Tooth Extractions – Milwaukee, WI

Safe, Accommodating, & Comfortable Tooth Removal

At Sweet Smiles Family Dentistry, we do everything in our power to save and preserve your natural teeth because we understand that there’s no substitution quite like them. However, in some situations, tooth extractions are necessary if a tooth has become severely damaged or infected. In the event that you need to remove a harmful or problematic tooth, you can rest knowing that your comfort is our top priority. When you come to see us, we’ll explain all the steps of your treatment and make sure you know proper aftercare, so you can avoid any complications moving forward.

Why Choose Sweet Smiles Family Dentistry For Tooth Extractions? 

When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?

If a tooth is severely decayed or broken, there may not always be a treatment that can save it. Furthermore, if you have severe gum disease, the bone supporting a tooth can break down, making it impossible to hold the tooth in place. And, in rare cases, extra teeth that cannot fit in the mouth properly may need to be removed, especially if you plan to get orthodontic treatment (this will allow the remaining teeth to shift more easily). In these situations, tooth extractions can actually help improve your oral health and preserve your remaining natural pearly whites.

Types of Tooth Extractions

When you visit our office, we’ll conduct a visual examination of your smile and inspect the X-rays we capture to determine whether a tooth extraction is necessary or not. Depending on your unique oral situation, we may suggest one of the following types of extractions.

Wisdom Tooth

Not all patients have wisdom teeth, but for some patients who do, we may suggest having them extracted. There are situations in which removing these third molars can reduce your risk of experiencing infection or severe dental issues. For some patients, they may not have enough room in their mouth to allow them to grow in safely without causing misalignment issues and oral health problems to develop down the road. In these cases, we’ll suggest extracting them to ensure that your mouth stays healthy.

Multiple Teeth

Other patients may require teeth to be extracted due to problems such as genetics, dental trauma, or severe decay. Before your procedure begins, we’ll walk you through your multiple tooth extraction and discuss restorative options with you to rebuild your smile on a healthy foundation.

Restoring Extracted Teeth

We recommend that patients who need teeth extracted due to oral health issues or infection look into our several restorative options that we offer, such as dental implants in Milwaukee. These will allow you to regain the full strength and function of your smile so you can continue eating and speaking with ease. If you have any questions about these, don’t hesitate to ask during your initial consultation. Our team will be more than happy to provide you with the information you need to help you envision your healthier and happier smile.
