Extractions & Wisdom Teeth
There are times when a tooth/teeth may be doing more harm than good and removal of the tooth/teeth becomes the best option. Disease, severe trauma and overcrowding are examples of such incidences. Other times, a tooth may harbor so much plaque and harmful bacteria that it puts the surrounding teeth at risk of decay, so the doctor would advise its removal. All extractions are performed with local anesthesia, with option of nitrous or sedation to minimize any discomfort.
