Tooth extractions are a routine dental procedure which can be performed in just one visit to our Payette area office. Dr. Brock Hyder is a experienced general dentist that will use this procedure to address severe tooth decay, damage or to resolve overcrowding of teeth.
Why Tooth Extractions are Necessary
If you are suffering from a severe infection in your tooth, a root canal may be necessary. However, there are many times a root canal is not enough to fix a tooth. In these situations, a tooth extraction may be needed. Although, Dr. Hyder will everything he can to save the natural tooth. Impacted teeth can have a severe impact on your oral health. They stop growing normally and will affect the surrounding teeth. If you are suffering from severe tooth decay, this will cause major damage to teeth over time. Extracting a damaged tooth can prevent infection and the risk of overcrowding.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth removal typically occurs for patient in their late teens or early 20s. Having your wisdom teeth removed can be beneficial to your oral health. If they become impacted, it can cause damage to your surrounding teeth. For some, it will lead to overcrowding issues. Since these are the last set of teeth to emerge, they can cause the other teeth to shift. Even if your wisdom teeth come in normally, they are very difficult to care for since they are so far back in your mouth. Sometimes patients choose to have them removed to simply avoid possible bite issues and occurrences of decay.
There are several reasons it has become a common practice to remove wisdom teeth once they have erupted. First younger patients simply recover faster and easier than older patients. Additionally, the roots continue to grow making it harder for the dentist to remove.
Tooth Extractions: What to Expect
Our professional team will collaborate with you to provide the most comfortable care possible.
