Dental Extractions

Getting a tooth extracted isn’t a decision that should be taken lightly. Yet, sometimes removing a tooth can be the best way of maintaining the health of the rest of the mouth.

It is vital that you get the right advice in order to make a smart decision on teeth extractions and wisdom teeth removal. Simply leaving a damaged tooth in your mouth can lead to serious complications, although you will also want to give it the best possible chance of surviving.

Your Kennewick dentist will evaluate all of the available options and will do everything possible to avoid teeth extractions. Extracting is the last resort but there is no denying that sometimes it is the only sensible option available for your long-term health.

Professional Teeth Extractions to Keep Your Mouth Healthy

If it turns out that extraction is the best course of action, then it is likely to be for one of the following reasons.

  • Periodontal disease.
  • Severe decay.
  • A tooth has been badly broken and is beyond repair.
  • To cover a tooth with a root canal.
  • Poorly positioned teeth.
  • Wisdom teeth removal because they are impacted or crowding other teeth.

Of course, once teeth extractions have been carried out, it makes sense to get the missing teeth replaced. Failing to do this can result in additional problems, as the remaining teeth shift into the gap, which could cause various dental problems in the future.

Getting a dental implant may be the best solution following an extraction, but your dentist will take the time to explain all of the options to you and make sure that you are comfortable with the suggested solution.
