Dental Extraction

When it comes to dental procedures, tooth extraction — or having teeth “pulled” — is among patients’ most dreaded prospects. There are many reasons why you should extract a tooth.

Reasons for Extraction:

  • Severe Tooth Damage/Trauma

  • Malpositioned/Nonfunctioning Teeth

  • Orthodontic Treatment

  • Extra Teeth

  • Radiation

  • Chemotherapy

  • Organ Transplant

Call us at (972) 295-9631 to schedule your appointment.

Before our dentist at Great Smiles considers extraction, every effort will be made to try to repair and restore your tooth. However, sometimes it’s necessary.

WHO SHOULD HAVE THEIR WISDOM TEETH REMOVED?

   At Great Smiles, we help our patients determine whether or not your wisdom teeth are in need of removal or are fine to stay. If you do need your wisdom teeth removed, it’s for one of the following reasons:

  • Wisdom teeth could be impacted and unable to break through the gum

  • A patient’s mouth is too small to make room for the wisdom teeth to grow through

  • Wisdom teeth could be coming in at an angle

  • Wisdom teeth could push other teeth around, causing issues with the bite or the fit of your teeth

  • Cysts can form around new teeth and cause damaged nerves

  • Sinus pain and infection is often caused by wisdom teeth

  • Wisdom teeth can counteract the effect of braces, crowns, bridges, and other dental work previously done in your mouth

  • Swollen gums from wisdom teeth can cause cavities

  • The tissue around your wisdom teeth becomes inflamed and makes it impossible for your teeth and gums to be cleaned appropriately
