Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is a dental procedure that is typically reserved for cases where a tooth is damaged or cannot be saved through other dental treatments. Here are some common reasons why you may need a tooth extraction

Severe Tooth Decay: If tooth decay has damaged the tooth beyond repair, extraction may be necessary to prevent further damage or infection.

Gum Disease: Advanced gum disease can cause teeth to become loose and eventually fall out. In some cases, extraction may be necessary to remove a damaged or infected tooth.

Overcrowding: If your mouth is overcrowded and there isn’t enough room for all your teeth, extraction may be necessary to make room for proper alignment.

Impacted Teeth: If a tooth is unable to emerge fully from the gum line, it is considered impacted. Impacted teeth can cause pain, swelling, and infection, and may need to be extracted.


Determining The Right Timing For Tooth Extraction

The best time to have a tooth extraction depends on the reason for the extraction. If a tooth is causing significant pain or discomfort, extraction may be necessary right away to alleviate symptoms and prevent further damage. In other cases, such as overcrowding or impacted teeth, extraction may be recommended as part of a long-term treatment plan.
