When is Extraction Necessary?

Despite the best efforts to restore health to a tooth, sometimes the damage has progressed to a stage where the only option for maintaining oral health is to extract it. Tooth decay and damage that extends below the gum line or enters the tooth’s root and inner chamber can only be corrected by extraction. Extraction also protects neighboring teeth and gums from advancing infection. 

There are several other reasons extraction may be necessary. Sometimes younger patients require extractions, so their adult teeth can erupt effectively. Impacted wisdom teeth are often removed to prevent crowding and avoid decay. Older patients may find relief from a toothache after a badly infected tooth is removed. Many who suffer from advanced forms of gum disease require the extraction of several or all their teeth. 

To summarize, extractions may be performed for the following reasons:

  • Infection 
  • Gum Disease
  • Damage
  • To Make room for adult teeth
  • Remove impacted teeth

Alternative Restorations Following Extraction 

Whether dental problems are from damage, crowding, or gum disease, tooth extractions provide relief and provide you with restoration options for regaining a healthy smile.  Dental implant restorations can replace teeth with a prosthetic that looks and feels like a natural tooth. There are also fixed bridges and dentures which restore function and aesthetics to your smile.
