While it is usually a last-case scenario, sometimes it is necessary to remove a tooth due to infection or other issues. There are two main types of tooth extraction procedures; surgical and non-surgical. Surgical extractions are frequently performed for the removal of impacted wisdom teeth. We provide dental extractions at our office in Lawrence Massachusetts.

Dental Extractions Q & A

Why would my tooth need to be removed?

Tooth extractions happen for a variety of reasons. Before a tooth is extracted, a dentist will need to examine your mouth and decide whether or not it is the right procedure. In most cases, dentists try to provide other procedures that can save and preserve the tooth if possible. You might need your tooth extracted for one of the following reasons:

  1. Severe Tooth Decay: Dental decay progresses over time. What can start as the demineralization of your enamel can eventually become a cavity and then an infection. When tooth decay starts it can usually be solved with a filling, dental crown, or root canal depending on where the decay has spread. But if the decay is severe, the tooth might need to be fully removed.
  2. Issues With Alignment: If your mouth is not large enough to support your smile of teeth, you might need to have a tooth or a group of teeth removed. One of the most common examples of this is the removal of wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth can become impacted which leads to issues for the surrounding teeth. Removing these teeth can prevent infection and damage to your other molars.
  3. Dental Injuries: A sports injury or other sudden injury can leave a tooth cracked, broken, loose, or otherwise damaged. While the goal of dentists is to find ways to fix or preserve the tooth, that is not always possible. In some cases, the only solution is to remove the tooth or partial tooth that is left.

What are my options for a tooth extraction?

One of the best options for replacing a lost adult tooth is a dental implant. This surgical procedure replaces the full tooth including the tooth root by implanting a post underneath the gumline. Dental bridges can put stress on the healthy teeth that are used to anchor the bridge in place. But dental implants fully replace the form and function of a healthy tooth.
