WHEN ARE TOOTH EXTRACTIONS NECESSARY?

August 30, 2018

Although the teeth are the strongest material in our bodies, they are exposed to a variety of acids, sugars, and toxins. The result of this daily abuse on our Teeth can result in the extraction of our pearly whites. However, it is not always ideal to pull a tooth, you just might end up making things worse for yourself.

3 Situations That Are Ideal For Tooth Extraction

Severe Decay

In the case where the tooth is non-repairable with a standard root canal procedure, it is ideal that you extract the tooth to prevent further infection to the bone Itself.

Wisdom Tooth

The wisdom tooth is a common topic in the world of dentistry. However, contrary to widespread belief, not all wisdom teeth need to be removed. If there is enough space in the mouth to accommodate the new growth the tooth can grow in just fine. Yet, if it grows in impacted or doesn’t manage to shift out of the gums extraction is needed.

Periodontal Disease

This is just another fancy word for gum disease. Gum disease causes the gum line to recede, leaving the tooth unstable and prone to bone degradation. Since gum disease is permanent, it’s always better to have the dentist extract the tooth/teeth.

3 Lasting Benefits of Tooth Extraction

Stops disease and infection

By having the afflicted teeth/tooth removed the spread of infection will also be halted from spreading up the bones, and the bloodstream.

Lessens Pain

Pulling teeth is no doubt painful. It’s even used as a term to describe a painful situation. While this may be the case, when it comes to the overall health of the teeth extraction may lessen pain eventually.

Damage Reversal

Even though damage from tooth and gum disease are often irreversible, this doesn’t mean that you can’t get a replacement installed. Once the dentist has extracted the tooth, it’s now possible to carry out installments, replacements, and dental implants.
