Extractions & Wisdom Teeth, Southport Dentist

What Is a Tooth Extraction?

A tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. At Southport Dental Clinic, our dentists perform extractions only when a less invasive option would be ineffective, or if keeping the tooth will jeopardize your oral health.

Common reasons for pulling a tooth include excessive tooth damage and problematic wisdom teeth. Teeth may also be pulled to prepare for other dental procedures.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth. These teeth will typically erupt between 17 and 25 years of age.

This third set of teeth is not always functional and can crowd out other teeth as they develop. They may also create problems with your oral hygiene. In these cases, your dentist may recommend extraction.

Repairing Excessive Damage

Your dentist will work to save a tooth whenever possible. However, circumstances such as injury, gum disease, or excessive decay, will likely require extraction.

If you have a damaged tooth that will require extraction, your dentist will discuss tooth replacement options with you, which may include dental bridges, dental crowns, or dentures.
