Why Your Teeth Might Need to be Extracted

One of the most frequently carried out operations in dental surgery is tooth extraction. No one ever wishes to lose a tooth, but when your dentist or oral surgeon advises it, doing so can be advantageous medically and improve your mouth's general health. Despite the procedure's potential for intimidation, you can rest easy knowing that a highly skilled and knowledgeable team is handling things for you.


Why Your Teeth Might Need to be Extracted
Depending on your oral health needs, dental treatment may have two primary goals: preventing issues from worsening. In some extreme cases of oral health problems, the only feasible way to stop further harm to your oral health is to have a compromised tooth extracted before it can cause other problems. The habit of removing wisdom teeth is widespread. There are, however, additional justifications for getting teeth removed, such as:


  • Flawed tooth structure: Not all broken teeth need to be extracted. Most fractured or broken teeth can be effectively repaired and preserved with a custom-designed restoration. But a strong, natural dental structure must still be present for a restoration to be saved and kept in place. The oral tissues and nearby tooth structures may occasionally be in peril from tooth damage that is too severe to fix. To protect the remainder of your oral health, you should have the tooth extracted if it cannot be saved and replaced as soon as possible.
  • Tooth Infections: While some teeth are less likely to sustain structural damage, teeth can ultimately become severely infected. The longer it goes untreated, this infection, also known as dental decay, can extend farther into the structure of your teeth. If dental decay is detected early and addressed, most of your healthy, natural tooth structure can be preserved. On the other hand, a seriously decayed tooth might not be possible to save. Due to the elevated possibility of the infection spreading to additional teeth, it might even endanger your oral health.
  • Tooth impaction: Despite happening less frequently than dental decay, third molar impaction, also known as wisdom tooth impaction, is a common cause of tooth extraction in some individuals. Wisdom teeth become impactions when there is not enough room at the end of your tooth ridges for the third molars to erupt normally.


After it is removed, you will require new teeth. If the gap is not closed, your jawbone might not receive enough stimulation, leading to a loss of density and muscle. Because chewing can discharge minerals into the bloodstream, eating issues may result in nutritional deficiencies. Your dentist will take precise images of your mouth before the procedure to better grasp what is needed and ensure the surgery is successful.
