Sometimes, tooth removal can be your only option to save your oral and overall health. We conduct a thorough dental assessment before deciding on a suitable treatment, and consider the following factors prior to tooth removal:
- Irreversible decay
- Severe effects of periodontal disease
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Serious overcrowding or malocclusion issue
- The most viable option after an accident
There are two types of tooth extractions: 1) A simple extraction performed when the tooth requiring removal is visible and local anesthesia is administered to prevent discomfort, and 2) A surgical extraction when the tooth has not fully erupted or is broken below the gumline; this usually requires general anesthesia is given prior to the procedure.
Our top priority is always caring for your teeth, but sometimes, we recommend a tooth extraction when necessary. In this case, we will also recommend restorative options to replace it. Call us at (416) 966-3368 today for a consultation.
