Dental Extraction in Ajax

Pain Relief That Can Improve Your Dental Health

Dental extractions provide you relief from tooth or mouth pain. The oral surgery procedure is occasionally necessary to treat your tooth decay, gum disease, or impacted wisdom teeth, and sometimes to prepare you for orthodontic treatment.

We usually make our best efforts to save your tooth. But occasionally, the best treatment option is an extraction.

Examples of those conditions include:

  • Unrestorable broken or severely decayed teeth
  • Advanced gum disease
  • Poor tooth development
  • Wisdom teeth
  • Severe orthodontic crowding

Dr. Shields will also discuss the options available for replacing your extracted tooth.

Dental extractions at your Ajax dentist are a comfortable procedure. We provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) sedation along with your local anesthetic to ensure your comfort.

Contact our dental office in Ajax about your tooth, jaw, or mouth pain. Schedule a dental examination to determine if you need a dental extraction.
