There are many reasons that you may need a tooth or teeth extracted.
- To make room for dentures or orthodontics
- To remove damaged teeth, due to an advanced infection
- Wisdom teeth that have become 'impacted'
Impacted wisdom teeth can become problematic when they negatively influence surrounding teeth, causing discomfort, pain and injury. An impacted wisdom tooth refers to your upper or lower third molar, which erupts improperly, in terms of pushing its way into the mouth by shifting neighboring teeth out of their position. This can cause teeth to over crowd and can offer some degree of pain.
Artdent Family Dentistry only recommends having a tooth pulled in the most necessary cases - such as for an impacted wisdom tooth - and we’ll examine all your options before recommending, let alone performing one.
