Tooth Extractions

If you are experiencing extreme sensitivity or are suffering from advanced periodontal disease, you may be required a tooth extractions. Keeping it in can lead to a lot of pain. This means that you may end up causing yourself a lot of health problems in the future. You could end up with an abscess, gum disease, and a whole lot more pain.

The moment you have problems with a tooth, you need to make an appointment with a dentist for a tooth extractions. The tooth may have some rot. If caught early enough, a cavity can be filled with resin or even silver. From there, the tooth is strong enough to stay in the mouth. If the rot has overtaken the tooth, though, it may have to be removed.

If the tooth is causing overcrowding, tooth extraction may also be in order. For example, if you have a tooth that has shifted and is pushing the other teeth so they become crooked, it will have to be removed to avoid damaging all of the other teeth in your mouth. A dentist will be able to tell you whether this is in order or if braces would be better to handle the problem.

In the event that you really do need a tooth extraction, you need to think about the overall appearance of your mouth afterward. If it's a third molar/wisdom tooth, you never have to worry about replacing it because it was extra anyways. However, if it's one of the teeth in the front of your mouth, you may want to replace it for aesthetic purposes.
