At Valerin Dental tooth extractions for oral surgery is a service that we are happy to provide for our patients or referred patients. Tooth extractions for oral surgery are sometimes necessary in order to ensure a favorable long-term outcome for the patient. If your oral surgeon has recommended that you have one or more teeth extracted, you can rely on Valerin Dental to take care of your dental needs.
Why do Teeth Sometimes Need to be Extracted?
Teeth need to be extracted for a number of reasons. Sometimes wisdom teeth need to be extracted in order to make room in the mouth for the rest of the teeth. In fact, wisdom teeth can be extracted via oral surgery even before they have broken the surface of the gums and “come in.”
Other times, teeth need to be extracted due to overcrowding. When teeth are overcrowded, it makes it harder to clean teeth and achieve a correct “bite.” Overcrowded teeth can negatively impact both your smile and the way you chew. They can even influence how you speak. In cases like this, teeth extraction can be an effective solution.
Another time when tooth extraction may be called for is if you have extra teeth in your mouth. Sometimes things happen when teeth are developing. Some people end up with one or two extra teeth, and in that case, extraction is usually necessary.
Depending on whether the tooth to be extracted has come in yet, the procedure may or may not require oral surgery under anesthesia. Your Valerin dentist will let you know ahead of time what the exact procedure will entail in your particular case.
If you have any questions about teeth extraction, please don’t hesitate to ask your dentist.
