Unfortunately, sometimes teeth need to be removed. Even though you are taking good care of your teeth, there can be many reasons a tooth extraction is required. Deep cavities, infection, severe bone loss, and cracking a tooth could be one of the reasons you need a tooth extraction. We will ensure you are comfortable throughout the process and ensure we take the proper steps to fix your smile!
Wisdom Teeth are nonsignificant teeth in your mouth. It is common to have up to four wisdom teeth; in some cases, if the wisdom teeth aren't removed they can cause discomfort or disease! Wisdom teeth can sometimes erupt if not removed due to a lack of space in the jaw. Around the ages of 17 to 25 are when wisdom teeth begin to show themselves. We at Uptown Dental will ensure that the removal process is comfortable and safe. It is a standard procedure, and we want to make it as painless and effective as possible!
How do I Know if I Need Removal?
For tooth extractions and wisdom teeth, we check your teeth and take the proper steps to determine if you require removal. X-rays allow us to see the position of your wisdom teeth and assess if an eruption will occur. We will be with you every step, ensuring you know all your options and have a safe, painless removal!
We are a family practice and encourage you to bring in your children and teens. Getting them assessed at a young age could be beneficial for wisdom teeth. Minimal root development and improved healing can make wisdom teeth removal more favorable in children!
