When you Might Need Dental Extractions

  • Supernumerary Teeth: Supernumerary are extra teeth that form outside the normal 32 teeth. These teeth can often lead to crowding in the mouth, and need to be extracted so they don’t cause alignment issues.
  • Stubborn Baby Teeth: Many have stubborn baby teeth that stick around into adolescence. These baby teeth prevent the adult teeth from emerging properly, and thus often need to be removed.
  • Wisdom Teeth: The wisdom teeth are the most commonly extracted teeth. As the wisdom teeth emerge later in adolescence, they can easily become impacted, or create misalignment in the rest of the teeth. As such, most people end up getting their wisdom teeth removed at one point or another. They are extremely susceptible to decay and periodontal disease. This is due to the fact that they are the last teeth in the mouth making then almost impossible to clean even for the most skilled Dental professionals let alone when you are trying to brush them yourself.
  • Tooth Decay: Severe tooth decay ca become not restorable or savable over time (meaning a root canal and crown cannot save the tooth due to loss of tooth structure) and thus often requires full tooth extraction.
  • Infected Pulp: Similarly, infected pulp can often necessitate tooth extraction. While root canal therapy is often an effective means of clearing infection from the pulp, tooth extraction serves as a last resort.
  • Gum Disease: For those with gum disease, tooth decay, and tooth loss is quite common. In many cases, your dentist might choose to extract teeth before they’re fully affected by gum disease.
