Extractions Help Reestablish a Healthy Environment
While saving teeth is always ideal, there are times when extractions must be performed to improve the state of oral health. Infected teeth or painful wisdom teeth, in particular, often require removal to not only eliminate discomfort, but to preserve the gums, bone and surrounding teeth. Pain upon eating, pressure and general discomfort from wisdom teeth frequently result from malpositioning, decay or gum infection – conditions potentially leading to additional oral health concerns. At Beattie Family Dental, we work to ensure a comfortable, smooth extraction visit, no matter the source of problematic teeth.
