When Is It Necessary To Pull Out Teeth?
There are a lot of reasons for tooth extraction, the most common being damage from trauma or decay. Here is a more extensive list of reasons:
A crowded mouth
If a tooth is trying to break through the gum line, but is unable to due to an over crowded mouth, you dentist is likely to pull out the tooth. Over crowding can also affect any devices put in my your orthodontist, such as braces. Tooth extraction may be required in order to better straighten and restore your healthy smile.
Damage extending to the pulp and nerve of your tooth can cause infection. This can usually be restored using root canal therapy, where the dentist will remove the nerve and pulp, clean your tooth and seal it, thereby saving your natural tooth. When the infection is too severe, however, extraction may be the only option to prevent the spread of infection.
Risk of infection
If you’ve recently received a transplant or are currently undergoing chemotherapy, the risk of infection can compromise your immune system, and pulling teeth may become necessary to protect your overall health.
