Reasons for Tooth Extraction

Dr. Erin Perry performs extractions in Calgary, AB as the last option. We work hard to preserve and treat natural teeth as far as possible, but extractions may be unavoidable in some cases. We may need to pull teeth that have been damaged beyond repair to prevent pain at a later stage as the crack may affect the tooth root under the gums.

Similarly, we may need to extract impacted teeth that have not fully erupted from the gums. Wisdom teeth, located behind the rear molars, are particularly prone to impaction. An overcrowded dentition is one of the primary causes of impacted teeth.

An impacted tooth often causes other teeth to tilt, rotate or become displaced. They may also result in the formation of infection and cysts in the oral cavity. Patients may need either a simple or surgical extraction.

Simple Extractions

Our experienced dentist in Calgary, AB will perform a simple extraction for a visible tooth that may be diseased, fractured, or coming in the way of orthodontic treatment like braces.

We may administer local anesthesia (delivered through a gentle injection) or conscious sedation, depending on the patient’s needs. In general, patients can expect a faster healing time after a simple extraction at Poplar Dental.

Surgical Extractions

Dr. Perry will perform a surgical tooth extraction to pull impacted teeth. Surgical extractions near you will involve making an incision in the gums to access the tooth. Patients may need to take one or two days off from work to recover from a surgical extraction.

Post-Extraction Care

Patients should refrain from consuming very hot, cold, or hard foods. Please consume soft foods like puddings or Jell-O for the first 48 hours. Our dentist will prescribe effective medication to control any lingering soreness.
