Removing Unhealthy Teeth

There are a number of reasons why tooth extraction might be recommended by the dentist. If left unattended, unhealthy teeth can leave your mouth vulnerable to a host of other complications. The following are some of the reasons Dr. George may recommend removal of teeth:

  • Crowded teeth. Teeth may need to be removed to eliminate crowding, which can lead to host of other issues, such as misaligned teeth and jaw pain.
  • Dead teeth. A tooth that has died must be removed to avoid infection. If left rotting, a dead tooth can cause damage to the teeth surrounding it.
  • Teeth that are out of place. In some cases, teeth grow behind the outer row, and they must be moved with orthodontics or extracted.
  • Impacted wisdom teeth: Another common reason for extraction is an impacted or decaying wisdom tooth. Just as a dead tooth can cause infection, so can a decaying or impacted wisdom tooth.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

If you have painful, infected, or impacted wisdom teeth, Dr. George can perform tooth extraction to provide relief. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are unnecessary in modern humans. Our ancient ancestors may have needed wisdom teeth to chew roots, bark, and nuts, but a contemporary diet does not require third molars for sufficient mastication of food. Therefore, wisdom teeth aren’t necessary, and they often cause complications as they grow in incorrectly. Most people have four wisdom teeth that erupt sometime between their late teens and mid-twenties. Extraction of third molars is best done in the teen years, before the teeth erupt or begin to move and cause other teeth to shift. However, adults can undergo wisdom tooth extraction as well.

If you are concerned that you or your teen child has wisdom teeth pushing in and crowding the surrounding teeth, reach out to our team. We will begin with x-rays to get a better diagnostic picture of what is happening with your teeth. From there, we will discuss the options available for extraction. Remember, even if you have anxiety surrounding dental visits, it is important to address issues like impacted wisdom teeth in a timely manner, and we offer sedation dentistry to help those with dental anxiety. Leaving an impacted tooth for too long can lead to dangerous infections. Our kind and compassionate staff will ensure the process is as easy and stress free as possible for you.
