Visiting a Mississauga area dentist for tooth extraction
Patients in the Mississauga area who believe they may need
to visit a dentist for tooth extraction are encouraged to speak to the
team at Dentistry on 10. Our professionals provide comprehensive,

We know that there are times in which teeth may need to be extracted –
especially wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth, known as the “third molars,” are teeth that erupt through the gum line at the back of the mouth typically in the late teen years or early adulthood. They often cause many problems. The can become impacted, unable to erupt through the gum line, resulting in extreme pain. Even if they do erupt through into the dental arch, they can increase the risk of developing periodontal disease or experiencing dental decay because they can be difficult to brush and floss. Some patients who have gone through extensive orthodontic work may want to avoid having their wisdom teeth come through as it can affect the alignment of their smiles and require additional services. All of these are reasons patients may consider seeing a dentist for wisdom tooth extraction.
Wisdom teeth are not necessary, and can be removed without replacement. It is common for these teeth to be extracted, especially before they become an issue. Dr. Rina Kotecha and her team of professionals may advise patients to have their wisdom teeth removed before they erupt in order to avoid a wide range of issues. This recommendation will only be made if patients have had an extensive evaluation with the team at Dentistry on 10.
If you live in or around the Mississauga area and want to find out about the benefits of tooth extraction, contact Dr. Rina Kotecha today. She can speak to patients about why tooth extraction may be suggested. This may include wisdom teeth or other teeth within the dental arch. At Dentistry on 10, we can perform both simple extractions of erupted teeth and surgical extractions for teeth that are still underneath the gum line and are expected to become problematic.
