Tooth Extractions

Armitage Oral Surgery | Osteogenic Orthodontics, Full Arch Restoration  All-on-X  and Functional Frenuloplasty

While maintaining whole, natural, and healthy teeth is considered ideal, there are circumstances where extraction becomes necessary to preserve both the rest of the patient’s smile and their overall well-being. The reasons behind the need for extraction can include the following:

  • Damaged Teeth: Your general dentist will surely make every effort to restore natural teeth that have fallen victim to injury and decay. However, there are situations where it’s simply too late to maintain the deteriorated structure. There are several causes for this, including advanced periodontal disease, severe fractures, infections that have reached the tooth root, and more.
  • Orthodontic Treatment: When planning to correct a patient’s smile with braces, orthodontists may find that the teeth are too crowded or otherwise improperly positioned for a successful procedure. By removing a tooth, the necessary room can be created for the movement.
  • Wisdom Teeth: Also known as third molars, wisdom teeth are usually removed in a patient’s teenage/young adult years because modern mouths simply don’t have the necessary space to accommodate them, leading to dangerous partial or full impaction in the soft tissue and bone. Patients in need of wisdom tooth extraction can experience oral pain, irritation, infections, and even the development of cysts and tumors if the procedure isn’t provided early enough in their development.

Dr. Katabi utilizes anesthesia and sedation methods to ensure a comfortable extraction process for patients, as well as the latest in diagnostic technology and treatment tools.
