There are a few different types of wisdom tooth extractions, and they may be required for different reasons. Here’s a brief overview of the extractions offered at #TheSmileDoc.
This type of extraction is used to remove teeth that have been severely damaged due to chronic oral health issues or oral injuries. If a tooth can’t be saved with other treatments like root canals, an extraction is often the best choice.
The wisdom teeth are our final set of four molars, but they come in much later than our other teeth. This can cause oral health complications if you don’t have enough space for them in your mouth. We offer wisdom tooth extractions at #TheSmileDoc to remove troublesome wisdom teeth.
Surgical extractions are required for wisdom teeth that are “impacted” and haven’t fully erupted from the gums. It sometimes may be needed for broken teeth in severe cases of oral trauma, This process involves opening up the gums, cutting the tooth into pieces through this opening, and removing it piece-by-piece.
"The staff and Dr. Reid were very courteous. They seemed genuinely happy to see me and were attentive and professional. It is nice to go to an office where the people actually seem happy to work there and really listen and care about what you tell them." "Best dentist I've ever had also the dental technicians."
There are a few different reasons that tooth extractions at #TheSmileDoc may be necessary in Leander. First, if you have a tooth that’s been severely damaged by an infection, gum disease, or dental trauma like a slip and fall, it may be impossible to save the tooth. In this case, Dr. Armando Reid will recommend extraction to relieve your pain and prevent further complications, and he can discuss your options for replacing your tooth, like a dental implant.
Tooth extraction may also be needed if your wisdom teeth are not emerging properly. These teeth start to come out between the age of 17-25, which is a lot later than the other teeth. They may not erupt all the way, and can contribute to a higher risk of infections and other oral health issues if they don’t fit into your mouth. If Dr. Reid believes your wisdom teeth may cause oral health complications, he will recommend that they be extracted.
Tooth extractions may also be needed to prepare for some other dental treatments and surgeries. For example, one or more teeth may be extracted during orthodontic treatment if you have a crowded mouth, or an unhealthy tooth may need to be pulled before you get a set of partial dentures or dental implant surgery.
No. We use numbing and sedation at #TheSmileDoc to make sure that you feel absolutely no discomfort during the treatment process. You can get the care you need without fear, anxiety, or pain.
