Centrepointe Dental specializes in tooth extraction. If you are suffering from tooth pain, it is important that you speak with one of our dentists to evaluate your condition immediately.
How does it work?
In certain cases, where teeth are damaged or fractured beyond repair, or when a tooth abscess or infection arises, the causative tooth may need to be extracted. Removing the damaged tooth will likely lead to a restorative dental procedure, such as implants. The good news is, that with the help of anaesthetics and sedatives, discomfort or pain becomes a thing of the past.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Many people within the population will at some point experience having their wisdom teeth extracted. Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars, in the very back of the mouth. Some people do not have wisdom teeth and others will never need them removed. Regardless, for most people, wisdom teeth have become redundant as we have evolved over time.
A classic situation demanding wisdom teeth removal is a tooth growing too close to its neighbouring permanent teeth. This proximity can cause teeth crowding, misalignments and other dental problems. If you are experiencing pain, tenderness or an infection, you may need to have a dentist assess the condition. Without treatment, wisdom teeth can become impacted and can cause other serious dental issues.
