Dental Extractions

Dental ExtractionsDental extractions may be necessary for a variety of reasons. Our Phoenix dental extractions expert offers surgical extractions, wisdom teeth removal and partial or complete bony impaction. Removing problem teeth can preserve your dental health and reduce the risk of long-term complications from infection or other dental diseases.

The wisdom teeth are the final molars to erupt and usually appear between ages 5 and 17. Most people have four wisdom teeth, which are located at the back of the mouth near the throat. While wisdom teeth do occasionally come in easily, many people experience complications that include impacted, crowded or misaligned wisdom teeth. Our expert in dental extractions in Phoenix may recommend extracting these teeth to prevent infection, malocclusion and other common complications.


Dental Extractions Phoenix

Impacted teeth are teeth that did not erupt completely. In some cases, they are covered by soft tissues, or gums, or they can be partially or completely encased in the jawbone. Wisdom teeth are more likely to be impacted, but any tooth can become impacted as it erupts. When a tooth does not erupt properly, it can be difficult to clean and be susceptible to tooth decay and periodontal disease. In some cases, it can threaten the health of adjacent teeth. Extracting these teeth is essential to continued dental health.

Our Phoenix dental extractions expert will create a treatment plan that meets your individual needs. We may take X-rays and perform other imaging tests to identify not just the tooth but also underlying structures. While planning your surgical extraction, we may offer you the choice between local and general anesthesia. Patients who are candidates for local anesthesia may also benefit from dental sedation, which can allow them to feel deeply relaxed or even drowsy.

Once the problem tooth has been extracted, our expert in dental extractions in Phoenix will provide you with aftercare instructions. Take any medication exactly as prescribed to reduce the risk of complications and promote healing. You may need to eat a soft diet for a few days, and good dental hygiene is essential as the tissues heal.
