We perform tooth extractions, including wisdom teeth and simple extractions. The most common reasons for tooth extractions are severe tooth decay and impacted wisdom teeth. Extractions are also done in cases where teeth are crowded and it will help with orthodontics.
Tooth extractions can be simple or they can more complicated, even requiring surgery in some cases. For example, if a tooth is impacted deep within the gum or palate a simple extraction technique might not be possible. There are also cases where a tooth has been broken off by the root and cannot be extracted without surgery.
If you require a dental extraction, you will be examined to determine the most appropriate procedure for you.
