Reasons You Could Need A Tooth Extraction

Posted on 10/31/2023 by Greenway Family Dental
Image of a human jaw at Greenway Family Dental in Surprise, AZ.There are numerous reasons why tooth extraction may be necessary. A common reason is when a tooth is severely decayed or irreparably damaged.

Several Oral Problems Can Be Solved Using Extraction

Suppose the decay or injury has reached the tooth's origin. In this situation, it may be necessary to remove the tooth to prevent the spread of infection and preserve the health of the adjacent teeth.

In addition, if a tooth is impacted or affected below the gingival line, you may need to remove it to avoid further complications. This can occur when wisdom teeth or molars lack adequate space to erupt appropriately. Impacted teeth can cause pain, infection, and injury to neighboring teeth, so their extraction is often necessary.

Third, extraction may be necessary if your teeth are too close together because of crowding. If your mouth is too small for all your teeth, you may need to pull some of them so the others can erupt into their proper positions. This procedure is often included with orthodontic care.

Finally, cancer treatment options, including chemotherapy and radiation therapy, sometimes need tooth removal. A compromised immune system makes it harder for the body to fend off disease after receiving these medicines. Let us say you are dealing with a tooth infection or fear one is on the horizon. In such circumstances, extraction might be essential to stop the spread of disease.
