Extractions & Wisdom Teeth, Toronto Dentist

When is a tooth extraction needed?

A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. At Live Well Dental, our dentists perform extractions only when a less invasive option would be ineffective, or if keeping the tooth will compromise your oral health.

Common reasons for pulling a tooth include excessive tooth damage and problematic wisdom teeth. Teeth are also sometimes pulled to prepare for other dental procedures.

Repairing Excessive Damage

Your dentist will work to save a tooth whenever possible. However, there are circumstances, such as injury, gum disease, or excessive decay, which require extraction.

If you have a damaged tooth that needs to be extracted, your dentist will discuss tooth replacement options with you, which may include dental bridges, dental crowns, or dentures.

What types of tooth extractions do you offer?

Before recommending a tooth extraction, your dentist will carefully examine your mouth.

At Live Well Dental, we offer the following types of extractions for our patients in King West, Harbourfront, Toronto and the surrounding neighbourhoods:

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth are typically the last set of molars to erupt in the back corners of an adult mouth, usually between 17 and 25 years of age.

This third set of teeth is not always functional and can crowd out other teeth as they develop. They may also create problems with your oral hygiene.

If your dentist is concerned about the position of your wisdom teeth, they may recommend removing them to avoid any future complications.
