EXTRACTIONS

Extractions may be required for a whole variety of reasons. Perhaps a tooth has become severely decayed or it may have an advanced periodontal disease. Other teeth may be broken beyond repair or maybe they’re poorly positioned in the mouth and need to be removed before orthodontic treatment can be conducted.

However, when you remove a tooth, it can impact your chewing ability and/or cause problems with your jaw joint, as well as result in the shifting of other teeth that can have a big impact on your overall dental health. So to avoid these issues, your dentist will discuss alternative solutions, as well as the option to replace the extracted tooth.
