Extractions & Wisdom Teeth, Antigonish Dentist

What is a Tooth Extraction?

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its bone socket. Drs. Daniel McKenna & Robert Dunphy's team perform extractions only when a less invasive option would be ineffective, or if keeping the tooth would jeopardize your oral health.

Excessive tooth damage and problematic wisdom teeth are two of the most common reasons for tooth extraction. Teeth are also occasionally extracted to prepare for other dental procedures.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars to emerge in the back corners of a normal adult mouth, usually between the ages of 17 and 25.

This third set of teeth is not always functional, and it has the potential to crowd out other teeth as they grow. They may also wreak havoc on your oral hygiene. In these cases, your dentist may advise you to have them removed.

Repairing Excessive Damage

Whenever possible, your dentist will work to save a tooth. However, in some cases, such as injury, gum disease, or excessive decay, extraction is required.

If you need a damaged tooth extracted, your dentist will discuss tooth replacement options with you, which may include dental bridges, dental crowns, or dentures.
