Our number one priority at Genesis Family Dentistry is to save smiles. However, we must recognize when a damaged tooth is causing more harm than good. That is why we take tooth extractions so seriously.
A tooth extraction is the professional removal of a tooth. This isn’t as scary as it sounds, and can actually improve your oral health. There are several reason why a patient would need a tooth removed, including:
Third molars, also known as “wisdom teeth”, are one of the most common teeth to be extracted. Wisdom tooth extraction can take place before or after eruption but is oftentimes necessary because they get stuck and don’t come in how they should. If not removed early on, they can irritate gums, leading to pain and swelling.
In need of an extraction? Don’t wait to take care of it!
