Reasons for Tooth Extractions
If we recommend extraction, it will likely be for one of the following reasons:
The tooth is too severely damaged or decayed for a dental crown
You have severe gum disease that has weakened the jaw bone
We need to make room for a new denture
You need to undergo orthodontic treatment, but the teeth are overcrowded
Baby teeth have not naturally come out and are preventing the permanent teeth from erupting in a healthy way

Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Gentle Removal of Hurting Third Molars
Around their late teenage and early adult years, your child will grow in their third set of molars, also called wisdom teeth. In some patients, these teeth erupt without a problem, but most others simply do not have room in their arches for these extra teeth. As a result, these teeth can push against the other teeth, causing pain, infections, or alignment problems. We’ll keep a close eye on patients within this age range and recommend wisdom tooth extractions in Bellevue, WA when necessary.
Healing After Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Whether it’s you or your child, it’s important to take special care after wisdom tooth extraction. Although we’ll provide more specific instructions in person, here are some general guidelines to follow in order to heal properly:
Get plenty of rest and avoid rigorous activities for a few days.
Keep clean gauze on the site and allow a blood clot to form there.
Put a cold compress on your face to control any swelling.
Rinse gently with warm salt water to keep the site clean.
Do not use a straw for at least 48 hours.
