Tooth extractions range from simple removal of tooth/teeth to complicated removal of teeth, gum, and bone. It is usually the last resort for compromised teeth with doubtful or hopeless prognosis. Most common causes for tooth extractions include large tooth decay, severe gum disease, large fractures/splits, infections which cannot be treated by Root Canal Treatment, and wisdom teeth problems. We can extract teeth in most cases , including wisdom teeth, but a consult with the dentist is essential. Referrals to oral surgeons are also available for difficult cases or for those wishing to have extractions done under general anaesthesia.
Below is an example of an infected tooth that was extracted due to large dental decay. The lower right wisdom tooth is also visible.
