At One Dental Care our ultimate goal is to protect our patient’s smiles, however, in certain situations, the best option for a patient may be to remove a tooth. One Dental Care is proud to offer simple, surgical and even wisdom tooth extractions in Billerica for patients in need. Not sure if you need a tooth extracted? Feel free to contact One Dental Care to schedule an appointment, we’d be more than happy to evaluate your affected tooth to determine the best treatment option for you and your smile.
When a patient has an affected tooth that is not damaged, decayed or infected, can be completely seen and has fully erupted, a simple tooth extraction in Billerica may be recommended. During a simple tooth extraction, your endodontist will use an elevator to gently loosen the affected tooth. Once the affected tooth has been loosened, forceps are then used to completely remove the tooth.
When the patient has an affected tooth that has not fully erupted, cannot be completely seen or is suffering from infection, decay or damage, a surgical tooth extraction in Billerica may be required. A surgical tooth extraction is quite similar to a simple tooth extraction; however, an incision may be made to access the tooth. Some situations may also require the tooth to be broken into smaller pieces in order to be fully removed.
Wisdom teeth (the 3rd molars that erupt between 17-25) are actually the most common reason we extract teeth. We recommend a consultation to determine if you or a loved one needs wisdom tooth removal in Billerica.
