Once your permanent teeth are grown in, there may be some instances where a tooth (or teeth) may need to be extracted. These cases need to be properly diagnosed by a professional dentist—any and all alternatives should be discussed when considering tooth extraction. Reasons for tooth extraction may vary, but often include one or more of the following:
- Preparation for Orthodontic or Cosmetic Treatment
- Bone loss
- Infection or Risk of Infection
- Advanced Periodontal Disease
- Advanced Decay
Under most cases, extraction of the tooth is the last resort to maintain dental health. In order to keep your teeth healthy and functional, it is important that you maintain proper oral hygiene within the home and attend regularly scheduled dental appointments. The odds of detecting decay and preventing infection are greatly increased by scheduling regular exams and cleanings.
