Tooth ExtractionsAn Overview
A tooth extraction may be recommended to address severe tooth decay, damage or to resolve overcrowding of teeth. Tooth extractions are used only when necessary. Our dentists always attempt to preserve natural teeth with dental fillings or root canals if possible. Our Villanova Dental Studio dentists offer tooth extractions and missing tooth replacement options in the comfortable environment of our Ottawa, ON dentist office.
Tooth extractions are a relatively painless procedure that can be performed in one visit to our office with the use of a local anesthetic. We also offer dental sedation options for anyone who experiences anxiety or fear of the dentist.
Your dentist will discuss appropriate aftercare procedures to minimize swelling and discomfort. Patients generally recover quickly without complication, however, if you experience excessive bleeding at home, be sure to contact our Ottawa, ON dentist office right away.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom tooth removal is a common procedure for young adults in their late teens to early 20’s as this is when the wisdom teeth typically begin to emerge. Our family dentist office provides complete wisdom tooth removal services for patients of all ages. Commonly, wisdom teeth are removed because they are impacted in the bone or present a potential overcrowding problem that will detrimentally affect the bite.
