Reasons You May Require Tooth Extraction
Dr. Henderson practices conservative dentistry, only removing a tooth if decay is too severe or surrounding structures may be threatened.
Wisdom tooth removal is a primary reason for this treatment, as most patients do not have enough room in their smiles to support their growth. Also known as third molars, wisdom teeth can cause a multitude of dental complications, such as:
- Overcrowding - a harmful lack of space that does not allow teeth to fit properly into the jaw.
- Tooth Impaction – when a permanent tooth does not fully erupt which may result in pain and bite misalignment.
- Dental Infection – when bacterial pockets develop in partially erupted molars.
Aside from third molars causing potential oral health issues, extraction may be necessary if a tooth has extensive decay. Our dentist removes the afflicted tooth to eliminate the source of your discomfort and protect surrounding teeth from developing an infection.
Comprehensive Extraction Treatment from Dr. Henderson
By initiating your extraction treatment with a thorough examination and professional cleanings, our team tailors each procedure to fit your exact needs. During comprehensive dental examinations, we perform a detailed assessment of your teeth and gums, making sure that there are no other means of treatment to save the affected tooth before recommending extraction.
Dr. Henderson provides personalized care for your unique and specific situation, offering both gentle wisdom tooth and single tooth extractions.
