Impacted Extractions San Rafael, CA
Remove teeth that have experienced significant decay.
Extraction is the procedure of removing a tooth. Extractions are done for several reasons: sometimes the tooth has experienced significant decay and can’t be saved, if wisdom teeth are impacted and will likely cause damage to the adjacent teeth, or in preparation for dentures or implants. We will always do everything in our power to save your natural tooth, but if it has decayed to the point where it cannot be saved, then extraction will be recommended with either a bridge or implant to replace it.
If you have impacted wisdom teeth, it is important to have them removed to avoid damage to adjacent teeth. You will be sedated, then the teeth will either be extracted directly or cut in half to ease the removal. After a short healing period, you will regain the full strength, comfort, and functionality of your teeth.
