Sometimes a tooth that has completely decayed, or is very mobile, may be determined to be non-restorable or hopeless. In this case removing the tooth is the best or most practical solution.
Some people have wisdom teeth (3rd molars) that erupt in an unfavorable position or orientation, which may impact and risk the health of the adjacent 2nd molars. A consultation session will determine if wisdom tooth extraction is advisable for you.
In cases of orthodontic treatment, if teeth are severely crowded some may need to be removed to create space.
Whatever the case may be, we will provide you all your options including ‘doing nothing’. If you decide to proceed with tooth removal but are nervous, we offer conscious sedation using nitrous oxide to keep you relaxed.
