What you need to know about dental extractions
Dental professionals work hard to save your teeth, but sometimes teeth just need to be removed. Only a skilled dental professional like Dr. M.S. Warshanna at Angel Dental Care in Catonsville, Maryland can tell you when a tooth extraction will benefit your health and your smile.
Dr. Warshanna wants you to know the most common reasons for tooth extraction. A tooth extraction may be necessary when you have:
Your tooth may also need to be extracted if you have lost a lot of bone support and soft tissue attachment due to periodontal disease. Once you’ve lost bone and soft tissue support, your tooth becomes mobile. Dr. Warshanna can try periodontal therapy treatment, but some teeth are just too unhealthy to stay in your mouth. The diseased tooth and tissue can compromise the teeth around it.
Another common reason for a tooth extraction is the placement of your third molars, commonly called wisdom teeth. Some people have enough room for their third molars, but most people experience crowding, pressure and sometimes pain with their wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth can erupt sideways, rotated, or may not erupt at all; these teeth are called impacted wisdom teeth. In most cases, wisdom teeth that are not going to erupt normally should be extracted because a cyst can form around them, and destroy bone.
When you and Dr. Warshanna decide to extract an unhealthy or compromised tooth, it is a positive step to get rid of harmful bacteria and disease that can affect your remaining teeth.
No matter what the reason for a tooth extraction is, you can be assured that Dr. Warshanna will provide a comfortable experience before, during and after your appointment. So if you have pain from a tooth, don’t suffer! Call Dr. M.S. Warshanna at Angel Dental Care in Catonsville, Maryland and find out more about whether tooth extraction can benefit you!
