At Bright Smile Dental, we want to do our best to help save teeth instead of having to extract them. However, we know that an extraction is at times the best option to best support your dental needs. Tooth extraction is a routine dental procedure that is performed to prevent complicated dental problems and to treat a number of illnesses. It is important to preserve healthy tooth structure, and extracting a severely damaged tooth is often the best solution for protecting your dental health and sparing you from discomfort in the future.
If your tooth has sustained damage from an accident, sports-related injury, fall, or tooth decay, and we are unable to save it, extracting the tooth it may be the best option. Other reasons to remove a tooth may include overcrowding within the mouth, failed root canals, or for orthodontic purposes. By providing a thorough examination, will do our very best to share all of your options with you so that you can make the best informed decision for your oral health. If a tooth replacement is required, we can also share those best options with you.
As adults, we sometimes neglect going to the dentist because our family always comes first. If it's been a number of years without the proper oral hygiene and checkups, then the cavities will grow to a point where your tooth is non-restorable and a tooth extraction is needed.
Remember, that restoring your smile and dental health is extremely important, unfilled space in your smile will shift and possibly cause more problems. Please consult with one of our dentists.
