Our Winnipeg dentists provide tooth extractions for wisdom teeth, and teeth that are too badly damaged to save.
A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from the dental alveolus in the alveolar bone. Extractions are usually only performed if less invasive options would be ineffective, or if the tooth is compromising the health of the rest of the mouth.Request Appointment
Wisdom teeth emerge later in life than the other teeth. In some cases, they don't cause any problems, but sometimes, they grow in the wrong positions or angles, or there simply isn't enough room for them in the mouth.
Wisdom teeth may become impacted, or may not erupt fully. Their position in the back of the mouth makes them difficult to clean, making them susceptible to decay. In these cases, having the wisdom teeth extracted can help preserve a healthy mouth.
Occasionally, a tooth will be too badly damaged to save. This can happen as a result of dental decay or gum disease, or of an injury to the tooth. In these cases, the tooth must be extracted.
