Whatever your reason for considering a dental extraction, our team will exhaust every possible method of saving your natural tooth before resorting to removal. If extraction is the only way to preserve your oral health, Dr. Huang will extract your tooth efficiently and safely from the comfort of our surgical office in Henderson, NV. In most cases, leaving a tooth or teeth missing after an extraction causes dental shifting and other oral health problems, which is why we will discuss tooth replacement options with you before removing your tooth.
Common Causes for Dental Extractions
If not caught early, tooth decay can spread throughout the rest of the mouth. When the infection gets too deep into the roots, nerves, and blood vessels of a tooth, extraction is the only way to prevent the spreading of the oral disease. Below are three of the most common causes for dental extraction and why it is important to address these conditions quickly:
- Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, causes advanced tooth decay. Severe cases of gum disease affect the bone beneath the gums and cause tooth loosening. When the tooth becomes too loose to be saved, an extraction becomes necessary.
- When baby teeth do not fall out in time for the adult teeth to grow in, complications like tooth impaction can arise. The tooth or teeth obstructing the growth path must be removed to avoid such problems.
- Dental crowding, caused by extra teeth growing in or a smaller-than-average jaw, is a common dental problem among young children and teens. Removing one or more teeth will usually treat the issue.
