Our dentists perform tooth extractions as a last option. Our goal is to help maintain your teeth for a lifetime, sometimes teeth need to be removed. Although state-of-the-art dental restorations like implants, crowns, partials and dentures boost functionalities, it’s always good to preserve natural teeth as far as possible.

The prospect of getting a tooth extracted may make you apprehensive. However, the good news is, our skilled dentists near you are trained to perform pain-free, safe extractions.

When Is an Extraction the Best Option?

There are often instances when extraction may be the best or only option left to pursue. The most common reasons include wisdom teeth, extra teeth, very crowded teeth present in the mouth, decayed or cracked teeth, or teeth who are loose due to lack of bone support caused by gum/bone disease.

Your comfort is always our number one priority. We’ll discuss your unique situation and determine the best way to help you receive the treatment you need. It can be from the use of simple local anesthesia or use of sedation.

As periodontal disease progresses, the ligament fibers that fasten the tooth to the gums become frayed and weak. If left untreated, the bacteria attack the surrounding bone that supports your teeth, and they start becoming loose.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions in Calgary, AB

When a wisdom tooth becomes impacted, it does not erupt entirely from under the gum line. Wisdom teeth develop between 17 and 25 years of age, and at times, they may not have enough room to grow. For others, they erupt correctly and line up at the rear of the oral cavity, behind the molars.

If not pulled, impacted wisdom teeth strain other teeth, cause infection, cysts and pain. Our dentists will assess and x-ray your tooth thoroughly and perform a safe and pain-free extraction near you. The dentist will de-sensitize the site and use advanced instruments to pry the wisdom tooth out of the socket. We will prescribe effective oral medication to control any lingering soreness.

What to Expect During Recovery

Your dentist will give you personalized instructions as you recover from dental surgery. You may experience normal, post-surgical symptoms such as:

  • Light bleeding (up to 24 hours)
  • Pain and swelling in the gums and at the extraction site
  • Difficulty opening your jaw
  • Dry socket (an inflammation occurring if the blood clot is lost too soon)
  • Numbness of the mouth and lips
