Our primary goal at Northern Trails Dental Care in Gwinn, Michigan is to keep all of your teeth healthy (and in your mouth) for as long as possible. However, there are many reasons it may be in your best interest to have a tooth extracted.
Some of the most common reasons for tooth extractions include:
While, for many patients, wisdom teeth come in just fine and don’t cause any problems, they can be quite problematic for others. Wisdom teeth can cause excessive crowding, alignment, and bite problems, and they can also be impacted which means they are at an angle where they can’t erupt properly causing a lot of pain for the patient.
Whatever the reason, Dr. Buck will be sure to go over all of the details of the procedure with you to address any questions or concerns you may have. She will make you feel comfortable and at ease, and will use a combination of sedation and anesthetic to make sure you drift off to sleep and don’t feel a thing. She will provide you with specific post-op instructions to ensure the fastest, most comfortable recovery.
