Extractions & Wisdom Teeth, Ottawa Dentist

What is a Tooth Extraction?

When a tooth is extracted, it is removed it from its socket in the bone. At Ottawa Downtown Dental, our dentist performs instructions only when less invasive options would prove ineffective, or if keeping the tooth would put your oral health at risk. 

Teeth are typically pulled for a few reasons, including excessive tooth damage and problematic wisdom teeth. They are also sometimes extracted to prepare for other dental procedures.  

Wisdom Tooth Removal

The last set of molars to erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth are wisdom teeth. This usually happens in patients who are between 17 and 25 years of age. 

This third set of teeth is not always functional, and may crowd out other teeth as they grow. They can also create problems for oral hygiene. In these cases, your dentist may recommend having them removed.

Repairing Excessive Damage

Normally, your dentist will work to save a tooth whenever possible. However, there are some cases, such as gum disease, excessive decay or injury in which extraction may be required. 

Do you have a damaged tooth that needs to be extracted? Your dentist will explain tooth replacement options. These may include dental crowns, dental bridges and dentures.
