In certain cases, your dentist, Dr. Crowley, may recommend a tooth extraction as the best option for improving your oral health. Dr. Crowley may advise tooth extraction for the following cases:
- A tooth is significantly decayed or damaged
- A large portion of a tooth or the surrounding bone has been destroyed by infection
- Overcrowding leaves too little space for all of the teeth
Tooth extraction can also prevent infection from spreading to other areas of the mouth. If you are experiencing tooth pain, please contact our dental office to schedule your appointment with our experienced Las Vegas dentist.
Wisdom teeth, which are usually the last four teeth to erupt in the mouth, often need to be removed because there is not enough room for them to erupt properly in the mouth. If the wisdom teeth cannot erupt properly and are not removed, they can cause a number of dental problems, such as overcrowding of the teeth, periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay, or the wisdom tooth becoming impacted and never breaking through the gums. At Dr. Bruce Crowley’s office, we recommend that you have your wisdom teeth removed before any of these dental health problems occur.
