Tooth Extractions in Yaletown

Teeth Extractions in Vancouver

Tooth extractions are often performed as a preventative measure. When one of your teeth is infected or damaged, those problems may spread to other areas of the mouth and cause more issues down the line. By extracting the tooth that’s causing the problem, we can eliminate the risk at its source.

Why Do I Need a Tooth Extraction?

There are several reasons you may need a tooth extracted, including overcrowding, infections, and extensive tooth decay. Many people will also need to have their wisdom teeth removed at some point. Depending on your situation, tooth extraction may not be necessary, and your dentist will discuss alternative treatment options with you.

The Tooth Extraction Process

Your dentist will begin by numbing the area of extraction. They will then make an incision in the gum to expose the tooth, break apart the tooth if necessary, then extract it using forceps. If the tooth has not fully erupted, your dentist will instead arrange for a surgical extraction.
