Dr. Howard wants to do everything he can to save damaged teeth when he has the opportunity. With that said, there are some instances where a tooth is broken down beyond repair, meaning it has to be removed in order to protect your remaining teeth and oral health. If this is the case, we will always make sure that your comfort levels are met, you’re fully informed on what to expect from treatment, and that you understand why we recommend tooth extractions in Rancho Bernardo, CA.
Most people do not have a mouth large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, which is why wisdom tooth extractions are so common. In some cases, as many as four wisdom teeth can erupt inside the mouth, resulting in dental complications like smile misalignment, crowding, and even infections. If you notice pain in the back of your mouth and you also happen to be between the ages of 18 and 25, visit our dental office so we can perform a detailed examination and determine the best treatment from there.
