Dental extraction is common for teeth that do not develop or emerge properly. The procedure is needed from time to time to keep your other, healthy teeth safe.
Your wisdom teeth are most often the focus of an extraction. Crooked teeth, crowded teeth, broken teeth, decayed teeth, or teeth that have developed improperly can also be extracted.
Your adjoining teeth can be damaged if a tooth develops at an angle or emerges crooked. A tooth extraction makes room for your healthy teeth to develop and stay properly aligned.
A dental extraction is an oral surgery procedure. Depending on the condition of your teeth, it can be completed within a few minutes.
You will be provided with local anesthesia and/or the available sedation method during your treatment. This will help you relax and have a more comfortable experience.
A proper healing period will follow your extraction. Additional dental treatment will be recommended to fill in your missing tooth gap and preserve the health of your surrounding teeth and gums.
