You and Dr. Lee, Dr. Tu & Dr. Chung may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.
To avoid these complications, Drs. Lee, Tu & Chung will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Drs. Lee, Tu & Chung will evaluate if wisdom tooth extractions are necessary for your dental health. While some wisdom teeth extractions can be performed in the office with local anesthesia or nitrous oxide, some may require the help of an oral surgeon specialist. After careful evaluation, we will discuss with you the possible treatment options and whether a referral to an oral surgeon, or sedation are necessary.
If you think you may need a tooth extraction, please contact our office to schedule an appointment.
