Extractions

What is tooth extraction?

A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth. A cracked or abscessed tooth is painful and may indicate a severely damaged or infected tooth. When root canal therapy and other restorative dentistry measures cannot successfully repair a tooth, extraction may be necessary. Dr. Gimer and our team will do everything they can to help you feel relaxed and comfortable during the procedure.

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties. Sometimes these teeth can be a valuable asset to the mouth when healthy and properly aligned, but more often, they are misaligned and require removal.

Why would wisdom teeth need to be extracted?

When wisdom teeth are misaligned, they may position themselves horizontally, be angled toward or away from the second molars, or be angled inward or outward. Poor alignment of wisdom teeth can crowd or damage adjacent teeth, the jawbone, or nerves.
