Why is a dental extraction necessary?
Dental extractions can become necessary for various reasons, including:
- Irreparable Tooth Damage
- Loose Teeth Due to Periodontitis
- A Tooth is Impacted in the Gums
- Teeth are Crowding Each Other
- It’s Necessary for Orthodontic Treatment
How can I avoid needing a dental extraction?
Some dental extractions are unavoidable. In situations where a stubborn baby tooth refuses to come out, or several teeth are crowding each other and need to be removed, a dental extraction may be the only treatment that can be added to the patient’s treatment plan. In other cases, untreated tooth decay or dental trauma led to an infection inside the tooth, and a root canal was not performed in time, or the damage made the tooth too weak to be restored. We always recommend visiting our office regularly and scheduling restorative services as soon as possible to avoid needing more invasive and costly treatments.
What are my tooth-replacement options?
If you have one or more teeth that need to be removed and replaced, our team can go over our variety of excellent tooth-replacement options with you during your consultation. If you decide to go with dental implants, your implant placement will take place after your gums have had plenty of time to heal. If you choose to go with a denture or bridge, we can begin creating your custom restoration and have it ready for you to wear even sooner.
The tooth-replacement option that you decide to go with will depend on your needs, preferences, oral health, and budget, so we recommend contacting our office to schedule a consultation!Contact Us
