Default Dental Question

So, I have a three year old hedgehog that has had three abscessed teeth so far in the last six months or so.
I'm starting to get a little frustrated because I don't know what I'm doing wrong... And I feel like a bad parent... And I feel bad every time he has to go through it.
So, I was wondering if it's possible for the vet to just remove all of his teeth and for him to just be put on a wet food diet for the remainder of his life?
Hopefully preventing him from going through this a fourth time?
If it's not possible for all of his teeth to be extracted and him to not survive, please tell me what I'm doing wrong and I'll change it.
I just don't know what to do. He's the first hedgehog I've ever owned and I'm feeling stuck.
