 Eliminate Tooth Pain Or Remove Wisdom Teeth

Tooth Removal/Extractions

Read Transcript

At Oregon Smile Care Center, we take every measure to help you keep your natural teeth healthy and functional. We can accomplish that with preventive and restorative dental care. But while we prefer patients to keep their natural teeth, it’s a fact of life that some teeth cannot be repaired.

We’ll start by saying that we use tooth extractions as an absolute last resort! Many patients come to our Salem, OR dental office with a severe infection that cannot be corrected with a root canal, or they have teeth that have been severely broken. By extracting failing teeth, we remove harmful infections that could otherwise spread to nearby healthy teeth. We also offer tooth extraction for third molars, also known as wisdom teeth.

What Causes Your Teeth To Fail?
The biggest contributing factor for adult tooth loss is gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can form a painful infection that works its way between the gums and teeth and even down to the jawbone. A rampant infection can cause your teeth to become loose and fail. It’s also possible for breaks and fractures to lead to tooth loss. We can restore a tooth only so many times before it becomes impossible to save.

When we extract the teeth, we can help you fill those missing gaps with a dental bridge, full or partial dentures, or even dental implants. Dental implants are made from titanium and act as anchors for permanent, lifelike restorations. The incredible thing about dental implants is that the titanium naturally fuses to your jawbone, meaning the implant becomes part of your body!

We work with a laboratory to create restorations and with an oral surgeon who places dental implants. We can then restore your dental implants with strong, natural-looking tooth restoration that let you eat anything you want!

Don’t Let Wisdom Teeth Ruin Your Smile

In addition to removing damaged teeth, we also remove teeth to help you maintain a healthier mouth. Wisdom teeth are molars that often erupt when patients are in their teens or early 20s. The problem with wisdom teeth is that they almost always grow in sideways. Fully developed wisdom teeth can push against your back molars and potentially disrupt the alignment of your teeth. We can handle both single and multiple wisdom tooth extraction. The treatment is common for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment. Patients often experience pain and tenderness when the wisdom teeth erupt, so it’s important to have them removed.

While we do many wisdom tooth extractions in-office, we also refer patients to oral surgeons. Our anxious or nervous patients can take comfort knowing that we offer sedation dentistry. We can prescribe you a pill to take before your visit, and by the time a friend or family member drives you to our office, you’ll find yourself in a total state of relaxation.

Our office is available to discuss your dental needs and to plan out dental treatments. We view most tooth extractions as a last resort, but the procedure can also help improve your overall and oral health. Following tooth extraction, we give our patients special post-operative instructions and can give you beautiful, natural-looking tooth replacement options.

If you’re struggling with failing teeth or have painful wisdom teeth pushing against your back molars, don’t wait for your problems to progress. Call our Salem, OR dental office today at 503-837-2718 or use the online form to book a visit.
