Tooth Extractions

Our number one priority at Genesis Family Dentistry is to save smiles. However, we must recognize when a damaged tooth is causing more harm than good. That is why we take tooth extractions so seriously.

Why Do I Need a Tooth Extraction?

A tooth extraction is the professional removal of a tooth. This isn’t as scary as it sounds, and can actually improve your oral health. There are several reason why a patient would need a tooth removed, including:

  • Damage or decay that is irreparable
  • Preventing new teeth from erupting
  • Forced removal of baby tooth to prepare mouth for adult teeth
  • Allowing space for braces to properly adjust bite
  • Preparing the mouth for those in need of radiation treatment
  • Those taking cancer drugs and experience adverse oral effects

Why Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Third molars, also known as “wisdom teeth”, are one of the most common teeth to be extracted. Removal can take place before or after eruption but is oftentimes necessary because they get stuck and don’t come in how they should. If not removed early on, they can irritate gums, leading to pain and swelling.
