Third Molar Extractions

Third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, develop later than other adult teeth, usually between 17 and 25. These teeth are located at the very back of the mouth, often causing impaction if they don’t fit in the arch of the upper or lower jaw. Impaction does not allow the tooth to grow straight up; instead, it becomes enclosed in the jaw bone. This can create a range of problems, as they push and crowd other teeth, making them grow in improperly. Cavities easily develop as they are difficult to keep clean. Infection can even occur in the jaw bone. The best solution is to have them removed as soon as they develop, before these problems and the density of the jaw bone increase, making it more difficult to extract them.

In some circumstances, a tooth that is extensively damaged or infected may need to be removed. We can do that here, too. Our compassionate manner will make you feel comfortable in our care for this treatment.

Saving Hopeless Teeth

Teeth with roots that have been damaged or infected used to require extraction, which can cause a lot of problems and should be avoided whenever possible. The good news is that we are well experienced in advanced root canal therapy, a procedure that removes the pulp chamber of a tooth and fills it with a filling material, saving the tooth. With modern anesthetics and technology, root canals are quite manageable.
