At Smiles Are Us Park Holme, it is always the priority to save a patient’s tooth, however in some cases, this simply just isn’t possible.

There are a number of signs and symptoms which may indicate you have a problematic tooth requiring extraction. These include:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • A discoloured tooth
  • Unusual markings on a tooth
  • Swollen, red, bleeding, or tender gums around a particular tooth
  • A previous dental filling surrounded by black

  • Periodontal (gum) disease

If you are experiencing any of these dental concerns, please contact our friendly team as soon as possible to schedule a check-up. We will carefully examine your teeth and inform you whether the tooth must be extracted, or if it requires alternative treatment such as root canal therapy.

Gentle Wisdom Teeth Removal

Your wisdom teeth (also known as your third set of molars) are usually your last teeth to erupt, occurring between the ages of 17 – 25. Unfortunately, due to many reasons beyond control, a patient may require one or more of their wisdom teeth to be extracted due to the following concerns:

  • They’re stuck or impacted, preventing them from erupting
  • There is not enough room in your mouth for them to erupt without harming the other teeth
  • They are growing at an angle to the other teeth
  • They are causing misalignment with your other teeth, resulting in bite problems and discomfort
  • The problematic wisdom teeth are causing swollen and tender gums
  • Cysts are forming around the wisdom teeth, which if left untreated, can cause damage to the jaw and surrounding nerves
