What are tooth extractions?
A tooth extraction is the complete removal of a tooth from your jawbone. There are many reasons why Dr. Obiora E. Nkwonta, our skilled dentist, may suggest a tooth extraction. Decay, disease, and trauma can all render a toothless useless or unable to be repaired. A tooth extractions in Seattle, Washington is only performed if it is necessary to maintain the vitality and health of the rest of your smile.
What is wisdom teeth removal?
The impaction of wisdom teeth, or your third molars, is also a common reason for tooth extractions. Wisdom teeth, the last of your teeth to erupt from your gumline, often have difficulty growing in properly. They can get trapped under the gums or jawbone or grow sideways. To prevent painful infections and pressure on your other teeth, we can gently remove wisdom teeth.
