Our job as dentists is to help our patients preserve all their teeth for as long as possible. Sometimes, despite all our best efforts, a tooth may become unrepairable and need to be removed.
Nobody wants to hear this kind of news, and we understand. If our Corona dentists and specialists recommend tooth extraction, you can feel comfortable and confident, knowing that it is the right decision for your oral health. When it’s time for your procedure, we will do all we can to ensure that it’s efficient and as comfortable for you as possible.
Reasons for Removing a Tooth
Several cases where our specialists would recommend tooth extraction are:
- Extensive decay has compromised the tooth beyond repair.
- Infection or abscess can’t be resolved with a root canal.
- Dental trauma has broken a tooth off below the gum line.
- Advanced gum disease has loosened one or more teeth.
- Wisdom teeth have become impacted or stuck in the gums.
We may also recommend removing one or more teeth to prepare for dental implants, denture placement, or orthodontic treatment.
We Remove Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to appear, usually in our early 20s. Also called third molars, wisdom teeth are located far back in your mouth, making them a challenge to keep clean, putting you at risk for cavities and gum disease. And because wisdom teeth can also crowd surrounding teeth, we usually recommend removing them.
Dr. Rakesh and Dr. Shital commonly perform wisdom tooth extractions teeth here at Dental Care of Corona. However, if we find one or more impacted teeth, we call on the services of our experienced periodontist Dr. Brock Lorenz.
