Teeth Extractions

Ensuring Optimal Oral Health

Teeth extractions are dental procedures performed to remove one or more teeth from the mouth. While the primary goal of our dentists in San Antonio is to preserve natural teeth, there are situations where extractions become essential for a patient’s overall oral health.

Common Reasons for Teeth Extractions

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. Due to limited space in the mouth, these teeth often lead to complications.

Why is Wisdom Teeth Removal Necessary?

Impaction: Wisdom teeth can become trapped in the jawbone or gums, causing discomfort and swelling.

Misalignment: As they emerge, wisdom teeth can push neighboring teeth, leading to bite issues.

Decay or Infection: Partially erupted wisdom teeth are challenging to clean, making them prone to decay and gum disease.
