You May Be a Candidate for Tooth Removal

Whenever possible, periodontists like patients to keep their natural teeth. However, there are some circumstances that make tooth extraction a necessary option:

If a tooth is decayed, the first objective of any dental provider will be to try to save it. If the decay has progressed too far, an extraction may be needed.

Teeth can become damaged because of many factors, such as accidents or trauma to the mouth. Although some damaged teeth are fixable, others are not.

One of the most frequently discussed types of tooth extraction is wisdom tooth removal. Wisdom teeth can become impacted (never erupting, or only partially erupting, above the gum line.) This can be uncomfortable and cause other dental issues. By removing the wisdom teeth, the remaining teeth experience less overcrowding stress.

Advanced periodontal disease, periodontitis, eventually leads to a breakdown of bone density. If the bone surrounding a tooth is incapable of sustaining the tooth, the tooth may require extraction.

Many orthodontists request that patients have teeth removed before the placement of traditional or clear braces. This allows the teeth to move more easily into a straight position.

In most cases, root canals are an excellent way to protect abscessed (infected) teeth from extraction. However, some teeth do not respond to root canal treatment and may need to be removed.

Replace a Missing Tooth With Dental Implants

After having a tooth extraction, you should consider your options for replacing your missing tooth. While temporary prostheses or bridges can be created, there is a permanent solution: dental implants. Dental implants function like regular teeth. They are surgically embedded via a titanium-based post into the jawbone and look just like the rest of the teeth in your mouth.

To find out if dental implants are the right solution after your tooth extraction, please talk to Dr. Leavitt during your evaluation appointment.
