What are tooth extractions?
Dr. David Ewing and our dental team take the health of your smile seriously. We will do everything within our power to save your natural smile and restore the functionality of a damaged tooth. However, some circumstances may require the removal of a tooth from the place in your jawbone. This is called a tooth extraction. Tooth extractions will only be suggested at Irish Road Dental if they are absolutely necessary to maintain the overall health of your smile. The most common reason for a tooth extraction is severe tooth decay or damage.
What is wisdom teeth removal?
Another common reason for tooth extraction in Davison, Michigan, is the impaction of your third molars, commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. Your wisdom teeth are the last of your teeth to erupt from the gum line, and they often have trouble growing in properly. They may become impacted when they get stuck beneath the bone and gums or when they grow in sideways.
Our dentist will use great skill and care when removing a tooth and will also guide you throughout the healing process. Once a tooth has been removed, we will suggest replacement options to restore your smile. For more information, we encourage you to contact our dental office today.
