Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does removing a tooth hurt?

Ironically, the amount of pain most individuals feel with the infected or damaged tooth outweighs the near non-existent discomfort they would feel if they had the tooth extracted.
Q: What is a tooth extraction?
A: It is the careful and precise removal of a tooth from your mouth due to identified reasons that would otherwise not be curable if the tooth remained.
Q: Why remove the tooth?
A: If your dentist advises extraction, there is a valid reason for it. The following list is a non-exhaustive representation of why removing your tooth is more beneficial than leaving it in your mouth:
- More conservative procedure won’t save the tooth
- A failed root canal treatment
- Impacted teeth
- Angular growth
Q: What are the benefits?
A: Depending on the reason for removing the tooth or teeth the benefits can vary. On a general note, the alignment of your teeth can be threatened by an impacted wisdom tooth or the tooth growing in at an angle. Keeping your teeth aligned reduces the chances for a myriad of oral health issues and concerns. Also, removing the tooth has a high percentage of remedying the discomfort or even pain you scheduled the visit for in the first place.
