Times To Take Teeth Out

Taking out a tooth is not something we suggest lightly. However, if we do suggest it, it is because we see a long-term benefit for you. After all, we want you to keep your healthy smile for life.

With that in mind, here are some of the most common reasons people have teeth taken out:

  • To prepare for orthodontic care

Crowding is a common problem for many people who want straighter smiles. Removing a tooth or multiple teeth can make orthodontic treatment simpler and shorter. Having your teeth in line can improve the appearance of your smile. It also can make it easier to maintain your oral health.

  • To remove a damaged tooth

A lot of things can happen to teeth that leave them worse for wear. Tooth decay can make a tooth painful. Biting into the wrong thing can cause a tooth to crack. An accident or injury could cause a broken tooth. Whenever possible, we will try to save these teeth. Nevertheless, some teeth are just too weak to support a crown or survive a root canal. In these cases, we would recommend removing and replacing your tooth with a dental implant-supported crown.

  • To prepare for teeth replacements

If you are already missing several teeth, it may be in your best interest to take out the few teeth you have left. This can set the stage for a better teeth replacement option, such as implant-supported dentures. Again, this won’t be the right solution for every patient, but if it could help you, we’ll let you know.

Keeping You Comfortable

We realize any kind of oral surgery can cause someone to have dental anxiety. Even patients who are generally comfortable with oral care can feel apprehensive about this procedure.

You should know that we want to make this process as easy and pain-free as it can be. That starts with our many comfort amenities to help put your mind at ease.

We also go a step further with sedation dentistry. For many patients, oral sedation (taking a dose of medication) is more than enough to keep them from feeling anything during their tooth extraction. If you prefer something stronger, we are happy to say that we are among the few dental practices that provide IV sedation at our office.

Get The Right Treatment For You

Our goal for every patient is to keep you happy and healthy. Whether you are getting a tooth extraction or a dental cleaning, your comfort will always be one of our top priorities.
