Dhillon Family & Cosmetic Dentistry Offers Tooth Extractions
There are instances when a tooth cannot be saved by even our best efforts, posing a threat to the health of your smile. When this occurs, Dr. Dhillon may suggest a tooth extraction or the complete removal of the tooth from its place in your smile. We will only suggest a tooth extraction here in Ware, MA if it is absolutely necessary. Our caring dental team understands how losing a tooth can impact your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. The most common reason a tooth is extracted is that decay has killed the tooth and the infection is ready to spread to other areas in your mouth. The second most likely reason we may suggest a tooth extraction is because your wisdom teeth have become impacted (trapped in the jawbone) and are threatening your overall health.
How are wisdom teeth removed?
Your wisdom teeth are the last teeth in your smile to erupt from the gumline. Because of this, there is often not enough room for your wisdom teeth to grow in as they should. Wisdom teeth become impacted when they are unable to erupt fully from underneath your gums. This often causes infection, abscesses, and pressure on your other teeth. Dr. Navkiran Dhillon has the training necessary to remove impacted wisdom teeth. Our team will use the necessary sedation and anesthesia techniques to make sure you are as comfortable as possible before gently opening up your gums and removing the tooth.
No matter the reason for your tooth extraction, our team at Dhillon Family & Cosmetic Dentistry will provide you with multiple cosmetic and restorative options to replace the missing tooth. To learn more, we invite you to contact our dental office today.
