In certain cases, our dentist, Dr. Bruce E. Crowley, may recommend a tooth extraction as the best option for improving your oral health. Though we try to avoid removing teeth, Dr. Crowley may advise a 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 at 702-838-9863 to schedule your appointment with our experienced dentist.
Wisdom teeth, which are usually the last four teeth to erupt in the mouth, often need to be removed. This is often because there is not enough room for them to erupt properly in the mouth. If the wisdom teeth cannot erupt and are not removed, they can cause a number of dental problems. These may include overcrowding of the teeth, periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay or the wisdom tooth becoming impacted — when the tooth is never able to break through the gums. At Dr. Crowley’s office, we recommend that you have your wisdom teeth removed before any of these dental health problems occur.
