At Park Square Dental Centre, our dentists perform tooth extractions and wisdom tooth removals when it's not possible to save a natural tooth.
A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone.
Our dentists will always try to save a natural tooth, but in some circumstances, it won't be possible.
Severe decay, gum disease, or injury can result in a tooth that is too damaged to save and will need to be removed.
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that come in at the back of the upper and lower jaw in adults. Often, they erupt too close to existing teeth, causing crowding, improper bites, and other problems.
If your wisdom teeth are causing issues, your dentist may suggest extracting them to prevent further issues and preserve the overall health of your mouth.
Your dentist will work to save a natural tooth whenever possible. However, there are circumstances, such as significant injury, gum disease, or excessive decay, which can make extraction necessary.
Your dentist will discuss tooth replacement options with you, which may include dental bridges or dental crowns.
