If you need to have a tooth removed, you can trust Bayshore Dental Center. We have a team of highly qualified dental professionals who make dental care a comfortable and rewarding experience – even during a tooth extraction. Although a tooth extraction may sound intimidating, our practice is equipped with the latest in dental technology and advanced comfort techniques to ensure your discomfort is minimal. While Dr. Sheehy makes every effort save your natural teeth when possible, it may be necessary to have a tooth extracted due to the following reasons:
- Severe decay
- Advanced gum disease
- Orthodontic correction
- Fractured teeth or roots
- Impacted teeth
Regardless of the reason for your tooth extraction, Bayshore Dental Center will extend superior, patient-centered family dental care during your visit. We keep patients well informed about their procedure and our extraction methods include careful attention to preserve the surrounding bone and tissue. We work hard to better your smile, in health, aesthetics and function, in a way that is most comfortable and convenient to our patients.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
At Bayshore Dental Center, we take a proactive approach to wisdom teeth removal to help patients avoid more serious and costly dental problems. Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that typically emerge between the ages of 16-20. Unfortunately, wisdom teeth are often problematic. They can become impacted when the jaw has inadequate space and they may also grow sideways, partially erupt through the gum or get trapped beneath the gum and bone. While they do not always cause complications, removing your wisdom teeth can save you from disruptive dental issues such as misalignment, jaw cysts, bone loss and gum infection. Just like our other general and restorative dental procedures, our team takes extra care to provide the most comfortable experience possible.
