Our Treatment

Reasons for a tooth extraction

There are a number of reasons you could need a tooth extraction, including:

  • Your wisdom teeth need to be removed
  • Tooth decay and/or periodontitis
  • Dental trauma beyond repair
  • Your baby teeth didn’t fall out and are taking up space
  • You need to make space in your mouth for orthodontic work
  • You are going to get dentures and need extractions prior to getting them made

If you need to have your wisdom teeth removed, you are not alone! Most people need their wisdom teeth removed, and many dentists recommend extracting them before they become a problem. Quite simply, many of us don’t have jaws large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, and this lack of space can lead to pain, impaction, and even infection.

  • Dr. Nguyen will advise when and if your wisdom teeth may need to be removed
  • You feel pain or swelling in the area of your wisdom teeth
  • You have a cyst around the impacted tooth

If your tooth is impacted, it didn’t or is not erupting properly, it can lead to infection of your bone and soft tissues and put undue, damaging stress on the surrounding teeth. Therefore, removing the tooth is crucial to maintaining oral health and wellness.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, call Dr. Nguyen today to schedule an exam.
