Tooth Extractions in Cambridge, ON

We try to save the tooth as much as possible but tooth extractions are commonly recommended in cases where the tooth is extensively damaged due to decay or trauma beyond repair, or if it is infected and the patient is not a candidate for endodontic (root canal) treatment.

It is also frequently prescribed when the teeth of one or both dental arches are severely crowded, and a discrepancy is seen between the size of the teeth and space required.

Simple Tooth Extraction Near You

A simple extraction may be sufficient if the tooth is fully erupted from the gum line. These are the easiest cases however, x-rays must be taken in order to determine the full extent of the jaw, gum and tooth situation.

Common reasons can include:

  • Extensive tooth decay.
  • Teeth damaged beyond repair.
  • Tooth infection or abscess.
  • Overcrowding of teeth in the mouth.
  • Impacted wisdom teeth causing pain.
  • Other dental issues such as a weakened jawbone.

Surgical Extraction in the Cambridge, ON Area

Surgical extraction also known as "open extraction", is a dental procedure used to completely remove a tooth surgically. Even if the tooth is partially visible in the mouth, surgical techniques may be required for its removal. This can involve sectioning the tooth into multiple pieces, and it may involve making a soft tissue incision. Surgical extraction is commonly used for impacted wisdom teeth (third molars).

While surgical extraction is more complex than a simple tooth removal full anesthesia (sleep with IV sedation) is available.
