We don’t advocate for tooth extraction at our dental practice but sometimes it is the only option. Our dentists ensure that they have thoroughly explored all other options before recommending and performing a tooth extraction. Even in this case, it is not the end of the world as there are reasons why a tooth extraction might be the right option for your case.
A tooth extraction may be a solid option where surrounding teeth are at risk of infection. A tooth infection can quickly spread and compromise your entire set of teeth. Once all other restorative and treatment options have been explored to no avail, an extraction will save the rest of your teeth from a similar fate.
A tooth extraction is also a quick fix for discomfort and pain. A tooth may not necessarily pose a threat to others but it can be a great source of discomfort or even pain while talking or eating. An extraction immediately resolves this problem and allows you to go through your day pain free.
Finally, although not the first option, a tooth extraction is still an option. It can save you a lot of time and money on procedures such as root canal treatment when it is clear that such a course of action cannot resolve the problem. In any case, many times the extracted tooth can be replaced with a prosthetic that looks and feels natural such that even you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.
