Teeth Extraction

We all assume that permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime. However, there are certain instances where it is necessary for a person to get their teeth extracted. Below-mentioned is some of them:

1. If your tooth is damaged severely due to decay

This usually happens when the tooth decay reaches the centre of the tooth which is the area known as the pulp. The bacteria that produce the decay can affect the pulp area and cause an infection.

In cases like this, one may need to get a root canal procedure to treat the infection. However, if the infection is severe, then there is no other alternative but to get the tooth extracted to prevent the infection from spreading.

2. A fantastic alternative to treat periodontal disease

Periodontal disease is a type of infection of the gums, periodontal ligaments, and other structures that surround the teeth. The earliest stage of periodontal disease is gingivitis, which causes an infection of the gums.

This disease is caused by bacteria that are usually formed hours after eating without brushing. Regular brushing can prevent this. In certain cases, periodontal disease can result in the tooth getting loose. If this happens, tooth extraction is the only option to handle this issue.

3. A great solution to help an impacted tooth

A tooth is generally impacted when it is blocked from coming out, or when the gums prevent the tooth from fully erupting. This usually happens for wisdom teeth. Our experienced dentists at Convergent Dentistry will recommend extracting the impacted tooth to prevent your surrounding teeth from further damage.

Extracting teeth that haven’t come out also reduces the risk of infection and overcrowding. You can rest assured, that we use the latest dental equipment to carry out dental procedures safely. We also ensure by using this dental equipment, our patients are not exposed to any kind of radiation.

4. Prevent your teeth from overcrowding

Extraction of one tooth or several teeth may be required to eliminate overcrowding in the mouth. Tooth extraction is also recommended when the patient has to undergo orthodontic treatment when there is no room for the teeth to move and realign themselves.

We will check on how crowded your teeth are, and if there is more than enough for your teeth to move, there is no need for tooth extraction. However, tooth extraction is highly recommended when there is less space to straighten the alignment of your teeth.

5. Best dental procedure to get after an accident

If a person suffers from an accident like a car collision, and they have damaged their teeth and require dental treatment, the first option is to safeguard the teeth.

Other dental treatments like dental bonding, crowns, bridges, or veneers may be recommended. However, if the issue is unfixable then a tooth extraction may be required.
