Dr. Karl Jobst treats a wide ranges of problems in both adults and children including EXTRACTION OF TEETH
A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including:
- tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable
- extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth
- extraction of extra teeth that block other teeth from coming in
- extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth are third molars that usually appear between the ages of 16 and 25 at the back of the mouth. They are commonly extracted when they affect other teeth – this is known as “impacted wisdom teeth”. Wisdom teeth can grow unnoticed until they start to cause issues in the mouth.
The Wisdom Tooth Surgical Procedure
Wisdom teeth are extracted either because they have already become impacted or because they are potentially problematic. The extraction of wisdom teeth can be a troublesome procedure. For more complicated procedures we will recommend an oral surgeon.
