At Flossophy Dental, we understand that permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime. However, that isn’t always the case. For instance, when a tooth becomes damaged beyond repair, an extraction typically becomes necessary. We’d like you to know that before one of our doctors at Flossophy Dental ever considers extraction, every effort will be made to repair and restore your tooth first.
Aside from wisdom teeth removal, other reasons for extractions may include:
- Severe tooth damage/trauma – some teeth have such extensive decay and damage (broken or cracked) that repair is not possible.
- Orthodontic treatment – people getting braces may need teeth extracted to create room for teeth that are being moved into place.
- Some teeth may need to be extracted if they have the potential of becoming infected.
- Extra teeth – extra teeth may block other teeth from erupting, therefore, will require extraction.
If you have a tooth that is causing you pain, please give us a call to discuss your treatment options.
