Extractions & Wisdom Teeth, Aurora Dentist

What is a Tooth Extraction?

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

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

Repairing Excessive Damage

In most cases, your dentist will work to save a tooth whenever possible. However, there are circumstances, such as injury, gum disease, or excessive decay, which require extraction.

If you have a damaged tooth that needs to be extracted, your dentist will discuss tooth replacement options with you, which may include dental bridges, dental crowns, and dentures. 

What Types of Tooth Extractions Do You Offer?

Prior to recommending a tooth extraction, your dentist will carefully examine your mouth. At Aurora Dentistry, we offer the following types of extractions for our patients in Aurora, Vaughn, New Market, and King City: 

  • Emergency Tooth Extraction in Aurora

    dental emergency can occur at the most unexpected of times. Emergency tooth extractions give you peace of mind knowing we’re able to handle your dental situation by relieving your dental pain and preventing potential infection

  • Simple Tooth Extraction in Aurora

    This extraction is a simple procedure where no incisions are needed and your dentist can remove the tooth directly. This procedure is often performed to remove a dead or decaying tooth. Teeth are also sometimes pulled to prepare for other dental procedures.

  • Surgical Tooth Extraction in Aurora

    While this tooth extraction typically won’t require the use of general anesthesia, the procedure is more complex than a simple tooth extraction. Sometimes, patients undergo an X-ray so their dentist can see the tooth structure, allowing them to plan accordingly. We use local anesthesia to numb the area, and we may need to make some incisions to expose more of the tooth’s structure. 

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth, usually 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. 

If your dentist is concerned about the position of your wisdom teeth they may recommend removing them to avoid any future complications.
