There are a number of reasons why a tooth extraction is needed:

  1. The tooth is severely decayed or damaged.
  2. Advanced periodontal disease (“gum disease”) that makes the tooth loose and requiring removal.
  3. Tooth may be broken or infected so much that it cannot be repaired.
  4. The tooth may need removal because it is poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted wisdom teeth)
  5. In preparation for orthodontic treatment (“braces”), teeth extraction may be required to make space or adjust bite alignment.

Problems associated if extracted teeth are not replaced

When a tooth is missing its neighboring teeth will tend to shift, sometimes significantly, which in turn can have a major impact on your dental health. Even the removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and the problem of a possibility that the surrounding teeth of predispose the teeth may shifted. To avoid these complications, in most cases, your dentist will probably always recommend to you to replace the tooth that has been extracted.

Tooth Extraction Questions

How are teeth extraction done?
  1. First evaluation
    • Your dentist will need to examine your mouth and teeth before a determination can be made that a tooth extraction is warranted.
    •  As a part of this examination a x-ray (radiograph) will be taken of the tooth in question. This x-ray will allow your dentist to evaluate both the internal aspects of the tooth as well as the tooth’s root portion and the bone that encases it.
    • Thereafter, your relevant medical history will be taken. Do make sure that you report to your dentist any problems with any previous tooth extractions, any bleeding problems or medical conditions in general. Also, make sure your dentist knows all of the medicines and supplements you are taking to avoid any complications in tooth extraction. As an example, aspirin is known to retard the blood clotting process.
    • If you are worry about pain or anxious, ask your oral surgeon on sedation options whereby pre-arrangements can be made for you.
  2. Tooth extraction treatment
    • Before your tooth extraction your dentist will need to anesthetize (“numb up”) both the tooth that will be extracted and the jawbone and gums that surround it.
