As professional dentists in Matthews, our goal is to help you improve your oral health and ensure all of your original teeth are kept intact. However, in some cases a tooth cannot be saved and it becomes necessary to remove it.
When we extract teeth in Matthews, NC, we remove the tooth as a result of crowding, disease, or trauma. Teeth can also be removed due to other reasons such as:
Wisdom teeth removal is the process of extracting your third molars, and these teeth are the most commonly extracted. Wisdom teeth usually come in between the ages of 17 and 21 but can be extracted before or after they come in. Sometimes they can get stuck in the jaw and don’t come in.
Wisdom teeth becoming stuck in the jaw is the primary reason why they are removed. When n, they can cause your gums to become irritated, leading to pain and swelling.
Before we remove your wisdom teeth at our Matthews, NC location, our dentist will give you a local anesthetic to numb the area of extraction. A general anesthetic may be used if the procedure requires removing all your wisdom teeth at the same time.
We use two methods for teeth extraction in Matthews, NC: simple extraction and surgical extraction. A simple tooth extraction uses a minimally invasive approach, especially when the teeth are visible in the mouth and can be easily removed. A surgical extraction is done when a tooth or piece of the tooth is stuck below the gumline.
Our dentists use oral surgery in Matthews, NC, for teeth that can’t be removed with a simple extraction. We can give you a good and painless tooth extraction experience. Contact us to schedule a tooth extraction appointment or to learn more about this procedure.
