Do You Need Tooth Extraction?

Some of the most common reasons patients may need to have a tooth extracted by our emergency dentist in Harker Heights include:

  • As part of orthodontic treatment (teeth that are blocking the eruption of other teeth or crowding the smile)
  • A child’s “baby teeth” don’t fall out in time to make room for their adult teeth to emerge
  • Crowding and impaction of the third molars with a patient's other teeth
  • As a preparatory treatment for placement of partial and full dentures

Wisdom Teeth – 3rd Molars

Between the ages of 17 and 25, a patient’s wisdom teeth erupt. When this happens, many oral health concerns can arise including crowding that may misalign teeth. They may also be impacted. We recommend patients receive a wisdom tooth evaluation and consultation around the age of 11. We’ll examine these third molars and make recommendations for ongoing evaluation and possibly preventive extraction.
