Tooth Extractions | Wisdom Teeth Surgery - Maple Mews Dental Burlington, Dr. Rzepka

A tooth may need to be removed for a number of reasons. These can include severe decay, infection, or if it’s an impacted or infected wisdom tooth. Other reasons may include the need to prepare your mouth for a corrective or cosmetic procedure like dentures or implants. An extraction may also be necessary due to trauma or injury. Once a tooth is removed, however, there are a number of great cosmetic options available at our Burlington office to fill in the gap and restore your smile. Teeth replacement options include implants, bridges and dentures.  

 

Wisdom teeth are commonly extracted as they can become very problematic, usually in your twenties. They are the last molars to emerge, and sometimes they remain below the gumline or grow horizontally. They can cause serious issues when they fail to grow out properly, particularly when they grow against other teeth. Pushing against the adjacent teeth can cause damage to the tooth resulting in loss of additional teeth. Many people have a very difficult time cleaning around the wisdom teeth due to the location in the mouth, which can lead to decay and periodontal disease. While some people do not need to have the wisdom teeth removed, the majority of people are better off without them. They can cause severe pain as they push into other teeth, resulting in possible misalignment, infection, and cysts.
