Our dentists at Shiloh Family Dental want to do everything possible to save and restore teeth. However, there are some situations where teeth are not only so damaged that they are beyond repair, but at risk of damaging your long-term oral health as well. In these less common occurrences, we can safely remove a tooth, stop your dental discomfort, and ensure your remaining teeth are safe and healthy. If you have major dental discomfort, don’t wait to give our office a call today!
If a tooth needs to be removed, it’s likely because it was severely decayed. This is often due to poor oral hygiene that allowed plaque and tartar to buildup and erode enamel, exposing the vulnerable tissue located at the center. Keep in mind that this is not the only reasons a tooth may need extraction. Additionally, teeth cracked due to physical injury can be so damaged that no restorations can fix them. In other cases, patients need to have teeth removed before they can receive metal braces.
