A tooth will need to be extracted if it cannot be saved with a root canal treatment. Or, in the case of wisdom teeth, our dentist will recommend that they are extracted if they are causing any type of tooth pain or problem in the mouth. If the tooth has damaged or infected pulp in its center, the only way the tooth can be saved is with a root canal treatment. However, if the tooth is too damaged, or there is another reason why a root canal treatment should not be performed, the tooth will need to be extracted. In this case, after the teeth extractions Midtown, our dentist can replace your teeth with dental implants or bridges. If a wisdom tooth is impacted or infected, it will need to be extracted to relieve tooth pain, to clear dental infection from the mouth, and to avoid many other types of dental problems. Since wisdom teeth are not needed for proper chewing or speech, they do not need to be replaced once they are extracted. Wisdom teeth often cause problems in the mouth since they are the last teeth to erupt, usually between the ages of 16 and 25. At this point, all of the teeth have erupted, and there may not even be enough room for the wisdom teeth to come in, causing many different types of dental problems. Wisdom teeth extractions can be performed in our office while our patients remain comfortable due to our use of modern dental anesthesia.
