some of the most common reasons to have teeth extracted include:
- Impacted tooth: When the tooth is trapped beneath bone or gums and not emerging properly.
- Crowding or small mouth: Emerging teeth may cause other teeth to shift or crack due to lack of space.
- Decay or infection: When a tooth is affected by extreme decay or infection that cannot be corrected with filling or root canal treatment, it may require extraction.
Our doctors may recommend extraction of one or more of your teeth if any of these issues apply to you. During your consultation, we may also recommend sedation dentistry to make your experience more comfortable.
