What are the reasons for a tooth extraction?

What are Wisdom Teeth?
Surprisingly to many, teeth do not finish coming in during childhood. Although most of a person’s teeth will have come in by the time you reach your early teens, wisdom teeth are late bloomers, so to speak. Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that usually arrive in the late teens or early twenties, after the rest of the adult teeth have already set.
Do I need to get my wisdom teeth removed?
Though wisdom teeth sometimes do not require removal, they can often cause dental problems to the mouth and jaw. Wisdom teeth can disrupt the alignment of teeth, leading to the need for braces to straighten misaligned teeth. For many people, wisdom teeth can also cause severe pain and discomfort.

What is the procedure for tooth extraction?
Our dental office will schedule an initial x ray exam to determine the shape of your jaw bone and identify any other issues, such as cavities, that ay need to be treated at the same time. If you are getting your wisdom teeth removed, our dental office will take panoramic x rays to allow us to better see the sensitive nerves within the jaw.
A simple extraction involves the use of local anesthetic injected around the site of the tooth removal. The dentist will use a device called an elevator to loosen the tooth and forceps to remove the tooth. With Detroit Dental Specialists, this procedure is quick and painless.
A surgical extraction is performed by either a general dentist or oral surgeon and is necessary in cases where the tooth being extracted has not yet come in or when the tooth has broken off at the gum line. Though it is a more complex procedure, a surgical tooth extraction does not have to be uncomfortable or expensive. Our Detroit dentists offer the best rates for both simple and complex tooth extractions.
