Tooth Extractions in Waterloo & Kitchener

Dr. Lee will always try to preserve a tooth whenever possible. However, for a number of reasons, a tooth may have to be taken out to preserve the well being of your mouth.


Besides removing a tooth that is severely decayed or damaged, another common cause to remove a tooth is if it’s an impacted wisdom tooth. Impacted wisdom teeth are the third molars located at the back of your mouth and the last to erupt. They can cause problems when they fail to erupt properly by forcing their way into the mouth and applying continuous pressure against adjacent teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause severe pain, heavy swelling, infection, and the formation of cysts. Thus, to prevent such complications, we may recommend removing the wisdom tooth.


Before extracting any tooth, we will perform a thorough examination, which includes the use of digital x-rays, to get a complete overview of your mouth. We will consider all of your options, and if an tooth extraction is recommended, it will be carried out by our skilled dental team or referred to a specialist if needed. All of our tooth extractions are performed using local anesthesia to ensure your complete safety and comfort.
