Tooth Extractions - Rolling Meadows
Removal in a Comfortable Environment
There are many misconceptions when it comes to tooth extractions, such as that dentists just love to do them, and we do so by literally pulling teeth! In truth, we strive to help our patients keep all of their natural teeth for as long as possible, but sometimes, a problem tooth just has to go!
We may choose to remove a tooth if:
- A large cavity has left it beyond repair
- The tooth is so broken that there isn’t anything to put back together
- It won’t fall out naturally/is blocking an incoming adult tooth (baby teeth only)
- Room needs to be created for a denture or orthodontic treatment
We also provide wisdom tooth extractions in-house, which involve a minor surgical procedure to remove the third molars that start to come in around the ages of 16-21. Most patients simply don’t have enough room in their mouths to accommodate these teeth, leading them to cause pain and crowding as they erupt.
Should you or a loved one ever need an extraction, we’ll take every step to make sure you’re comfortable the entire time. Thanks to Dr. Wang’s light touch, the procedure is usually over before a patient even realizes!
