Wisdom Teeth Extractions and Tooth Extractions in Ottawa.
A tooth may have to be extracted if it is causing you pain and discomfort. One of the possible causes for this is infection. To prevent it from spreading and harming nearby areas, the tooth may have to be removed.
Other causes requiring an extraction is when a wisdom tooth becomes impacted. This occurs when the wisdom tooth fails to erupt properly and is negatively impacting adjacent teeth, which can cause swelling, pain and discomfort.
For non-impacted molars, or wisdom teeth, before extraction is even considered, we will do everything we can to save the tooth and consider all options.
