There are many reasons why your dentist may perform a tooth extraction: a painful wisdom tooth has come through, dental infections, preparation for braces, or even baby teeth not falling out at the proper age.
If you need a tooth extracted, our dentists at Ivanhoe will advise you on how to prepare for it. Our focus is on keeping our patients comfortable and relaxed during their procedure, so rest assured you are in safe hands.
When a tooth is removed, we offer tooth replacement options for you. We may suggest a dental bridge or a dental implant. We can discuss your preferences at your appointment.
It is common to have your wisdom teeth extracted as most people do not have enough room in their jaws for their wisdom teeth to fully come through. If you’re having orthodontic treatment, we may also recommend having the wisdom teeth taken out to allow for better movement of the teeth. Our team is experienced and qualified in wisdom teeth extractions.
