The Need For Tooth Extraction

Preserving a patient’s original tooth is always the first priority of every dental professional. Unfortunately, there are times when extracting a tooth is the best course of treatment to prevent additional dental problems. Our oral surgeons have performed thousands of tooth extractions and have helped patients recover quickly. Our practice also offers tooth replacement options, including dental implants.

We understand the anxiety that most patients experience. Union Oral Surgery provides a relaxing, comforting environment for every patient who undergoes a surgical tooth extraction procedure.

Reasons For Extracting A Tooth

Most simple extractions, where the tooth is loose and there is little risk of complications, are performed by general dentists. More complex cases in which the tooth is still under the gum line or an incision in necessary, require the expertise of an oral surgeon.

  • A broken or fragile tooth
  • A decayed tooth
  • Impacted teeth (Such as wisdom teeth)
  • Teeth that are causing overcrowding and affecting the alignment of other teeth
  • Teeth that are not supported by enough bone due to advanced periodontal disease
  • Infected teeth that do not respond to root canal treatment
  • Teeth with unusually curved or exceptionally long roots
  • A tooth surrounded by dense or inelastic bone tissue
  • Root tip that needs removal
