Common Reasons for Tooth Extractions
Whenever we can, our dentists strive to help you keep your natural teeth. However, some circumstances may be best treated by removing one or more teeth from the mouth and replacing them with artificial teeth. Some of the reasons we may suggest tooth extractions for patients include decaying teeth, injured or broken teeth, infection or risk of infection, or an overcrowded mouth.
What Can Be Done About Missing Teeth?
It’s always best to have a full, even bite, which is why we focus on extracting and replacing teeth whenever it’s necessary. Before we remove your tooth, our dental team will talk to you about potential restorative options to replace the tooth. This may include dental bridges, dental implants, partial or full dentures, or other restorative solutions. These can help ensure that you can chew, speak, and smile normally, and that your other teeth won’t move or develop issues as a result of the missing tooth or teeth.
