Extractions That Benefit Oral Health
Several scenarios may warrant the extraction of a tooth, such as:
- Impaction - Teeth such as wisdom molars are at risk of infection if they remain impacted or if they only partially erupt. They can also interfere with orthodontic treatment and cause overcrowding in dentition.
- Gum disease - Bacteria can leave large deposits of tartar on teeth and create deep pockets of infection. This loosens teeth in their sockets and causes bone loss, which can create irreparable damage.
- Cracks - Teeth with large fissures that extend to the roots may require extraction. Fissures may be caused by an accident or advanced tooth decay.
- Infection - If you have a toothache, then chances are damage or decay have given bacteria an entry point into the tooth’s inner chamber. Extraction alleviates toothaches and protects the gums and entire body from further infection.
- Baby Teeth - Sometimes baby teeth do not fall out, preventing adult teeth from emerging into their proper place. Once the baby teeth are removed, your child’s teeth can develop naturally into a healthy, functioning smile.
