Do you suffer from overcrowded teeth? Experiencing complications with your wisdom teeth? Have severely decayed, damaged or even infected teeth in your smile? Although our ultimate goal at Prime Dental is to preserve and protect smiles, certain situations may require a tooth extraction for the best outcome. Prime Dental is proud to offer wisdom tooth removal, simple tooth extractions and even surgical tooth extractions depending upon your exact needs. Not sure if you need a tooth extraction? We often recommend extracting teeth to address:
Think you or a loved one may need a tooth extraction? Feel free to schedule an appointment, we’d be happy to provide a consultation to determine if a tooth extraction is the best option for your smile.
When teeth have properly erupted, are fully visible and do not suffer from extreme damage, decay or infection, a simple tooth extraction may be recommended. During a simple tooth extraction, an elevator is used to first gently loosen the affected tooth, forceps are then used to fully remove it.
If the affected tooth has not properly erupted, is not visible or suffers from decay, infection or damage, a surgical tooth extraction may be required. Although quite similar to a simple tooth extraction, during a surgical tooth extraction an incision may be made to access the tooth. The affected tooth may also have to be broken in order to be fully removed.
Wisdom teeth are the most common reason our patient’s need a tooth extraction due to the fact they often become impacted. Prime Dental would be happy to evaluate your smile to determine if wisdom tooth removal is recommended.
