Keeping you and your family’s smile healthy is our top priority at South Texas Dental. We promote preventive dental care to help our patients keep their beautiful smiles for a lifetime. However, it is not always possible to save every tooth. Tooth extraction is always a last resort after all other options have been explored. When a tooth does need to be removed, you can trust our caring dental team to make the procedure as comfortable and painless as possible.
Tooth extractions are usually needed when a tooth is cracked, broken, decayed or has severe alignment issues. While most tooth extractions are performed on adults, in some cases a child will need to have a tooth removed. When this is the case, you can trust our expert pediatric dentists at South Texas Dental to make the experience quick, easy and as painless as possible for your child.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
One of the most common types of tooth to be extracted is the wisdom tooth. While many people have healthy, aligned wisdom teeth that fit perfectly in their mouth, others are not as lucky and require wisdom teeth removal. Some wisdom teeth grow in crooked or become impacted, needing to be surgically removed. Wisdom teeth begin emerging in the late teens, with most people getting their last wisdom tooth in their early twenties.
It is important for teens to have regular checkups to monitor the growth of their wisdom teeth. Our dentists at South Texas Dental can identify any potential issues with your child’s wisdom teeth and offer solutions. If removal is needed, we will ensure that your teen is made comfortable during the procedure.
Tooth extractions are covered under most dental plans, including Medicare. If you or someone in your family needs a tooth extraction or wisdom teeth removal in Dallas, contact one of our South Texas Dental locations today.
