Tooth Removal

Dr. Catherine Major offers tooth removals/extractions, including wisdom teeth removal.

General Extractions

Why might I need a tooth removal/extraction?

You may need a tooth removed if a tooth infection is damaging the surrounding bone or is causing you discomfort. Dr. Major will consult with you to determine whether or not an extraction is necessary

How does the tooth removal procedure work?

We usually begin the procedure with a local anesthetic to try and make you feel comfortable during the appointment. We use dental tools to loosen the tooth from its socket before its removal.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Why might I need my wisdom teeth extracted?

Wisdom teeth are often removed if they affect your jaw, gums and/or teeth in the surrounding area. Impacted wisdom teeth are unable to fully erupt which can lead to bacteria and food getting trapped. This can lead to decay, infection and pain.

When should I get my wisdom teeth extracted?

Every patient is different, so please consult your dentist if your wisdom teeth are causing you discomfort.
