Wisdom Tooth Removal Here In Wetaskiwin
Dr. Mahoney and our team are dedicated to helping you achieve a smile that lasts, and we’ll do everything in our power to preserve your natural teeth. However, sometimes a tooth extraction can be critical to your overall well-being and can help preserve your oral health.
When a tooth is jeopardizing your safety, or the health of your other teeth, Dr. Mahoney and our team will perform a professional tooth extraction for your protection.
When A Tooth Extraction Is Necessary
Having teeth pulled can seem like a frightening prospect, but it is actually necessary, at times, to preserve your oral health. Depending on your unique situation, we may remove a severely decayed tooth, particularly those teeth that have become loose due to bone loss. Sometimes, this is the best way to keep the infection from spreading to your other teeth.
Similarly, if the infection in your tooth is severe enough that it could spread into your bloodstream and cause other serious health problems, it will be important for us to pull your tooth. Remember that having your teeth pulled does not need to be painful or problematic; we will do our utmost to make it comfortable and safe!
The Tooth Removal Procedure
When you come in to have your teeth pulled, Dr. Mahoney will begin by professionally numbing the area. Once your mouth is sufficiently numb, you should feel only pressure when the tooth is removed.
Dr. Mahoney and our staff will do everything we can to make you feel comfortable throughout the tooth removal procedure. After your tooth is removed, Dr. Mahoney will discuss your restorative options for immediate tooth replacement.
Tooth Extractions and Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom tooth removal may be necessary in cases where the wisdom tooth is negatively impacting your oral health. Under certain conditions, wisdom teeth that are not removed can develop periodontal pockets that jeopardize your other molars. If wisdom teeth are causing oral health issues, we can remove them.
Impacted wisdom teeth push against the other teeth in your mouth, causing serious damage, tooth pain, and other problems. If your wisdom teeth have already become impacted, Dr. Mahoney will refer you to an oral surgeon who can perform a wisdom tooth removal procedure.
