Common Reasons for Extracting the Teeth

Tooth extraction is considered a final resort for teeth that cannot be effectively treated through other means. Some of the reasons we may recommend a tooth extraction in Ottawa include:

  • Infected teeth that won’t respond to root canal therapy.
  • Damaged, cracked, or broken teeth.
  • Wisdom teeth that obstruct the alignment or growth of other teeth.
  • Teeth with advanced tooth decay that can’t be treated with fillings or other restorations.
  • Teeth requiring removal to facilitate the effectiveness of orthodontic treatment.

How We Prepare for Tooth Extractions

With careful pre-planning, tooth extractions in Ottawa can be straightforward and remarkably comfortable for patients. Our team will carefully assess your tooth, its roots, and the surrounding structures using diagnostic imaging tools. Once we have determined the best method to use to remove the tooth, we will give you a full treatment plan.

Additionally, we can assist patients in planning for restorative procedures before emergency tooth extractions, guaranteeing that the absence of a tooth won’t disrupt their ability to eat or speak post-extraction.

Why do my Wisdom Teeth need to be removed? 

IIf left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth can lead to various complications. These include: 
  • Infection, damage to neighbouring teeth, decay, gum disease, bone loss, tooth loss, cysts, tumours, and jaw fracture
No symptoms do not mean disease-free. 
  • Discomfort typically arises when issues have progressed significantly and are not easily alleviated.
  • 25% of people without pain already have inflammation and gum disease around their wisdom teeth.

Can I wait to have my wisdom teeth removed?

Young wisdom teeth have incompletely formed roots, which makes for:

  • Quicker surgery by a dentist in Ottawa
  • Fewer complications like nerve damage
  • Faster healing
