Getting a tooth pulled is scary. It’s almost like surgery with its invasive nature and all the preparation involved like anesthesia. There are, however, instances where the best and safest course of action really is just pulling the tooth. Here are a few instances where tooth extraction is necessary.
- Pain: This is probably obvious. Tooth pain may be symptomatic of damage, infection, or cavities. If the pain is too severe, it’s best to consult with your local orthodontist to determine the cause and severity of the pain to see if extraction is necessary.
- Crowding: This is when some teeth erupt larger than normal for the size and shape of your mouth. Sometimes they erupt out of your gums at an angle and push against other teeth, misaligning them. If not treated, crowding causes intense discomfort and in severe cases can result in persistent pain. The best remedy is simply extracting some of the problem teeth.
- Gum Disease: Gum disease might develop if you don’t take adequate care of your teeth and gums. Gum disease may damage not just your gums, but your teeth as well. Bacteria may eat away at the bones that support your teeth, eventually causing your teeth to decay, and it only spreads and spreads to other teeth if left untreated.
- Impacted Wisdom Teeth: These are very common causes for extraction. After they erupt, these teeth frequently begin to grow crookedly or crowd your other teeth, necessitating extraction. They may also stay in the bone, and not erupt at all, or even begin erupting towards the direction of other teeth, causing a significant amount of pain and requiring extraction.
There are many reasons to get a tooth extraction, and a few of these problems may be undetected if you don’t frequently visit your dentist to check up on the state of your teeth and gums. For any and all dental concerns, schedule an appointment with us here at Dr. Bobby Jivnani Dental Clinic.
