Do you have a loose tooth? Are you considering getting braces? If so, you might require a tooth extraction. A tooth extraction is when your dentist extracts a tooth from its socket in the bone. Whether you need a simple or surgical tooth extraction in North Hollywood, California, our team is here to help.
A tooth is generally extracted as a last resort, after considering if a filling, crown, etc. can repair the damaged tooth. A tooth extraction might be necessary if a tooth that is too loose, or space needs to be created in order to allow you to wear braces, for example. Additionally, a tooth might require extraction if:
— You have extra teeth which are blocking other teeth from coming in.
— If a baby tooth doesn’t fall out when it is supposed to so that the permanent tooth is able to come in.
— If you are going to be getting braces, and need room for the new position of the teeth.
— If you are undergoing radiation to the head and neck area.
— If teeth have become infected from using cancer drugs, and your immune system is compromised.
— If you have had an organ transplant and teeth can become infected.
— Your wisdom teeth may need extraction before or after they come in. If they have decay, are causing you pain, or have an infection or a cyst, they may require removal.
Having a tooth extracted can prevent further damage to a tooth as well as prevent an infection.
