Extractions Here

Dental extractions are performed on a severely decayed or damaged tooth that needs to be removed from the mouth entirely. Since the procedure can be painful, we will administer local anesthesia before commencing, as it helps to numb the oral tissues. Extracting the tooth keeps you from experiencing prolonged pain and protects the adjoining teeth and tissues from also getting infected.

  • Damaged Teeth - Suffering external trauma to the mouth can lead to the teeth being chipped, cracked, or broken. Leaving them untreated can cause a lot of pain and would allow the oral bacteria to enter the central root canal cavity. We will conduct a thorough diagnosis to determine if medication and restorations could restore the tooth. But if the damage is severe, we will need to extract the tooth entirely.
  • Decayed Teeth - Cavities are caused by the erosion of the enamel by microbes in the mouth. They release toxins that decay the underlying dentin and cause severe cavities. If left untreated, cavities can advance onto the central root canal cavity and infect the dental pulp. The tooth may have to be removed to keep the decay from spreading and infecting the oral tissues.
  • Impacted Teeth - Teeth that are stuck in the jawbone while erupting are called impacted teeth. In most cases, the wisdom teeth tend to get impacted because the teeth are bigger than the jawbone socket. Impacted teeth can cause severe pain and discomfort and result in infection if left untreated. More importantly, they can cause damage to the underlying jawbone and adjoining teeth. Hence, impacted teeth need to be extracted.
  • Crowding - Crowding is a type of malocclusion where the teeth overlap each other due to a smaller dental ridge. It can make oral hygiene difficult and also increases the chances of developing cavities, with microbes and food residues getting stuck between the teeth. When you visit the dentist to get the malocclusion treated, they recommend removing teeth on either side of the jaw. It helps make more space for the existing teeth to move to their correct orthodontics positions.
