About Tooth Extractions

Though our adult teeth are meant to last a lifetime, sometimes, for the health of the entire mouth, a tooth simply must go! Some situations that warrant a tooth extraction include: impacted teeth, or teeth that are positioned incorrectly in the mouth or jaw; a tooth that is causing overcrowding in the mouth; a severely decayed tooth; a broken tooth that cannot be repaired; periodontal (gum) disease; and in preparation for orthodontic treatments.

TOOTH EXTRACTIONS

Simple Vs. Surgical Extractions

There are two basic categories of tooth extraction: simple and surgical.

After a tooth extraction, the remaining teeth will inevitably shift and bone loss in the jaw will also occur. Though it is generally not an issue with the removal of wisdom teeth, our dentists might recommend a dental implant or other tooth replacement to be installed in the missing tooth’s place in order to prevent further complications and oral health issues.
