Dental Teeth Extractions
Chew better, look better - with less pain.
At Zealous Dental in Dayton, Ohio, we understand that dental extractions can be a daunting prospect for many patients. However, there are certain situations where extractions may be necessary to preserve your oral health and prevent further complications. Most patients, having gone through a tooth extraction procedure, express relief from continuous pain, chewing on one side to avoid the bad tooth and other complications.
Severe Tooth Decay
One common reason for dental extractions is severe tooth decay or damage that cannot be repaired with a filling, crown, or other restorative treatment. In some cases, a tooth may become so decayed or damaged that it cannot be saved, and extraction may be the only option.
Overcrowding of Teeth
When there is not enough space in the mouth for all of the teeth to grow in properly, extractions may be necessary to create enough space and prevent complications such as misalignment or discomfort.
Extractions may also be necessary for impacted teeth, which are teeth that have not fully erupted or are blocked from growing in properly by other teeth. Impacted teeth can cause pain, infection, and other complications, and extraction may be necessary to prevent further issues.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth extractions are another common reason for dental extractions. Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge in the late teens or early twenties and can cause discomfort or even damage to surrounding teeth if they do not emerge properly. In many cases, wisdom teeth may need to be extracted to prevent further complications and preserve oral health.
