Why might I need a tooth removed?
Many situations can arise in which a patient might benefit from removing a permanent tooth in their smile. Below are just a few of the cases seen at Precision Dental Clinic:
- Severe tooth decay that cannot be repaired by root canal therapy
- Failed root canal therapy
- Severe periodontal disease
- Impaction of a tooth, typically occurring with wisdom teeth (third molars)
- Overcrowding in the mouth
- Injury or trauma to the mouth
- Preparation for dentures or orthodontia
How is a tooth removed?
There are two methods of removal for teeth: simple extraction and surgical extraction.
- Simple. A simple extraction is done when the tooth is accessible above the gum line. The dentist will use a unique instrument that removes the tooth from the socket. After the patient has been anesthetized, this can take just minutes to complete.
- Surgical. If the tooth is underneath the gum line, such as impacted teeth, the tooth may need to be removed with a surgical extraction. A surgical extraction is more invasive and requires the dentist to open a small area of the gum tissue to reach the tooth in the jawbone. X-rays are taken to plan this procedure and ensure it is done quickly and easily. Surgical extraction often requires longer recovery time and stitches but effectively removes impacted teeth or teeth that have not erupted through the gums yet.
