Here's what you need to know about the various reasons for tooth extraction.

Trauma and Tooth Decay

Dental extractions are offered as a last resort to protect your health in the event a tooth experiences significant injury or decay that's beyond repair. 

During emergency tooth extraction, we will do everything in our power to ensure you feel comfortable and remain pain-free. Afterward, we will provide you with instructions to follow at home so you can set yourself up for success while healing.

As always, if you have any questions during your recovery period, please don't hesitate to reach out to our office. Once you've healed, Dr. Gasko may recommend dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures to restore your smile.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the third and final molars that erupt during the late teens to early twenties. Unfortunately, many people don't have enough room in their jaws to accommodate the extra teeth. For this reason, Dr. Gasko may recommend wisdom teeth removal to avoid health complications.

For example, many patients choose to extract wisdom teeth so that they don't lose the progress they've made with orthodontic treatment. Likewise, extracting wisdom teeth early prevents them from getting trapped underneath the gums.
