Common Reasons for Tooth Extraction
- Severe Injury: Typically, broken teeth are repaired with crowns. However, if a tooth has been broken in a way that prevents it from supporting a restoration, it will have to be extracted instead.
- Infection: Root canal therapy is generally the first choice for dealing with a severe infection, but the tooth may need to be removed if it’s beyond salvaging.
- Impaction: A tooth that can’t break through the gum line will need to be removed before it starts causing irreversible damage. This is often the case for wisdom teeth.
How Tooth Extractions Work
Most extractions can be done relatively quickly. An instrument called an elevator is used to loosen the tooth from the bone before we gently remove it with forceps. In the event that the tooth did not grow in fully or doesn’t have enough structure left to grasp with forceps, it might be necessary to push back the gums and remove some of the surrounding bone so that the extraction will be performed. In any case, your mouth will be numbed for your comfort. We also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to provide a more comfortable experience.
