Some of the common reasons for tooth extraction are:
Damaged and infected teeth can be restored by using composite fillings and root canal therapy. However, if the infection has reached an advanced stage, antibiotics or root canal therapy may not be able to help cure it. In such situations, tooth extraction may be the only option to prevent the spread of infection. You can rely on our professional and experienced dentists to offer tooth extraction. In addition to tooth extraction, we also offer teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, teeth cleaning and polishing solutions.
Wisdom teeth are a set of molars that come between the age of 17 and 25. Since wisdom teeth are far back in your mouth, they are usually trapped in your jawbone or gums and can be extremely painful. Wisdom teeth are difficult to clean, hence they are also prone to infection and cavities. Our team of dentists offer reliable wisdom tooth removal services. We will administer local anesthesia to ensure that the procedure is pain-free.
Crowded teeth are commonly caused when there is no space in your mouth to accommodate all your teeth. If you have crowded or crooked teeth and wish to align them perfectly, you need to come to Harborn Dental Centre in Mississauga.
We offer both simple and surgical tooth extraction. During the simple extraction, our dentist will numb the tooth and loosen it with an elevator before removing it. The surgical extraction will require our dentist to create a small incision in your gum and remove the underlying tooth.
Why is a tooth extraction necessary?
If your teeth are damaged or infected and cannot be restored by filling or any other dental treatment, then tooth extraction is essential.
How long does it take for recovery?
Once the procedure is done, our dentists will provide instructions on how to take care of your gums. The tooth extraction recovery takes about two weeks, however, this recovery period varies from patient to patient.
Why do wisdom teeth need to be removed?
If the wisdom teeth cause crowding in your teeth, it is recommended to remove them in order to avoid damaging the surrounding teeth.
Can I brush my teeth after the procedure?
It is important to avoid brushing your teeth for 24 hours after the procedure. Be sure to be gentle around the extraction sites when you brush your teeth.
What kinds of food can I eat after my tooth extraction?
It is essential to eat cool and soft food for a day or two after your surgery. It is essential to avoid hot food as it may disturb clot formation in the extraction sites. It is also important to avoid smoking and chewing hard foods for 6 weeks post teeth extraction.
