As dentists, our goal is to retain and preserve your natural teeth and keep them healthy. However, at times, it is best to have your tooth extracted to avoid further damage. Although some people might feel anxious about tooth extraction, still there is nothing to be worried about if you have an experienced dentist. Your dentist will carefully manipulate the tooth and dislodge the fibers and extract the tooth without trouble.
Reasons for tooth extraction
There can be a number of reasons for extracting a tooth. Here are some reasons why your dentist might need to extract your tooth.
Trauma or Dental injury
In case of trauma or dental injury, the damaged tooth might need a full-coverage through a dental crown, a root canal treatment, or both the treatments. However, sometimes even these methods are unable to effectively restore your tooth to normal function and appearance. In such cases, it might be a better idea to remove the tooth and replace it with a dental implant.
In cases of orthodontic treatment, tooth extraction is suggested in a case of dental crowding. Through tooth extraction, the dentist makes a sufficient amount of space and also aligns the remaining teeth in a proper manner. The teeth which are usually extracted for orthodontic treatments are the first premolars, which are located next to the eyeteeth.
Infected Wisdom Teeth
Timely removal of infected wisdom teeth can avoid damage to the adjoining teeth, bone, gum tissue, and also blood vessels. In case an infected wisdom tooth is in a dire position, then your dentist will recommend its extraction before its roots are entirely created.
In cases where existing baby teeth may prevent the proper positioning of future permanent teeth, the removal of the baby teeth can avoid the need for orthodontic treatment in the future.
