Don't worry, we'll take care of it.
At Cosmo Smile Dental, our main goal is to preserve and keep your natural teeth strong and healthy for life.
If your tooth has been damaged by decay or trauma, our dentists will try to restore it conservatively with a filling, crown and other treatment options. However, when the damage is too severe to be restored and a root canal treatment is not possible to save your tooth, your dentist may recommend a tooth extraction.
Tooth extraction is typically a short outpatient procedure performed by a dentist or an oral surgeon. Our dentists and surgeons are experts on pain management and they will make sure you feel comfortable during the entire appointment.
Other reasons for tooth extraction:
• Orthodontic treatment – There are times when there is not enough space in the jaw for all the teeth to fit in. Your orthodontist will tell you if there’s a need to create some room for teeth that are being moved in place.
• Impacted wisdom tooth – Your wisdom teeth may need to be removed if they are infected, decayed or causing pain. These are often impacted or stuck in the jaw and need to be extracted.
• Pediatric teeth development – If a baby tooth is blocking other tooth from coming in, your pediatric dentist may suggest tooth extraction. Without extraction, the permanent tooth may grow misaligned and not erupt normally.
