Does your Tooth Need to be Extracted?

Posted on Aug 23, 2012

Dental extractions (removing teeth) may be a required treatment to avoid tooth misalignment or to sustain the health of your other teeth and gums. Extractions nowadays are reasonably fast and pain-free, so if you suspect you have a tooth that calls for removal, contact your Downtown Vancouver dentist, Downtown Dental, today to schedule an appointment.

If it isn’t practical or possible to mend a tooth, our team of dental specialists at your Downtown Vancouver dentist, Downtown Dental, might be required to do a dental extraction. Teeth that are ruined by cavities or substantially chipped/broken will generally be extracted if root canal therapy isn’t a practical choice.

Dental extractions are a must for a tooth that’s dealing with periodontitis or gum disease due to the fact that the chances of the tooth affecting surrounding tissues and spreading the infection are high. Wisdom teeth that are impacted (i.e. will not be able to establish normally) or that do not have room to grow are usually extracted.

Please contact your Downtown Vancouver dentist, Downtown Dental, if you have any sort of questions or would like to book an appointment.
