Comfortable Tooth Extractions in Copperas Cove
At Benchmark Family Dental, we will always strive to help you preserve your natural smile. However, there are circumstances that can lead to extraction becoming necessary for the patient’s overall wellbeing. If our doctors determine that you fit into this group, they’ll be sure to handle the procedure as smoothly and comfortably as possible so that you can feel at ease the whole way through.
Do I Need Tooth Extraction?
Common reasons that tooth extraction is needed include:
- The presence of additional teeth that keep needed teeth from erupting properly
- Orthodontic treatment requires the removal of one or more teeth for maximum success
- Primary (“baby”) teeth don’t fall out soon enough to accommodate the arrival of adult teeth
- Accommodating a new full or partial denture
- Concerns regarding wisdom teeth
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
One of the most common reasons for tooth extraction is the development of a patient’s third molars (also known as “wisdom teeth.”) These teeth are the last permanent additions to a patient’s smile, usually arriving when you’re somewhere between 17 to 21 years of age. However, by this point, there is very little space left in the mouth to accommodate wisdom teeth, which can lead to impaction, improper eruption, infections, facial swelling, periodontal disease, considerable pain, and other unpleasant consequences. Our doctors will keep a close eye on this area as patients grow, and we may recommend extraction as a preventive measure if there is a high risk of future complications.
