There are several reasons why tooth extraction may be a viable option for you. Some teeth may require extraction due to a severely damaged or decayed tooth, while others may have advanced periodontal disease or abnormal positioning that requires removal. Extractions are also beneficial for those dealing with a crowded mouth, infection, or risk of infection.
Impacted/Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Because your third molars, also known as wisdom teeth, usually lack the adequate space needed for them to fully erupt in the proper alignment, they become impacted between the jawbone and the gum tissue. If left untreated, these impacted teeth can result in swelling, pain, infection, permanent damage to the teeth, gums, or bones, and possibly the formation of cysts and tumors. For this reason, it is recommended that impacted teeth are surgically removed as quickly as possible.
Dental implants are a great choice for those looking for a more permanent solution to tooth replacement. If maintained properly, your implants could last a lifetime. They are a cost-effective, lifetime investment that gives you the ability to eat whatever you want while also preserving and stimulating any remaining jawbone in the surgical site.
Translating to “inside the tooth,” our team focuses on the treatment of the dental pulp located inside the teeth. Our dentists can help treat damaged or diseased roots and pulp with treatments such as root canal therapy. The procedure involves replacing infected dental pulp with a harmless material while cleaning your root canals.
The following symptoms may indicate that you need a root canal:
- Tooth pain, especially when biting or chewing
- Discoloration of the teeth
- Swelling in the gums around the tooth
- Tooth sensitivity when drinking something hot or cold
- A chip or crack in the tooth
Temporomandibular disorders, or TMD, are disorders of the temporomandibular joints, jaw muscles, and nerves linked to facial discomfort and pain. The most common signs and symptoms of TMD include:
- Jaw pain & soreness
- Headaches & earaches
- Clicking, locking, or popping of the jaw
- Grinding & clenching of teeth
- Sensitivity of the teeth
- Numbness or tingling sensation of fingers
