Why Do I Need To Extract My Tooth?
Don’t let untreated teeth cost your health or cause pain and embarrassment. Tooth Extraction may be in your best interest in these situations:
When a significant amount of tooth structure is compromised, it is not possible to place a filling or crown.
Risk of Systemic Infection
Toxicity from an abscessed tooth may spread to the jawbone or throughout the body, causing serious health issues.
Advanced Periodontal Disease
Eventually, gum disease attacks ligaments and bones that hold teeth in place, and they cannot be saved
When a tooth is broken below the gum line or the root is fractured, it cannot be repaired.
In some cases, extractions are necessary for effective orthodontic straightening.
Types Of Extractions
Performed by general dentists. Usually, the area where the tooth needs to be removed is numbed, loosens the tooth, and removed with the help of forceps.
Performed by oral surgeons. The dentist will numb the area where the teeth need to be removed and makes a small incision(cut) is made into the gum line to remove the teeth. In very rare cases, it might be necessary to remove the bone around the teeth or cut the teeth in half before the removal
