Extractions & Wisdom Teeth Removal

Our Pickering dentists perform tooth extractions and wisdom teeth removal when a less invasive options would be ineffective, or if a tooth is compromising the health of your mouth.

What is a Tooth Extraction?

A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from the dental alveolus in the alveolar bone. Although permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime, there are a number of reasons why tooth extraction may be needed.

Reasons for Pulling Teeth

Common reasons for pulling teeth include:

  • Excessive tooth damage as a result of severe decay or injury
  • An infected tooth nerve that cannot be repaired with a root canal
  • Loosened teeth caused by advanced periodontal (gum) disease 
  • Preparation for other dental procedures including the application of orthodontics or dentures
  • Problematic wisdom teeth 

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars in the back of your jaw, that grow in between the ages of 17 and 25.

These teeth can be a valuable asset to the mouth if they grow in healthy and straight, but sometimes they are misaligned or impacted and require removal.

By removing problematic wisdom teeth, your dentist can help prevent issues with your oral hygiene in your future.
