Routine Extractions are a common procedure and are normally a result of tooth decay or a tooth that has grown abnormally and is causing overcrowding and pain to the patient. One of our dentists will administer local anaesthetic to the jaw and then they will start extracting the tooth.
Impacted Teeth occur when a tooth is trying to emerge and gets stuck in gum tissue or bone. When this happens it may change the course of direction of the tooth causing it to twist and emerge at an angle. Impacted teeth are normally caused by overcrowding and wisdom teeth are an example of this.
