Why might you need a Tooth Extraction?

Although a tooth extraction is always a last resort, there are many reasons why it may be necessary. The most common reasons for requiring a complete removal of a tooth include:

  • A crowded mouth, which may affect other teeth
  • If gum disease is present, resulting in compromised tooth support
  • Risk of infection
  • Broken teeth that cannot be repaired
  • Impacted teeth (poorly positioned teeth)
  • In preparation for orthodontic treatment
  • Infection or severe tooth decay rendering a tooth unrestorable and no longer functional

What can I expect after I have my tooth removed?

Every tooth extraction case is different, and your SmileCode Dental. The dentist will go over with you on what you may expect. Generally, it is quite common to experience some minor discomfort right when the freezing wears off. Acetaminophen or ibuprofen is recommended at that time. Any swelling or bleeding is usually minimal, although your dentist will go over what to expect in your specific case.

Do I need to replace a tooth once it is removed?

The need for a tooth replacement depends on the situation. Some teeth have an important role in aesthetics and function. A molar tooth for example, is extremely important to chewing, so not replacing it could result in an unbalanced bite or in the tooth drifting. Other teeth however (like wisdom teeth), are seldom replaced. Your dentist will discuss whether your tooth should be replaced preceding your tooth removal.
