Do I need a Tooth Extraction?
Nothing compares to what you were born with and so we do everything we can to save a tooth. However, depending upon the severity of periodontal disease, level of tooth decay, infection or trauma, a tooth extraction may be the only solution to restore your oral health.
Dr. Maria Ang is an experienced Toronto dentist if you need a tooth extracted. You could choose to delay treatment, you could choose to have the tooth extracted, or you could choose to save your tooth with root canal treatment. After a visual examination, Dr. Maria Ang will determine if saving your tooth is a better choice than extracting it.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Yes! At Millwood Dental Centre we can handle wisdom teeth extractions in the comfort of our Leaside dental office in most cases. Wisdom teeth are extracted for two general reasons: either the wisdom teeth have already become impacted, or the wisdom teeth could potentially become problematic if not extracted. See the image above, showing an impacted wisdom tooth.
