Tooth Extraction in Baltimore


At Waterfront Dental

If a tooth has become badly damaged or infected and it cannot be fixed with root canal therapy, Dr. Merguerian may suggest an extraction. Signs that a tooth is infected are extreme sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures and painful chewing. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment for a gentle tooth extraction in Baltimore.


Do Tooth Extractions Hurt?

Tooth extraction is a fairly common procedure and they are made as painless as possible with a local anesthetic. Dr. Merguerian is skilled and gentle, and she will make sure you are comfortable during your treatment. Our friendly team is here to answer any questions about pre and post-op care and help you take care of your smile even after your tooth is removed.

Prevent Dental Complications

Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

If a wisdom tooth is misaligned or only partially erupted through the gums, extraction may be necessary. Misaligned wisdom teeth can cause crowding or damage to adjacent teeth, leading to potential issues in the future. To prevent future dental health problems, Dr. Merguerian may recommend extracting your wisdom teeth.

Unlike other teeth, our wisdom teeth USUALLY come in between the ages of 17 and 25. Unfortunately, most people do not have enough space in their mouths for these late arrivals. This often leads to complications such as impacted teeth, which fail to fully erupt and are prone to infection, causing pain and discomfort. At our Baltimore office, we offer both basic and surgical tooth extractions. To determine if extraction is necessary for your teeth, simply schedule a consultation with Dr. Dawn Merguerian at Waterfront Dental.

That I Need An Extraction?

If your wisdom teeth are coming in and they are causing you symptoms like pain, discomfort, and jaw stiffness, this is a sign that they may not be erupting properly, and they could be damaging your other teeth. We recommend seeing Dr. Dawn Merguerian for an appointment. She can examine your mouth, determine if your wisdom teeth need to be removed, and provide you with more information about the extraction process.

The symptoms of a damaged tooth that may require an extraction vary, depending on the reason it’s been damaged. If your tooth is very loose due to gum disease, it may need to be removed. If your tooth has been severely cracked or damaged by an oral injury, we may not be able to save it and may recommend extraction. Teeth that are infected may need extraction if they look grayish or discolored, or you no longer feel any pain in the affected tooth. This indicates that the tooth has died, and can no longer be saved with a root canal.
