Our Vancouver dentists extract severely damaged or loosened teeth and wisdom teeth only when necessary to restore your oral health.
What is a Tooth Extraction?
A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. Tooth extractions are performed only when a less invasive option is ineffective, or if a tooth is compromising your oral health.Request Appointment
Reasons for Pulling Teeth
Common reasons for pulling teeth include:
- Excessive tooth damage as a result of decay or injury
- Infected tooth nerve that cannot be fixed with a root canal
- Loosened teeth caused by advanced gum disease
- Preparation for other dental procedures
- 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 are useful if they grow in healthy and straight, but sometimes they are misaligned or impacted and need to be removed.
By extracting problematic wisdom teeth, your dentist can help reduce the possibility of oral health issues in your future.
