The need to extract a tooth can be for a number of reasons. Most commonly, a tooth that is damaged beyond repair because of decay or is a wisdom tooth need to undergo the process of extraction.
Tooth Extraction is a process where a tooth requires to be pulled out permanently from the jaw bone. It is mainly because of its ill-health or because it is growing in a fashion that is detrimental to the other teeth.
Extraction of a tooth is normally recommended as the tooth has already decayed beyond repair. Extraction helps in preventing the spread of infection to the other teeth or sometimes jaw bone and surrounding soft tissues. Sometimes if a wisdom tooth is growing in the wrong direction, it is advisable to uproot it as it might disturb the alignment of the other teeth.
At Kingsview Dental Calgary, we make sure that the procedure is as least painful as possible. To deliver our promise, we schedule an examination before the actual process.
This session helps us in taking X-Rays and understanding the placement of the tooth, its roots and the surrounding structure as well and the best possible way to extract it. Extraction of tooth provides relief to the patient as the tooth ache subsides. It also helps the other teeth to remain in perfect shape and health.
Dear Valued Patient,
First and foremost, we want to extend our gratitude to all of our patients and community members for understanding the changes we are having to implement because of current events.
The Alberta Dental Association and College has mandated that dental offices only provide emergency services due to COVID-19.
Your health and safety is our priority. In that light, and in an effort to keep everyone safe, we have suspended normal dental care at our office, BUT we are still AVAILABLE to treat DENTAL EMERGENCIES! The last thing we'd want at this time is for patients with a serious infection to go to a medical provider because they could not find a dental provider. That being said, if you encounter someone with a serious dental emergency, please inform them that we are here to help!
All non-essential upcoming appointments will be rescheduled into the future. If you have one coming up, expect a phone call from one of our team members, if you have not already.
We will hopefully have a better outlook in the next few weeks and will keep you updated from our side. We look forward to seeing you all after the crisis and well into the future.
Sincerely, Dr. Kinjal Patel Kingsview Dental
