Tooth Extraction - Bellevue Hill Dental

Tooth Extraction

Fortunately these days, there are many treatments available to save teeth that were once lost to extraction. However, there are times where tooth extraction is the best option. A tooth may need to be extracted if:

 

  • It is too badly damaged to repair, usually by tooth decay or trauma
  • If it has advanced periodontal disease and has become painful, infected and can no longer be supported by the jaw bone
  • If the tooth is not functioning and is unstable, ie. if there is no opposing tooth to chew on
  • If it is part of an orthodontic treatment plan to make space to straighten teeth
  • If there is a crack in the tooth that cannot be repaired
