Tooth & Wisdom Tooth Extraction

general dentistry

Since it is preferable and ideal to keep the natural tooth in place, extracting one or more teeth is typically the last resort.

When do you need a tooth extraction?

A tooth extraction may be required for a few reasons even though permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime. A tooth extraction may be necessary if it is seriously damaged. Other causes include tooth overcrowding, risk of infection, tooth decay and extensive decay.

When do you need a wisdom tooth extraction?

When a tooth is impacted, it cannot fully erupt because the gums have not entirely developed which prevents the tooth from normally coming out. To avoid causing damage to the neighbouring teeth, your Calgary dentist may prescribe extraction of the wisdom tooth as it may develop into cysts if it won’t erupt properly.
