At Healthy Smiles Dental Care, we understand that there’s no replacement quite like your natural, home-grown tooth. That’s why we always do what we can to preserve them. However, in some cases, tooth extractions from our Flint, MI dentist are the only way we’re able to save your smile. Don’t fret about having a gap in your smile for long though, because we offer beautiful, customized restorations that look and function like your natural pearly whites.
There are several reasons in which you may require a tooth extraction, including some of the following scenarios:
Not everybody is born with wisdom teeth, but for those who are, you’ll likely need them removed between the ages of 17 and 25. Today, our third molars don’t serve as significant purpose, and in many cases, they pose an infection and oral health risk if there’s not enough room in the mouth to allow them to grow in or they’re lodged below the gumline. In these cases, we’ll recommend having them taken out to prevent serious issues from arising down the road.
