When would I need a tooth extraction?
Sometimes, an unhealthy tooth can put the rest of your mouth in jeopardy. In that case, the removal of individual teeth may be necessary to maintain the health of your remaining teeth and mouth. After evaluating all options and doing as much as possible to save a tooth, extraction may be the best option. The most common reasons for extractions are:
- Periodontal disease
- Severe decay
- Badly broken tooth, beyond repair
- Poorly positioned teeth
After determining if extraction is necessary, the friendly team at Mayfair Dentistry will discuss options with you for replacing the extracted tooth. Having a gap in your teeth can cause the teeth and jaw to shift, creating problems with chewing and dental health. Luckily, we also offer a number of dental restoration services to replace missing teeth.
The long-term health of your mouth depends on the health of each tooth. The team at Mayfair Dentistry will take care to make sure your tooth extraction is stress-free and effective as well as oversee your recovery to ensure that your smile is healthy and bright.
