Whether your wisdom teeth are erupting, or you have a problematic tooth, Redwood Dental Shelby Township can safely and comfortably treat you. An infected tooth that is beyond saving must be extracted to protect the surrounding teeth as well as your overall oral health.
Common reasons for a tooth extraction include:
- Impacted tooth: Tooth is trapped beneath bone or gums and not emerging properly.
- Crowding teeth: Lacking proper space between teeth causing dysfunction and discomfort.
- Decay or infection: When a tooth is infected to the point that a filling or root canal cannot save it, it may require extraction.
- Wisdom tooth: The final set of molars that are commonly misaligned and require removal.
