Tooth Extraction is More Common Than You Think

Many patients fear they may need to have a tooth extracted after an accident or injury. This is an understandable anxiety, as nearly 74 percent of all adults have had at least one tooth extracted. However, don’t let that stop you from seeking treatment. If a tooth that required extraction is not removed, it could cause serious complications in the future, such as disease, infection or even an impacted wisdom tooth shifting surrounding teeth. Many times, a tooth that is damaged can still be saved with a crown or other form of expert care. Dr. Scott Condie will do everything he can to save a tooth before opting for the extraction route.

Why You May Need a Tooth Extraction

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

In the case of an accident, a damaged tooth may require extraction to prevent infection or damage to surrounding teeth. Emergency care is available in situations of immediate need.

Trauma

In the case of an accident, a damaged tooth may require extraction to prevent infection or damage to surrounding teeth. Emergency care is available in situations of immediate need.

Disease

If periodontal disease has not been treated and resulted in significant damage to the tooth root and gum, then extraction and replacement with a dental implant will be necessary to save the surrounding area.

Orthodontics

If teeth are crowded in your mouth, meaning they are too close together and there is not enough space to align them properly with braces, extraction of out-of-place teeth will make orthodontics possible.

Baby Teeth

While baby teeth normally fall out naturally, there are still many complications that can arise, such as blocking a permanent tooth or growing at an improper position.

Socket Preservation Saves Your Bone for Dental Implants

After a tooth has been extracted, a socket or empty space is left behind where the tooth once was. This socket should be protected from infection and bone loss, especially if dental implants will be used to replace the missing tooth. Dr. Condie uses a technique called socket preservation to prevent and reduce bone loss by filling the socket with a bone graft material. Preserving the bone is necessary for dental implants, your overall health and facial appearance.
