Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Extractions of Wisdom and Other Teeth
Dentistry is committed to preserving and restoring health to teeth. When conservative measures are unable to ensure oral health, tooth extraction may be necessary. Tooth extraction can pave the way for surrounding teeth to remain healthy and adult teeth to erupt successfully.
Dr. Christopher H. Martone has the expertise of an oral surgeon to provide safe and comfortable dental extractions. For over thirty years, patients in Natrona Heights and the surrounding communities of Leechburg, Apollo, Vandergrift, New Kensington, and Freeport have trusted his gentle care to protect their smiles and maintain optimal oral health.
Extraction of Wisdom Teeth
The most commonly extracted teeth are wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth contribute no vital function to your oral bite since the back molars are sufficient to chew effectively. Also, there is often insufficient space for wisdom teeth to grow in comfortably.
Overcrowding can cause dental pain, especially if the wisdom teeth are impacted and only partially exposed. Gums can become swollen and infected, leading to other potential health risks. Crowding can also threaten teeth that have undergone orthodontic care by shifting teeth into misalignment and malocclusion.
Other Causes for Tooth Extraction
There are several other reasons tooth extraction may be necessary:
• Teeth have extensive damage due to trauma.
• Advanced dental decay that cannot be treated with root canal therapy.
• Teeth loosened by gum disease and bone loss.
• To make space for the emergence of adult teeth by removing baby teeth.
Gentle Care from Start to Finish
Whether you are a young child or a mature patient, Dr. Martone’s calm and gentle demeanor reduces the stress and anxiety many feel towards dental treatments.
