Tooth Extraction
Glendale, AZ

Reasons Teeth May Be Extracted Include:

•  Severe tooth decay or infection
•  Extra teeth that are blocking other teeth from growing in (supernumerary teeth)
•  Severe gum disease
•  Orthodontic treatment
•  Non-restorable teeth
•  Fractured teeth
•  Cosmetic reasons

Extractions are usually reserved only for cases in which no other treatment option will cure the infection or problem.

What to Expect From Your Tooth Extraction

There are two main types of extractions (with erupted teeth):

Simple extractions: removal of teeth that are visible and do not necessitate bone/tissue removal.

Surgical Extractions: those that require an incision into the tissue and/or bone with bone removal for improved access and removal.

With impacted teeth that are not completely erupted into the oral cavity, there is a different classification:
•  1. erupted teeth that are completely into the oral cavity.
•  2. soft tissue impaction- when all/part of the tooth is covered with tissue , yet the crown is not in any way covered by bone.
•  3. partial bony impaction- when part of the crown is covered with bone/tissue while part of the crown is not.
•  4. full bony impaction- when all of the crown is covered with bone /tissue.

Tooth extractions, both simple and surgical, are common procedures performed on a regular basis. To schedule your consultation for a tooth extraction, contact Dr. Allard in Glendale, AZ today.
