There are several reasons why tooth extractions could be the recommended treatment option.
Before there were new innovations in dental care, tooth extractions were more common than they are now. At Georgian Shores Dental Centre, we offer a variety of dental services designed to help you keep your permanent teeth whenever possible, but in some situations, a tooth does need to be removed. One of the most common reasons for tooth extractions is to remove wisdom teeth that your mouth doesn’t have room for or could pose a problem in the future. Wisdom tooth extractions most often occur during the adolescent years.
Another reason for tooth extractions is severe tooth damage either by an injury or extensive decay that cannot be repaired. It can also happen if there is advanced gum disease. There are also less common situations, such as someone having an extra tooth or one that is so far out of position that orthodontic treatments would not be successful. There can also be medical reasons for tooth extractions to minimize infections that could be dangerous.
You can rest assured that we look upon tooth extractions as the last resort here at our Midland, Ontario dental centre. In addition, we will always present you with all possible options and explain why we might recommend one over another based on our experience. We make certain that any questions or concerns you might have are addressed completely while developing your treatment plan.
