In the past, people often had teeth extracted due to dental problems. These days, teeth are extracted less frequently because retention of teeth is nearly always better than extraction. However, there are times when extraction is the best treatment option.

The aim is to achieve the best outcome over the long term, while giving you the most satisfactory function and appearance possible. Your dentist is in the best position to evaluate your situation.

REASONS FOR EXTRACTION

Teeth may have to be removed for several reasons, as follows.

  • Extensive Damage to Tooth

If a tooth is badly decayed or damaged due to trauma, extraction may be necessary.

  • Periodontal Disease

Due to poor dental hygiene and a build up of plaque and calculus (tartar) on a tooth, the gums may become inflamed and infected (periodontal disease). If not treated promptly, periodontal disease is likely to damage the underlying bone and other tissues around the tooth's root. The infection may cause the tooth to become loose in its socket. Despite treatment, saving the tooth may not be possible.

  • Prevention of Complications

If badly diseased teeth are not extracted promptly, complications such as infection or abscesses in the teeth or roots, or the spread of infection through the blood stream to other parts of the body, may occour. This may affect the general health of the patient.

  • To Improve Appearance

As part of orthodontic treatment or a treatment plan to improve the appearance of teeht, your dentist may recommend re,oving a tooth that interferes with another.

  • Cracks in a Tooth Root

A root may crack or split completely. If repair is not possible, extraction will be necessary.
