Sometimes it comes to this
At Carlton Dental, we are advocates for saving and keeping your natural teeth as long as possible. This is because nature often provides the best solution. However, when an infection gets too bad or a tooth has a deep crack it can become difficult or impossible to save a tooth. Whatever the reason is, when the need for an extraction arises, what has to go has to go.
The wisdom teeth are another reason on why a tooth needs to be extracted. They can be a source of multiple problems like being impacted (growing the wrong way), cause spacing issues in the mouth, affecting how you bite or causing irritation around the gums. This is why it is important to remove these teeth so that these risks can be prevented down the road.
