If this is the case, TotallySmiles is happy to provide tooth extraction services to restore your dental health and your peace of mind. If a tooth becomes severely damaged or decayed, your dentist may recommend an extraction if no other restorative services will fully remedy the damage. Additionally, many patients will require wisdom teeth removal services during their late teens or early twenties. TotallySmiles can quarterback your tooth extraction procedures, ensuring that your dental health is cared for every step of the way. Learn more about our tooth extraction services below.

Wisdom Teeth Removal
Many patients will develop their wisdom teeth during their late teens or early twenties. Wisdom teeth tend to cause a lot of problems because they develop so much later than the rest of your smile. Because they grow in the far back corners of your mouth, there is often no room for them to erupt. This can cause tooth impaction, which is very painful for the patient to ensure. This is why we recommend removing the wisdom teeth early on to prevent future pain or discomfort.
Even if your wisdom teeth have already erupted, they still present a threat to your dental health. Because their positioning is so far back in your smile, they can be extremely difficult to keep clean and free of food residue buildup. Patients with erupted wisdom teeth will often develop dental decay because they are unable to brush and floss effectively around their wisdom teeth. It’s important to consult with your dentist when you notice your wisdom teeth are growing in to ensure they do not cause problems within your smile.
