Procedure in Removing a Tooth
Your tooth aches.........its been aching for quite some time. You have neglected going to the dentist to have it looked at. It may be to late to save the tooth. If your tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, and all options to fix it with a filling, crown, or other treatment has failed, the tooth may need to be extracted, or removed, from its socket in the bone.
While damage and decay is one of the most common reasons for having a tooth removed, there are some other reasons your dentist might recommend to have a tooth or numerous teeth removed.
Whether it is a child, or an adult who do not have proper dental care growing up, having extra teeth in your mouth that block out other teeth from coming in, is a common reason a tooth maybe extracted. Sometimes baby teeth dont fall out in time or never fall out. This causes the permanent teeth not to be able to come in. The dentist may choose to remove those baby teeth.
Then there is the issue with crowding. We all want the perfect smile with the perfect teeth. This can be achieved successfully at times, with braces. But in order for braces to do their job, teeth may need to be extracted to create room for the other teeth to be moved into place.
If someone happens to be receiving radiation or cancer drugs, teeth may need to be removed. In the case of radiation to the head or neck, the teeth may need to be removed in order for the radiation to be effective. Cancer drugs, although can kill cancer, can also cause many issues in the human body. One of these issues can arise in the teeth. Immune systems are wrecked when chemotherapy or other drugs are introduced into the body, and infections can arise more quickly. Teeth can get easily infected, even with proper hygiene. If a tooth is to infected, it may need to be extracted. Getting My Teeth Pulled Linwood NJ 08221
One of the final reasons for teeth extraction is having the wisdom teeth removed, also known as third molars. They can be extracted either before or after they enter the oral cavity. If they are present, they usually appear during the late teens or early 20's. They will need to be removed if they are decayed, infected, or if there is simply just not enough room in the mouth.
