Why does my tooth need to be extracted?
Some common reasons that cause a tooth to require extraction are
Dental Crowding. Some teeth that appear healthy still require removal because your mouth is too small for all the teeth to fit in your jaw. This lack of space can lead to crooked teeth, gum disease, and jaw pain.
Infection or Decay. If your tooth is decaying or infected and is left untreated, an extraction may be necessary.
Loose Teeth From Gum Disease. If you suffer from periodontal or gum disease, your teeth may become loose or infected. Extraction may be necessary to restore your oral health.
Trauma. Your teeth can easily be fractured or broken due to an accident or trauma. If a tooth is damaged beyond repair, an extraction may be required.
How do I know if I need a tooth removed?
To determine if you need a tooth extraction, you will need to schedule a consultation appointment at Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center, where one of our oral surgeons will perform a thorough oral examination and complete an X-ray evaluation.
Can I have an implant placed at the same time as my extraction?
Yes, dental implants can often be placed at the same time that the tooth is removed.
If you think you need a tooth extracted, we encourage you to contact us at Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center in either Flint, MI, or Saginaw, MI, to schedule an appointment.
