The team at R Dentists in Mississauga is committed to helping our patients maintain excellent oral health. We hope to help you keep your natural teeth for life. However, there are times when a tooth cannot be saved. We only recommend extraction in cases of irreparable damage, an impacted wisdom tooth, or when crowding is preventing orthodontic treatment.
Pulling a tooth does not need to be painful. We take precise steps to ensure your comfort, and to minimize disruption to surrounding tissue.
In most cases, a tooth can be removed in a straightforward process. However, sometimes that is not possible. Surgical extraction is most common with impacted wisdom teeth, which are partially or completely covered by gum tissue. Fractured or severely damaged teeth can also be problematic.
