There are a few reasons why a tooth removal may be necessary. Decay, disease, poor placement, or breakage are all conditions in which tooth extraction may be required.

If you have a tooth that is severely damaged or decayed, you may be advised to have it extracted. Root canal treatment can often be used to save a tooth that is decayed, but if the tooth is beyond repair, extraction may be the only option. We will always assess the tooth in order to discuss all the available options.
Visit your odontologist at least twice per year, to prevent such fortune for your other teeth.
Wisdom teeth normally erupt later and tend to cause more problems during their eruption period.
Eruption of wisdom teeth usually is incomplete, food residuals used to accumulate there creating favourable environment for growth of various bacteria causing inflammation. Eventually this leads to accumulation of plaque, potentially causing tooth decay and gum diseases.
Only a small space is left in your mouth at the moment of their eruption. Therefore wisdom teeth may grow sideways, their eruption can be incomplete or they can be impacted, thus, causing pain, infections and swelling of gums and a face.
If you experience any of these symptoms, consult your odontologist immediately.
