EXTRACTIONS

While dentists typically make every effort to salvage a patient’s teeth, some cases require a tooth to be extracted.

PROCEDURE INFORMATION

Tooth Extractions

Dentists will rarely extract a tooth that is full of decay. Many procedures are available to save teeth and they prefer to try to salvage a tooth whenever possible. However, sometimes the only solution to a dental problem is extraction. Below is a list of reasons a tooth may require extraction:

Severe Tooth Decay

If a patient has severe decay in a tooth, a dentist may recommend an appointment with an endodontist for a root canal to try to save it. However, if the decay has infected it, sometimes a simple extraction is necessary to keep the infection from spreading.

Remove Impacted Teeth

A tooth becomes impacted if it hasn’t erupted through the gum. Sometimes the tooth can be growing beneath another one, or it may have started to erupt and then stopped. It isn’t unusual for wisdom teeth, or the back molars, to become impacted. Impacted teeth don’t always have symptoms, and it takes an x-ray to find them.

Reduce Overcrowding

Malocclusion, which is overcrowding of the teeth, can cause several problems with your teeth. Overcrowding can make it difficult to keep clean which can result in tooth decay.

To relieve overcrowding, our dentist at Embrace Dental may recommend pulling or extracting teeth. Most of the time, simple extractions take place in our offices, and you don’t need to go to an oral surgeon. However, if you do need a surgical extraction, we will recommend a surgeon near you in Sparks, NV.

Breaks or Cracks in Teeth

Accidents happen, and sometimes your teeth can fall victim to them. If you’ve been in a vehicle accident or get hit in the mouth playing sports, then your dentist may need to extract a severely broken or cracked tooth. Although there are many ways to salvage teeth, sometimes they cannot be saved, and an extraction is necessary.

Our dental team in Sparks, NV, can often save decayed or cracked teeth through the use of fillings, inlays and onlays, root canals, and dental crowns. However, if an extraction is necessary, we can remove teeth as painlessly as possible. Call Embrace Dental for an appointment to have your damaged tooth evaluated.
