We try to retain as many teeth as possible, but if your tooth needs to be pulled out, Town Smiles Dental is where you should get it done.
Safe, reliable and speedy service for tooth extraction at any age!
Tooth extraction involves the removal of a tooth. Even though we hope your teeth will last forever, there are some factors which may cause them to decay and lose their functionality. This can cause harm to the neighboring teeth and hamper speech and biting abilities. To prevent this and possible infection, Town Smiles Dental provides the highest standards of tooth extraction services to our patients.
What are the reasons to opt for tooth extraction?
- Crowded teeth
- To align for proper alignment with braces
- Tooth trauma
A crowded mouth can cause problems with bite and speech, and it can have a negative effect on your confidence. A tooth extraction procedure can get rid of possible crowding issues and give you the radiant smile you deserve.
Decay and infection might not only affect one tooth, but they can damage your neighbouring teeth as well. A tooth extraction can help you prevent that. A tooth may be loose or damaged after trauma and it may be wise to remove it. Additionally, sometimes tooth extraction is done for braces so that your teeth are aligned properly.
What should you expect during tooth extraction?
Tooth extraction is a very common procedure and is usually done within a single appointment. For your comfort, the dentist will provide you with an anesthetic to numb the area where the tooth is to be extracted.
The tissue and bone structure will be manipulated with the aim of a painless tooth removal. If the tooth is difficult to remove, it may be done in pieces to facilitate the procedure.

If your wisdom teeth are causing pain, crowding your other teeth, or creating other dental problems, you may need to have them extracted. Wisdom tooth extractions are usually recommended when the teeth are impacted (stuck and unable to fully erupt through the gum tissue) or if they are too difficult to keep clean due to their location in the back of the mouth.
Your dentist or oral surgeon will be able to tell if you need your wisdom teeth removed after examining your mouth and taking X-rays. They will look at the position of your wisdom teeth and see if they are impacted or if they are causing any problems with your other teeth.
The recovery time after a wisdom tooth extraction varies from person to person, but it is usually pretty short. You may expect some swelling and discomfort for a few days after the procedure. Your dentist will give you specific instructions on how to care for your mouth after the extraction and what pain relief medication you should take.
Contrary to popular belief, wisdom teeth removal is not mandatory in most cases. It’s important to observe each patient’s case on an individual basis and decide whether their particular case warrants extraction.
