When teeth should be extracted by a dentist
There is a large range of situations in which a tooth extraction carried out by a qualified dentist may be necessary. Some of these include:
Often wisdom teeth need to be removed to prevent damage to the gums or other teeth, if these teeth aren’t removed that can cause immense pain, tooth decay, discomfort or even infection. Wyatt Ryan’s Dental Surgeons can extract your wisdom teeth, relieving your pain and assisting in your quick recovery.
Whether you have cracked a tooth and have tooth fracture, a dentist will need to examine the tooth and make a decision on whether or not tooth extraction is the best option for you, often it’s the case that tooth extraction is the best option if extensive damage has occurred.
Gum disease or infection
Gum disease or bad infections can sometimes damage the supporting structures around the tooth, if other treatments and medications are unable to save the tooth then it will need to be extracted. It’s critical if you are experiencing pain in your gums or teeth to see your dentist as soon as possible, giving you the best chance of avoiding a full tooth extraction.
