At Southern Cross Dental, our doctors cannot stress enough the importance of taking care of your oral health. If you don’t brush and floss your teeth on a regular basis, you risk developing gum disease that can eventually lead to tooth decay. When teeth have significant decay, sometimes they cannot be treated by a root canal and will need to be extracted. In some cases, a broken tooth may also need to be extracted. Other reasons for tooth extractions include:
· Some people have extra teeth that block other teeth from coming in.
· Sometimes baby teeth don’t fall out in time to allow permanent teeth to come in.
· People getting braces may need teeth extracted to create room for teeth that are being moved into place.
· Some teeth may need to be extracted if they have the potential of becoming infected.
If any of this issues sound all too familiar or if you have a tooth that is causing you pain, please give us a call to discuss your treatment options.
