About Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are minimally invasive procedure that are routinely done by our Thorncliffe Dental team of experienced dentists. The severity of the extraction will depend on the location of the affected tooth. A tooth in the front of the mouth is easier to remove than a back molar. An impacted wisdom tooth below the surface of the gum is the hardest tooth extraction to take out.

When Do You Need A Tooth Extraction?

If you think you are in need of a tooth extraction, then our Thorncliffe Dental Centre staff are available to ensure you get the best procedure possible. Below are a few common reasons tooth extractions are needed:

  • Damaged tooth. Teeth can be damaged from injury, accident, or severe tooth decay.
  • Impacted wisdom tooth. If there isn’t enough space for the wisdom tooth above the surface of the gum, then the tooth will become impacted. This can cause several different issues with the mouth.
  • Stubborn baby tooth. Baby teeth that do not fall out on their own time will need to be extracted.
  • Overcrowded mouth. When there is not enough space for all the teeth to fit properly, surrounding teeth will need to be removed in order to protect the smile.
