As the name suggests, tooth extraction is a simple process where a damaged or infected tooth is carefully removed to prevent the spread of infection. Generally, we apply a local anesthetic, to make the procedure painless for you. In some cases where more than a few teeth have to be extracted, we might even use a general anesthetic.
Usually, tooth extraction is recommended when no other procedure will stop the spread of infection. This occurs in cases where a tooth might be infected by gum disease, or it might be damaged beyond repair by trauma. Other reasons include periodontitis or when an extra permanent tooth grows in the path of your permanent tooth line. In cases where tooth extraction has been recommended, it should be carried out as soon as possible to avoid further complications. You can find out more about dental health on our blog.

We use a Panoramic X-ray machine that helps us easily identify the placement of your wisdom teeth.
