Extractions are conducted only when a tooth is infected and there is no option available to treat the disease. At times, teeth can be so severely infected that it causes immense pain and discomfort. If a tooth has incurred severe enough damage, an extraction is done to stop and control the infection, preventing it from spreading. If the infection is not treated in time, it might spread to surrounding teeth and gums. This will gradually lead the other teeth to decay and potentially even tooth loss.
Extraction of impacted third molars (wisdom teeth extraction) may become necessary in cases pertaining to abnormal growth. Sometimes, the teeth may be removed to allow for the installation of dentures and braces in order to prevent misalignment of teeth. At Beausejour Dental Care we take utmost care and use preventive measures, which includes the administration of sedatives.
