TOOTH EXTRACTION / REMOVAL
At DSK Dental, our North York dentists will do everything we can to save a tooth, whenever possible.
In cases where your tooth is severely infected or damaged, however, a dentist at DSK Dental may recommend that the tooth be removed to prevent it from harming healthy, neighbouring teeth.
An impacted wisdom tooth is another common problem that will likely result in requiring an extraction. The most prevalent reason for this is when a wisdom tooth fails to grow out properly, which happens quite often. By growing in sideways, or on an angle, and pushing against other teeth, an erupting wisdom tooth can cause extreme pain and discomfort. Besides negatively affecting your comfort-levels, wisdom teeth can also increase the chances that you will suffer from a tooth infection, a cyst or damaged neighbouring teeth, which often makes removing it necessary.
