What Is a Tooth Extraction?
Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. While we strive to avoid the need to remove a tooth whenever possible, certain conditions may make tooth extraction the most effective option for returning your smile to good health and function. Following the tooth extraction, we are happy to provide you with one of our excellent tooth replacement treatments, if needed, to restore your smile to optimal health, beauty, and function.
Dental Issues that May Require An Extraction
- Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
- Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
- Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth
Wisdom Teeth Removal
We provide wisdom teeth removal‚ one of the most common extractions in both our Oregon and Washington locations. Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that usually appear between the ages of 15 and 25. While some people’s wisdom teeth come in without a hitch, it’s fairly common for these final molars to cause issues. If your wisdom teeth are coming in at an angle, causing crowding, or damaging your surrounding teeth, please call our office for a consultation!
