Most people will need their wisdom teeth extracted, but there are other reasons why a tooth might need to be removed. It’s never a fun prospect, but with the caring, experienced team at Healthy Smiles Dental Care, there’s no need to be worried; we’ll always prioritize the best decisions for your comfort and your health. Call us today to schedule an appointment to learn more about tooth extractions in Lansing, MI.
A tooth might need to be removed if there is excessive decay or if you suffered from a severe injury that cannot be repaired. Other reasons for extraction include infection, overcrowding, impaction, and preparing for orthodontic treatment. No matter the reason, we will only recommend it when absolutely necessary for your health.
Most people have four wisdom teeth that will erupt long after all of their other adult teeth have already appeared. Consequently, there’s often no room for these extra teeth, and they may need to be removed before they start inflicting pain or cause permanent dental damage. We can track the development of your wisdom teeth and start planning the procedure ahead of time if it looks like they aren’t going to be able to erupt safely.
