Why Might You Need A Tooth Extraction?


Wisdom Teeth

If they are impacted or cause crowding in your mouth, it is best that you have them removed.


Preparation for Implants

Before implanting a new one, it’s essential to extract the old tooth to make room for the dental implant post.


Painful or Broken Teeth

When pain becomes unbearable, or teeth can no longer function well, removal can help.


Impacted Canines

Impacted teeth can be quite painful and can damage otherwise healthy teeth.

Problems With Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth extractions are the most common reason people need to have teeth removed through oral surgery, and there are serious problems that can arise if you do not have them removed.


  • When wisdom teeth have partially erupted, the opening around the tooth allows bacteria to grow. This potentially leads to infection.
  • The pressure from erupting wisdom teeth can cause other teeth to move, disrupting orthodontic or natural alignment of teeth.
  • The most serious problem than can occur from not having your wisdom teeth removed is cysts forming around the erupted wisdom teeth. This can lead to the destruction of the jaw bone, along with considerable pain.
  • If wisdom teeth are developing on an angle, this means your jawbone doesn’t have enough room for the incoming molars, known as impacted wisdom teeth, as shown in the image on the left.

What Is A Root Canal? And When Do You Need One?

When the pulp of the tooth becomes badly damaged or infected, a root canal, or endodontic treatment, is done to save a tooth from having to be pulled.

The pulp of the tooth can be affected by a cracked or chipped tooth, a deep cavity, or repeated dental treatment to the tooth.

If you are experiencing pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness with touching or chewing, discolouration of the tooth, swelling, or tenderness in nearby bone and gum tissues, you could be in need of a root canal.

General Dentist

Being able to see the “behind-the-scenes” action when I was working in various clinics made me fall in love with dentistry and decide to pursue and obtain my DDS from UBC. Now, I am a member of British Columbia Dental Association and the Vancouver and District Dental Society.

A smile really can radiate confidence. I love that in a single visit, I can change my patients’ attitudes about themselves and, in a way, change their lives. I get to know each and every one of my patients, to make sure that I know their needs and concerns thoroughly.
