We Make Wisdom Teeth Removal Easy
Timonium dentist Dr. Haywood and our team will do everything in our power to help you enjoy a lasting, full smile. And, with modern dentistry treatments, the need for a tooth extraction is quite rare. However, in some cases, a tooth extraction may still be the best option for you, and the procedure might be necessary to preserve your oral health.
Do I Need a Tooth Extraction?
A tooth extraction may be necessary if:
- A tooth has become so badly decayed and infected that keeping the tooth could cause the other teeth harm.
- A tooth has become so badly decayed and infected that keeping the tooth could cause harm to your overall health.
- The tooth is malpositioned or fractured.
- The teeth are wisdom teeth and require wisdom teeth removal.
We perform the tooth extraction with gentle care and attention to you. When you require a tooth extraction, we will do everything we can to make you as comfortable as possible. Extractions are performed by gently separating the tooth from the ligament, and then removing the tooth from the socket.
After your tooth is extracted, we will meet with you to discuss your restorative options and will work with you to fill that gap.
Wisdom Teeth Removal From Dr. Haywood
Your wisdom teeth are your very back set of molars that tend to erupt in late adolescence. By the time wisdom teeth come in, the mouth often doesn’t have enough room for them, and the wisdom teeth may start to impact.
Impacted wisdom teeth are very painful and can result in damage to the other teeth and other serious issues. We often recommend wisdom teeth removal before the teeth have erupted as a precaution to protect you from the harmful effects and serious toothache associated with wisdom teeth impaction.
Unlike regular tooth extractions, wisdom teeth removal is often performed surgically.
