We all want to keep all of our natural teeth for as long as possible, but sometimes, one or more teeth have to be removed for the sake of the rest of the teeth and the health of the mouth overall. Emiles Dental Care is available in Etobicoke to evaluate the health of your teeth to determine the need for an extraction and to perform one as comfortably as possible.
If a wisdom tooth is giving you serious problems and pain, then the dentists at Emiles Dental Care offer wisdom tooth removal in Etobicoke, ON. We also offer teeth removal other than that for wisdom teeth.
Leaving a tooth that requires treatment untouched can be harmful to the health of the surrounding teeth and gums. If no treatment can save the tooth, an extraction will be recommended. Cases that would call for an extraction include:
There are two types of tooth extraction. If the tooth is visible above the gum line and can be accessed easily, a simple extraction can be done. In this case, your dentist at Emiles Dental Care will grip the tooth using forceps and shift it back and forth to loosen it. Once it has been sufficiently loosened, it can be lifted from the gums. A tooth that lies deeper within the gums or that has not erupted yet will require surgical extraction.
A local anesthetic will be used for a surgical extraction. If multiple teeth are being extracted at once, general anesthesia may be used to leave you sedated for the duration of the procedure. An incision will be made into the gums to access the tooth, which will be gripped and loosened by being pulled back and forth. It can be broken up into smaller pieces if it is set too firmly in place; the pieces can then be removed from the gums. Once all of the parts of the tooth has been extracted, the site will be closed using sutures. You will be advised to treat the affected area with care following the procedure and will be provided with instructions on the use of medications, if prescribed, and what to eat and how to keep the area clean.
At Emiles Dental Care, we do our best to maintain your oral health. If the situation arises that an extraction would best benefit you, we can perform one safely and comfortably in Etobicoke.
