General Tooth Extractions
Protect Oral Health and Prepare for Dental Treatment
Adult teeth are meant to last a lifetime, but they can fall out due to disease, injury, developmental issues, or other reasons. When a tooth is badly damaged or decayed, it may need to be extracted in order to prevent the infection from spreading to your other teeth. Sometimes, a tooth must be removed in order to prepare for future dental work or orthodontic treatment.
Reasons for Needing a Tooth Pulled
- Overcrowding, which leads to crooked teeth, gum disease, and jaw pain
- A tooth that is damaged beyond repair
- A decayed or infected tooth that poses a threat to nearby teeth
- Preparing for braces
- Loose teeth caused by periodontal disease
