Tooth Extractions An Overview
A tooth extraction is commonly performed to address a severely damaged tooth. Many dentists consider tooth extractions as the last form of treatment. Our Montclair Plaza dental care team works with you to preserve your natural tooth and may determine if a root canal is right for you. If a tooth extraction is deemed necessary, your Montclair Plaza dentist will work with you to create a treatment plan based on your needs.
Tooth extractions are performed in our Montclair Plaza dental office under the care of an experienced endodontist. A tooth extraction can typically be completed in just one visit. We offer a full range of sedation options to help patients feel comfortable during their procedure.
A tooth extraction may be necessary for:
- Overcrowded teeth
- Damaged teeth
- Diseased teeth
- Impacted wisdom teeth
Wisdom Teeth Removal
One of the most common types of tooth extractions is wisdom teeth removal. Wisdom teeth removal usually occurs during the late teen and early twenties. Dr. Srikureja will perform a full comprehensive exam and X-rays to determine if wisdom teeth removal is necessary.
In some cases, the teeth are impacted or crowded, which will require the removal of the wisdom teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, infection, and swelling of the soft tissue and face. Dr. Srikureja will discuss all aspects of the wisdom teeth procedure during your consultation.
