In dentistry, extraction of a tooth is often the best option for a patient. Although it may seem like you are losing more than you gain, the alternatives are sometimes much worse. Consider a tooth that is badly decayed, spreading infection to adjacent teeth and gums. The result of that would be invasive treatments which could lead to you suffering extreme pain or losing more than one tooth. The extracted tooth is easily replaceable, so it is better to address the issue before it has a chance to cause any more damage.
The extracted tooth can be replaced with implants or a partial denture, which will restore your functionality and smile. With the innovative technology used at Sycamore Hills Dentistry, you won’t even notice the difference once dental treatment is complete. Once the offending tooth has been removed, further decay or damage to your teeth and gums is prevented.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
When wisdom teeth are causing you discomfort and pain, there is a lot more going on than a tooth cutting through. A wisdom tooth can become impacted pushing on the adjacent tooth causing discomfort. In some cases, the wisdom tooth will attempt to grow into a space already occupied by a tooth, and that will result in damage to the teeth, gums and bones of the patient. Contact Sycamore Hills Dentistry right away if you think you have an unruly wisdom tooth causing you pain or discomfort.
We have the technology to determine exactly where your wisdom teeth are aligned, regardless of whether the tooth is visible or not. The Sycamore Hills Dentistry team can even determine the angle at which the tooth will cut through, so we can perform a removal before it has a chance to do any damage. We want to ensure that our patients do not suffer pain from wisdom teeth.
