If you have any questions about tooth extractions, we welcome you to make an appointment to be seen at our Collingwood or Midland, ON location.
At Georgian Shores Dental Centre, we always endeavour to have you retain all your teeth, but unfortunately, sometimes tooth extractions are necessary. There are various reasons why tooth extractions may be required. Here are a few:
- Wisdom Teeth – Wisdom teeth are the most common tooth extractions. They are often removed during your adolescent years to eliminate the possibility that they will become a problem in the future.
- Tooth Damage – When a tooth is damaged from trauma or decay to a point that it cannot be repaired, removal is the only option. This may also be the case when there is advanced gum disease.
- Location – There are instances when a person may have either an extra tooth or one that is so far out of position that it cannot be rectified with orthodontic treatment. In addition, sometimes tooth extractions are needed in order to make space for orthodontic treatments such as braces.
- Medical – There are a number of medical reasons why tooth extractions are sometimes necessary. Radiation, chemotherapy and organ transplants sometimes require tooth extractions to avoid potential infections that can be dangerous.
If you have any questions about tooth extractions, we welcome you to make an appointment to be seen at our Collingwood or Midland, ON location. We’ll be glad to discuss more about tooth extractions with you.
