Extractions & Wisdom Teeth

It may sound counterintuitive, but extractions are sometimes the best way to keep your teeth healthy. Extractions are designed to help reduce pain and prevent jaw problems and crooked teeth in the future. It can be a huge benefit both now and in the future.

We will always do everything we can to help you keep your natural teeth, but when an extraction is your best option, we can do regular teeth and wisdom teeth extractions quickly and efficiently in our office.

When Are Extractions Necessary?

The reasons for an extraction will vary person to person. Generally speaking, however, it’s a good idea to have a tooth extracted if it is infected badly enough that a root canal won’t be able to restore it, or if the tooth is causing its neighbors to become misaligned or crooked.

We also often recommend having wisdom teeth removed before they have grown in, simply because more often than not, these teeth cause problems when they appear. We treat every patient’s wisdom teeth on a case by case basis, but extracting these wisdom teeth early is usually an effective way to avoid misaligned or impacted teeth in the future.

What Is the Extraction Process?

We’ll explain every step of the procedure, including the whys and hows, and we will always walk you through the process and answer any questions you might have about your extraction.

We always have a qualified nurse on hand if IV sedation is being performed for your extraction. Our sedation dentistry methods will make sure you don’t feel any pain or anxiety during your procedure, and you will be on the road to recovery soon!
