There are times when a damaged tooth is beyond simple repairs, and the only choice left is to extract it. At Northland Village Dental Centre, we can help. We provide oral surgery and tooth extraction for our Calgary patients when it's necessary. That may be the case when:
Extra teeth are blocking new teeth from coming in
Tooth extraction is necessary to create space for braces
Cancer patients need a bad tooth removed before radiotherapy
A tooth needs to be removed prior to an organ transplant
Baby teeth don't fall out properly, or in time for new teeth to come in
Wisdom teeth turn out to be problematic and need to be removed
Two Kinds of Extractions for Wisdom Teeth
If you're having your wisdom teeth removed, you may need surgical extraction, of which there are two types:
The first type is a simple extraction, which is done on a tooth that can be seen in the mouth. This kind of extraction is something we can do in our office.
The second kind, a surgical extraction, is a little more complex, and we will likely refer you to an oral surgeon.
If you think you are in need of oral surgery or tooth extraction, or if you have any questions about these procedures, please contact us today. If you are a first-time visitor, please note that we accept new patients of all age groups.
