There are certain circumstances when a tooth must be removed completely from the mouth which in turn can affect your smile and the way your teeth bite together. This treatment is called a tooth extraction. Generally, a tooth extraction is performed so the decay that has irreparably damaged a tooth does not affect the rest of your smile. At Advanced Family Dental Care, we understand that losing a tooth can be traumatic and may be a major blow to your confidence. After gently and skillfully removing a damaged tooth, our caring dental team will provide multiple restorative and cosmetic dentistry options to replace the missing tooth and restore your beautiful smile.
Another type of tooth extraction is the removal of your third molars, which are commonly called wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are the last of your permanent teeth to erupt from the gumline of your smile. By this point, there is often not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grown in properly. Many times, wisdom teeth grow in sideways and become impacted. This can cause a painful infection and lead to other complications. To keep your smile healthy and bright, we will remove your wisdom teeth. As with all of our tooth extractions in Anchorage, Alaska, our compassionate dentist, Dr. Dustin Wilde, strives to make you feel as comfortable as possible during the treatment process.
