Tooth Extraction

An extraction is the removal of a tooth from the jawbone due to decay or because it has been severely damaged.  Almeida Family Dentistry will do all we can to save the tooth by correcting the issue with a filling, crown or other procedure, but sometime extraction is the only solution.

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that typically come in when people hit their late teens or early twenties.  These teeth usually come in misaligned and require removal to avoid crowding, or damage to the adjacent teeth, jawbone and nerves.
