When a tooth has become damaged, either because of decay or injury, our team at Anthem Dentistry does its best to save the tooth in question rather than extract it. However, we understand that sometimes this extraction is the only remaining option, which is why it’s considered as a last resort. We’ll be sure to explain to you why we recommend tooth extractions for Anthem, AZ patients before beginning treatment as well as break down the process.
While wisdom teeth may have proven useful when tooth loss was very common, they have only become more of a burden for patients than anything else. If you start to notice discomfort in the back of your mouth or facial swelling towards this area, it may be due to your wisdom teeth not having enough room to erupt. During your visit, we’ll perform a comprehensive exam and explain your wisdom tooth removal in detail before beginning treatment.
