In some cases, it isn't possible to save a badly damaged tooth. When this occurs, our Victoria dental team can provide tooth extractions to help restore good oral health.
Extractions & Wisdom Teeth
While extractions may be a worry for some patients, our dentists and the team at Dental On Fort prioritize treatments for our Victoria patients' smiles that don't involve the removal of natural tooth structures if possible.
Nonetheless, situations can occur where problematic teeth may lead to infection, damage or pain if not removed from the mouth. When this is the case, the extraction of one or more teeth can help to relieve pain and restore a patient's good oral health.
If you require a dental extraction to restore your good oral health we will do all we can to ensure that you remain relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure.
As dental professionals, we believe that it is more desirable to save a natural tooth whenever possible. There are however some cases where this isn't possible and keeping a tooth in your mouth will have serious health complications.
If a tooth is too badly damaged because of gum disease, injuries, or tooth decay we may recommend removing it.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Many, but not all, people between the ages of 17 and 25 will grow wisdom teeth (also called third molars). For some people, wisdom teeth turn out not to be fully functional or may begin to cause the serious crowding of other teeth leading to pain and oral health issues.
If this is the case for you, our dentists may recommend having your wisdom teeth extracted in order to preserve your oral health.
