Tooth removal is a common dental procedure that involves the extraction of the entire tooth from its socket. This means that both the crown and the root are removed. Here at Bramwest Family Dental, we perform two types of extractions: simple removal and surgical extraction. For fully-erupted tool, your Brampton ON dentist will use specialized tools to lift the tooth from its socket gently. This is a simple extraction. But for an impacted tooth or one that has not yet emerged, surgical extraction is needed. Surgical tooth removal is usually performed under intravenous anesthesia. This type of IV sedation prevents trauma and discomfort. After an extraction, it is important to replace the missing tooth with a dental bridge or implant.
Typically, extractions are the last resort to restore oral health. At Bramwest Family Dental, we only remove teeth that are too severely damaged to be saved. In other cases, leaving an injured or diseased tooth in place will cause more harm than good. Primarily, there are four main reasons why your dentist in Brampton, ON may recommend tooth extraction:
Many people undergo surgical extraction of their wisdom teeth to avoid crowding. In some cases, there is not enough room in the jaw bone to fit the wisdom teeth. These third molars either get impacted in the bone or surgically extracted. For some people, wisdom teeth erupt at an improper angle.
If you have an infected or badly decayed tooth, or if your wisdom teeth need to be removed, contact our dentist near you at Bramwest Family Dental. Sometimes tooth extraction is the safest way to protect your overall health.
