Gain Better Oral Health by Getting Rid of Bad Teeth

In a perfect world, you would keep all your teeth for life. In the real world, you or someone you care about may need teeth extracted for a variety of reasons:

  • Severe Damage – We will repair a tooth whenever we can. If a break or a crack is too bad to fix with a crown, then we will recommend removing and replacing the tooth.
  • Severe Decay – Just like with dental injuries, decay can leave a tooth too weak for a filling or crown. Again, this is a situation when remove and replace is your best option.
  • Orthodontic Preparation – If crowding is contributing to your crooked smile, taking out a tooth or a few teeth could make your orthodontic treatment much easier and more effective.
  • Preparation for Implants – Sometimes is it easier to take out remaining teeth, so you can get implant-supported dentures.

Avoid Dental Problems With Wisdom Teeth Removal

Many people need their wisdom teeth extracted. This can save them from a lifetime of dental problems, including pain, tooth decay, and gum infections. Wisdom teeth are your third molars. Most people get these teeth in their late teens or early 20s. With regular dental checkups, we can monitor changes in your teeth with digital X-rays. These often can reveal whether your wisdom teeth are likely to cause problems.

You or your family member might need your wisdom teeth removed if they

  • Erupt in a way that they become impacted
  • Are likely to cause overcrowding
  • Cause pain or discomfort
  • Will be too difficult to brush or floss properly

Sedation is always available if you have anxiety about oral surgery procedures. After your procedure, our team members will give you thorough aftercare instructions, so you can heal without additional problems.

Get your mouth back to optimal health with oral surgery in Bloomington, MN. For compassionate dental care, call Weddell Dental today at 952-679-1365 or make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

When would I need oral surgery?

Several situations require oral surgery. If you have a problem tooth that is not able to be saved, we can extract it quickly and gently. We can remove wisdom teeth that are putting your other teeth at risk, too.

When is oral surgery covered by insurance?

Your dental insurance or medical insurance may cover a portion of your oral surgery cost. We recommend you check with your individual carriers to find out what they will and won’t pay for before you have any work done. That way there aren’t any big surprises in store for you. As a convenience, we offer third-party financing through CareCredit.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

After your oral surgery, you should not exercise at all for the first 24 hours. Doing too much too soon can increase your healing time. For example, strenuous exercise can loosen the blood clot on an extraction site and cause a painful condition known as dry socket. After the first day, limit your exercise to low-impact activities for several more days to prevent complications.
