Common Reasons for Extracting the Teeth

Extracting a tooth is typically reserved as a last measure for teeth that can’t be otherwise treated. Some of the reasons we may recommend a tooth extraction include:

  • Infected teeth that won’t respond to root canal therapy.
  • Damaged, cracked, or broken teeth.
  • Teeth that are impeding the alignment or development of the other teeth (such as the wisdom teeth).
  • Teeth with advanced tooth decay that can’t be treated with fillings or other restorations.
  • Teeth that need to be removed in order for orthodontic treatment to be effective.

How We Prepare for Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions in Ottawa can be simple and quite comfortable for patients when we plan them carefully ahead of time. 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 to outline your procedure and what to expect. We can also help patients plan for restorative treatments in advance of an extraction, ensuring that your missing tooth won’t interfere with your ability to eat or speak after the extraction.

Why do my Wisdom Teeth need to be removed? 

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause a lot of problems if not removed in a timely manner. These include: 
  • Infection, damage to neighbouring teeth, decay, gum disease, bone loss, tooth loss, cysts, tumours, jaw fracture
No symptoms does not mean disease free! 
  • Pain only developed once the problems are serious and may not be easily
  • 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
  • Less complications like nerve damage
  • Faster healing
