Simple Tooth Extractions
When your tooth is too badly decayed to save, Dr. Trinh or Dr. Suzanna will perform a simple tooth extraction. An extraction may also be recommended by our Mountain View dental team if your tooth is severely fractured or is crowding other healthy teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Not all wisdom teeth need to be extracted, but some do. If your wisdom teeth are impacted, or causing gum disease to develop, you may be a candidate for wisdom tooth surgery. In many situations, it’s best for our dentists to remove your wisdom teeth before they start to jeopardize your health.
We will take a panoramic x-ray imaging to get a complete view of your entire jaw, so we can see the size, location, and developmental trajectory of the wisdom teeth in consideration for removal. At the earliest, wisdom teeth are removed in the mid-teen years, but they don’t always finish developing until you’re closer to 30 years of age.
Do you still have your wisdom teeth? Are they causing you problems? A complete removal is not always the best option. In some patients, the roots of the wisdom teeth in the lower jaw can become entangled in the nerves that supply feeling to your lips, chin, and tongue. In cases such as these, Dr. Trinh and Dr. Suzanna may suggest having a coronectomy performed instead.
A coronectomy procedure allows for the removal of the wisdom teeth without the removal of the roots themselves. This is done by removing the crown of the tooth and leaving the roots intact. A coronectomy can be a safer alternative when a surgical wisdom tooth extraction could risk causing nerve damage.
