Tooth extraction is a procedure that removes a tooth that has become diseased or damaged. The tooth is removed with the use of an instrument called a dental explorer, which is used to gently remove the tooth. The removal of the infected tooth will prevent further infection and help ensure that there are no complications in the future.

Wisdom Tooth Coronectomy
Wisdom teeth are the last set of teeth to appear in a person’s mouth, usually around the age of 12. When wisdom teeth do not arrive, they can become impacted and cause pain, swelling, and infection. If this happens, the tooth or teeth may need to be removed right away to avoid complications such as abscesses or infections that could develop in the area.
Regular checkups with your dentist can help to avoid this issue.
Dental implants are an alternative to dentures and bridges. They are placed into the jawbone, replacing missing teeth. The replacement teeth are made from a special material that is porous and has a root canal, just like natural teeth.
Missing teeth can affect the way you eat, smile or speak.
Orthognathic surgery is performed on those whose jaws do not meet correctly, or whose teeth are poorly aligned when they bite. The surgery corrects jawbone irregularities and realigns the jaws and teeth to improve their efficiency.
You could need oral surgery, which will be recommended by a dentist if you have:
- Extensive tooth decay
- Badly broken teeth
- Gum disease
- Impacted teeth
- Missing teeth
- Bone loss in your jaw
