Get Rid of Wisdom Teeth & Other Problem Teeth

Tooth removal is something we take seriously. We want you to understand why you would benefit from having a tooth extracted. In some cases, this is in lieu of restorative dentistry. In other cases, it will make restorative treatment easier. Digital X-rays and intraoral cameras give us a better sense of the conditions in your mouth, which makes it easier to determine when removal may be in your best interest. Taking out a tooth can help if you are experiencing:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Abscessed or infected teeth
  • Crowded or poorly positioned teeth
  • Deeply broken or cracked teeth
  • Impacted teeth
  • Advanced gum disease

Infection in your tooth could spread to other parts of your mouth. In many cases, a root canal can save the tooth, but not if the tooth can no longer support a crown. Crowded teeth can complicate orthodontic treatment, such as Invisalign. Extracting a tooth or a few teeth can make it easier to straighten your smile. If you are already missing several teeth, taking out the few you have left could allow you to get dental implants to support strong, secure replacement teeth.

Most people’s third molars will erupt between the ages of 17 and 21. You probably know these teeth better as wisdom teeth. Sometimes these teeth do not have enough space to come in correctly. As a result, they can become impacted. This can increase your risk of tooth decay and gum infections. These teeth also can press into existing teeth. This can change your bite and your smile. It also can be painful.

When you visit us for routine care, we will track any changes with your wisdom teeth. We can identify potential problems, and we can act to prevent you from dealing with harmful consequences.

Common Questions About Tooth Removal / Extractions

When is a tooth extraction necessary?

The team at Sabal Dental will do what we can to conserve your natural tooth whenever possible. Extraction may end up being needed if your tooth is failing to the point it cannot be restored. Left alone, an infected tooth can harm your other teeth and gums, causing more problems and costing you more money in the long run.

How much does a tooth extraction cost?

When it pertains to a tooth extraction, or any other type of oral surgery, each case is different. The expense will inevitably depend on which tooth requires extraction in addition to the health condition of your mouth. We urge you to come in for an exam and X-rays so we can provide you an accurate idea of the cost involved.

Are tooth extractions painful?

You can feel confident our knowledgeable dental staff will do all we can to make sure your tooth removal is as worry-free as possible. We’ll take a set of digital X-rays to help us plan your procedure, then we’ll utilize an anesthetic so the location we’re working on is completely numb. We even have laughing gas to remove your dental stress and anxiety and help you unwind.
