With the help of our dentists, you may determine together that a tooth extraction needs to be performed for a number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they’ve decayed, have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken beyond repair. Other teeth may require removal because they’re not well-positioned in the mouth, or as part of the preparation process for orthodontic treatment.
Just removing one tooth can cause other teeth to shift, impacting your chewing abilities and causing you to develop problems with your jaw joint. This all has a considerable effect on your dental health.
To prevent these complications, our dental team will discuss with you all the available alternatives to extractions, including replacement in the event that a tooth is removed.
