At Brookline Oral Surgery Group, we are dedicated to preserving oral health. That means we go above and beyond to save and restore injured or diseased teeth. But there are situations when extractions are the best solution. Sometimes removing one or more teeth is the only way to avoid more serious problems. In these cases, the tooth is beyond repair. Keep in mind; we never take this decision lightly. Only after we have eliminated all other possibilities, will we remove a tooth. If your Brookline, MA dentist determines that extraction is the right treatment, rest assured you will be treated with top-notch care.
There are several reasons why your dentist might recommend tooth removal, including:
Over time, the human skeleton has changed and evolved. Modern jaws tend to be smaller than our ancestors. There is less room for the last set of teeth, the third molars (wisdom teeth). As a result, wisdom teeth can’t erupt properly. When problems arise, your Brookline, MA dentist might recommend extraction.
You can trust us to exhaust all other options before recommending tooth removal. But if extraction is necessary, we will make the process as comfortable as possible. Contact us today if you think you may need an extraction.
