“Does My Tooth Need to be Pulled?”

  • Severe periodontal (gum) disease
  • A dental emergency
  • Painful abscesses or swelling
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Extensive tooth loss, requiring full mouth reconstruction

(Be sure to plan on replacing your tooth afterward, to preserve natural biting patterns and tooth alignment. Dental implants are an excellent option to consider.)

Wisdom Tooth Surgery

The third set of molars (“wisdom teeth”) typically start to come in during the mid-teen years. They often cause problems for older teens and young adults if there is not enough space in their jaw for the tooth to fully erupt.

When a wisdom tooth becomes impacted in the bone or against the next tooth, it can lead to complications such as decay, gum disease, pain and swelling. Additionally, the pressure they place on adjacent teeth can cause overall crowding throughout the mouth.

Sedation Available Upon Request

Treatments such as an extraction or wisdom tooth removal surgery are quite common, yet they can cause some anxiety for individuals who feel nervous about seeing a dentist.

To ease the experience for our patients, we offer sedation dentistry as a way to further calm their mind and facilitate a more comfortable experience.
