Wisdom Teeth Removal & Extractions
Many people have their wisdom teeth removed due to overcrowding in the jaw. Dr. Trinh-Pham does wisdom teeth removal as well as tooth extractions when other teeth become too damaged to save.
It is important to consider what will be done with the empty space after a tooth is removed. Wisdom teeth are in the back of the mouth, so those sites will heal on their own with no complications. But if we extract another tooth and the extraction site is not properly prepared, the jawbone will degenerate and change shape during healing. This can cause other teeth to shift and affect your ability to speak and chew.
If you want to fill spaces with dental implants, a sturdy jawbone is necessary to support the implant. If you opt for a dental bridge, the bridge must be molded and placed before the teeth shift. Dr. Trinh-Pham is always open to a conversation about what you plan to do with your extraction site before removing a tooth.
