You may be dreading the idea of having a tooth pulled, but it really isn’t all that scary. Very often, having a tooth extracted is the best option available for your comfort and overall oral health, and Dr. Karanvir Sibia and staff at Ace Dental are experts when it comes to extractions.
There are a few reasons why you might need a tooth extracted:
It is impacted. This means that it emerges from under the gums at an angle, or maybe it doesn’t emerge completely from under the gums. This can be very painful, and it can cause a variety of problems. An impacted tooth can increase the risk of tooth decay in nearby teeth, gum disease, and infection under the gum tissue because it can be hard to keep clean. It can cause crowding in the mouth that can damage other teeth. Wisdom teeth often need to be extracted because they are impacted.
It is decayed or damaged beyond repair. The decayed tooth must be extracted before it gets infected and the infection spreads.
You may have gum disease, which can cause teeth to become loose.
You may have overcrowding in your mouth, which can lead to more serious chewing and jaw problems (and pain).
You may need braces or other orthodontic treatment.
You may be about to undergo a medical procedure (such as chemotherapy) or you may have a medical condition that is compromising your immune system. If you have these medical issues and an infected tooth, it can be especially dangerous to your health and so the tooth should be removed.
