A patient can require a tooth extraction procedure for a variety of reasons. Here at MacArthur Dental Arts our dentists extract teeth due to extreme decay, damage, facial trauma, or other oral health complications, such as impacted wisdom teeth.
The removal of teeth can lead to other oral procedures including placement of dental implants or a full-arch hybrid denture. Tooth extraction procedures are a last resort, as our dentists work hard to keep as many of your original teeth in place as possible. When a tooth extraction is necessary, we make it our priority to restore your oral health as well as your confidence in smiling.
Dental crowding may develop when teeth begin to grow or erupt into a jaw space that is too small. These teeth can become impacted if they are unable to reach full development when emerging from the gums. In other cases, extra teeth grow into the mouth and require an extraction so that the other teeth can grow in properly.
Periodontal disease is gum disease that can affect the tissues located underneath and around your teeth. This type of infection can lead to the teeth becoming loose
Tooth decay often develops in patients who are not able to maintain proper oral hygiene habits or regular checkups with their dentist. In some cases, illnesses can cause severe dental decay. When caught late, tooth decay can lead to an infection that can spread to other parts of the mouth, leading to additional oral complications.
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties. If these teeth are healthy and properly aligned, they can be a valuable asset to the mouth. But more often than not, they are misaligned and require removal.
