When restorative dental treatment cannot save a severely damaged or infected tooth, or when wisdom teeth become impacted and cause intense discomfort, Dr. Mischenko may recommend tooth extraction.
General tooth extraction involves gently removing a tooth by carefully loosening the root(s) within the jawbone socket. Dr. Mischenko only recommends the procedure as a last resort, preferring instead to preserve healthy tooth structure whenever possible.
Some cases, such as severely impacted wisdom teeth and fractured roots, might call for complex surgical tooth extraction. In such cases, Dr. Mischenko can refer you to a caring, highly-experienced oral surgeon.
