Extraction is needed when the structural damage on a tooth is beyond repair. At Ellerslie 66 Dental we will recommend extraction if all other options have been exhausted. After the extraction, the tooth/teeth can be replaced with options such as bridge, dental implant and dentures.
Wisdom teeth extractions
Frequently wisdom teeth impacted completely or partially and can cause infection and pain. Antibiotics and mouthwash can solve the problem temporarily but the solution is to have wisdom teeth extracted. At Ellerslie 66 Dental, we evaluate your wisdom teeth visually and by Panoramic x-ray, depending on the condition of your wisdom teeth we may need to refer you to oral surgeons to have your wisdom teeth removed.
