Do you have severely damaged, decayed or infected teeth? Considering oral surgery in Calgary? At Image Dental, we strive to protect teeth as much as possible. However, there are cases where a tooth extraction in Calgary is the best option for a patient’s overall oral health. We offer two types of tooth extractions, simple and surgical which require different techniques and can be used in different situations. Before any tooth extractions in Calgary, AB we perform dental x-rays of the mouth to determine which extraction method is best.
A simple tooth extraction in Calgary may be performed if the affected tooth is visible in the mouth, is not broken and has properly erupted. During the tooth extraction, an elevator will be used to loosen the tooth, and then forceps will be used to remove it.
Surgical tooth extractions in Calgary may be performed if the affected tooth is not visible, has been broken or hasn’t properly erupted. During a complex tooth extraction, an incision will be made to remove the tooth and any debris fully.
Think you need a wisdom tooth extraction near you? Wisdom tooth extraction surgery is a common reason patients have teeth extracted. This is due to them often not erupting properly or causing complications for the patient. Most often, surgical tooth extraction is required for wisdom teeth removal.
