Dentist near Woodstock discusses the need for dental extractions
There are situations when patients near Woodstock may need to have teeth removed. Working with a quality dental team at 32 Dental is a great way to determine the need for extractions and have them completed with professionals you trust. Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley are dedicated to assisting new and existing patients in achieving the smile of their dreams, regardless of what they face in terms of dental health and wellness.
Dental extractions are common and may be done for a variety of reasons.
The wisdom teeth, also referred to as the third molars, are the teeth that break through the gum line in the late teen years or early adulthood. Sometimes they become impacted and result in pain. Other times, they may come through and increase the risk for periodontal disease and tooth decay. The team of 32 Dental may suggest having the wisdom teeth removed if they pose a potential problem.
Failed Root Canal
If root canal therapy has not been successful, patients will need to remove the tooth and consider restorations. Root canals are intended to maintain the structure of a tooth after disease or infection, but if they fail, the only resolution is extraction.
Cavities are a serious issue. If not addressed early, they can become larger and result in infection. At this point, the damage may be more than can be addressed with dental fillings, so extraction is necessary.
Preparation for Dentures
When patients have lost a number of their natural teeth and are considering full dentures, they may require the removal of the existing teeth in preparation for dentures. We provide simple extractions and then can start the process of taking impressions to have custom-made dentures fabricated by our quality dental laboratory.
Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley of 32 Dental are professionals ready to help when patients are faced with problems of the natural teeth. From extractions to restoration, our team encourages patients to learn about what can be done to restore the health and beauty of their smiles.
