Reasons For Tooth Extraction
There are various reasons why pulling a tooth may be necessary. We can take care of all tooth extractions at our office!
Impacted Wisdom Teeth: when your wisdom teeth fail to grow in properly or grow at an angle so great that they push other teeth out of alignment, surgical extraction is necessary. It is performed to protect your other teeth from being pushed out of alignment.
Severe Tooth Decay: in many cases, a decayed tooth can be saved using a filling, crown, root canal, or other means of preservation. In cases where the decay has severely damaged the structure of the tooth, extraction becomes necessary..
Severe tooth decay can also lead to infection. If a tooth or your gums become infected, there is the risk that the infection could spread to neighboring teeth, further into your gums, or even into your jawbone. If severe infection has occurred or is possible, we will extract the tooth to preserve the health of the rest of your mouth.
Crowded Mouth: Many patients simply have a mouth too small to fit all their teeth – this is a major reason for misaligned teeth! If you want to seek alignment solutions like ClearCorrect, extraction of crowded teeth may be necessary. This will give your mouth the room it needs to have for your teeth to move into the perfect spot.
When teeth are lost, either by accident or due to extraction, your bone can shrink. This loss of bone mass can lead to further tooth loss, which we never want to have happen! We can preserve the sockets of your extracted teeth using bone growth supplements that are placed directly into the socket. This is ideal for patients who are planning to get either an implant or a bridge once healing has completed.
