For some, wisdom tooth removal is necessary to maintain optimal dental health.
Single Tooth and Wisdom Teeth Extractions
When there is not enough space for the wisdom teeth to erupt at all, they can cause pain in the gums and bone as they shift. This is known as ‘Impacted Wisdom Teeth.’ When your wisdom teeth are impacted, the opening around the teeth may become a fertile ground for bacteria to start developing and may lead to an infection in the gum tissues.
As a result of this infection, you may experience discomfort, swelling, pain, and illness. The early removal of impacted wisdom teeth is often recommended to avoid future problems and avoid costly surgical procedures.
Single Tooth Extractions
Your permanent teeth were intended to last a lifetime, but in some cases, there are circumstances that arise that require a tooth to be extracted. Midpark Dental offers single tooth extraction services, at our Southeast Calgary Dental Clinic.
Single-tooth extraction is recommended because a tooth is damaged beyond repair from trauma or advanced tooth decay. Our friendly dental team will help you throughout the process by providing answers to all of your questions and concerns about your single-tooth extraction.
Reasons why you may require single tooth extraction:
- Active infection or the risk of infection from a diseased tooth
- Periodontal (Gum Disease)
- Tooth Extractions
- Baby Tooth Removal
After your single tooth extractions, Dr. Alina Drosu, General Dentist will recommend the best treatment options in order to replace your missing teeth. We offer services such as dental bridges, partial dentures and dental implants as a reliable, functional and aesthetically pleasing solution for replacing missing teeth.
As a temporary solution, we will discuss the short-term use of an appliance known as a ‘Flipper’ for patients that have lost a front tooth.
Your tooth extraction will take place in our Southeast Calgary dental office, and the length of your procedure will depend on your specific needs.
We’ll help you feel comfortable throughout your appointment and will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your mouth after your tooth extractions.
Symptoms you may experience if you do not remove your tooth:
- Gum Infection
- Teeth Crowding
- Wisdom Teeth Decay
- Poor Positioning
- Bone Loss or decay due to cysts
Diagnosing Your Wisdom Tooth Treatment With A Dental Exam
Dr. Alina Drosu, General Dentist will complete a thorough examination of your mouth, including x-rays that will help diagnose the type of wisdom teeth removal you require. Regular dental exams also help you keep your gums and teeth healthy, allowing us to identify any potential concerns to prevent costly dental procedures down the road.
If your wisdom teeth are aligned properly, and the surrounding gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not always have to be removed. With our clinical exam and panoramic imaging, we can inform you if you or your child’s wisdom teeth require extraction.
