About Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions sound menacing in theory. In reality, they are a relatively straightforward procedure designed to remove broken, cracked, or otherwise damaged teeth. However, they do much more than that! If you have a non-functional tooth, your dentist needs to create space in your mouth for an orthodontic treatment, or a tooth has been compromised by an advanced stage of periodontal disease, then extraction of one or more teeth may be incorporated into your treatment plan.

Whether the youngest member of your family needs a tooth extracted in preparation for braces, your teen needs their wisdom teeth removed, or anything in between, you can have peace of mind knowing your smile is in the best of hands. In short, only the latest in proven dental technology and the most advanced techniques will be used, ensuring your experience is as enjoyable as possible.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Although there is a small portion of the population that doesn’t have wisdom teeth, most of us can expect them to make an appearance between the ages of 17 and 26. Unfortunately, they are often impacted, don’t grow in straight, or there simply isn’t enough room in your mouth for them, resulting in pain, discomfort, and other unpleasant consequences. To prevent this from happening, Dr. Schnell will monitor them closely. If they begin to pose a problem, she will recommend having them removed.
