If you have a tooth that has become infected or damaged, you may need fast tooth extraction from a dentist in Red Deer. The general dentists at Parkland Mall Dental Centre are also able to perform root canal therapy to save the tooth from being pulled. If a root canal is not a viable option, then we can proceed with an extraction. In either case, it is essential that you seek treatment promptly to protect adjacent teeth and gums from further infection. If you feel that your situation is urgent, Parkland Mall Dental Centre offers prompt care for your dental emergencies in the Red Deer area and we encourage you to call us immediately.
Wisdom tooth Removal
The most common types of teeth to require removal are wisdom teeth, although—contrary to popular belief—they don’t always need to be removed. If a wisdom tooth is erupting properly and you’re able to keep it properly clean, there may be no need to take out that tooth. However, if a wisdom tooth is impacted—if it does not have room to erupt without causing damage to other teeth in the mouth—tooth extraction will be necessary. A wisdom tooth that has gotten infected (pericoronitis) will need prompt attention. Our general dentists have the experience to handle your wisdom tooth emergencies.
Replacements for Extracted Teeth
Especially in cases where a tooth requires unanticipated extraction, it’s important to think about options for replacing that tooth. For example, if you are thinking about getting an implant to fill in the spot where the tooth was removed, it will be very important that the dentist preserve as much bone as possible during the extraction. A dentist in Red Deer can advise you about your options for tooth replacement and what considerations need to be taken into account at the time of extraction.
