Philadelphia Tooth Extractions
A tooth may need to be removed for a variety of reasons, but the two main cases for extractions are infection and wisdom tooth removal.
If you are suffering from pain radiating from your jaw or teeth, this may be the sign of infection. Left unaddressed for long enough, tooth pain can worsen, and the infection can spread. If the infection is serious enough and has affected enough of the tooth’s structure, this may be cause for tooth removal. If you are experiencing tooth pain, don’t delay. Contact Advanced Family Smiles and see our experienced dental providers to receive treatment.
The emergence of third molars, or “wisdom teeth,” can cause a variety of problems. These can range from localized pain, to limited jaw mobility, to the possible growth of cysts and infection. Pain caused by erupting molars can spread to the teeth, gums, jaw, and even throughout the shoulder and neck. Wisdom teeth can also interfere with orthodontic work or the natural alignment of your teeth and bite. To prevent complications, our dentists can remove third molars before they erupt, using a topical agent or sedation process.
