Common Reasons for Tooth Extraction

There are several reasons why tooth extraction may be necessary for you. The most common reasons for tooth extraction include the following.

•  Tooth Decay
Tooth decay is the most common reason for tooth extraction. It takes several years for tooth decay to progress, so it's uncommon among individuals who schedule regular dental checkups. However, individuals who avoid dental checkups and cleaning for years are more prone to tooth decay.

If tooth decay worsens to a point that the tooth cannot be saved, dental experts recommend tooth extraction followed by tooth restoration treatment.

•  Gum Disease
Gum disease is as detrimental to oral health as tooth decay. When left untreated, gum disease can cause the degeneration of the ligaments, tissue, and bone in the oral cavity, which eventually causes the tooth to fall out on its own. However, in some instances, the tooth doesn't fall on its own. In such cases, a dentist may recommend extraction along with a treatment plan for gum disease and dental implants.

•  Overcrowded Teeth
Tooth extraction is a solution for individuals who have severely overcrowded teeth. Dental experts recommend the removal of permanent teeth to create more space in the oral cavity, which can facilitate the alignment of the remaining teeth and ensure a healthy oral cavity.

•  Impacted Teeth
An impacted tooth is a tooth that remains completely or partially inside the gum tissue or bone. There are several causes of having an impacted tooth, including an overcrowded oral cavity or the development of the tooth (typically molars and wisdom teeth) with twisted or tilted angles.

Impacted teeth can cause pressure on the remaining teeth in the oral cavity. Moreover, they can cause other dental problems, such as gum diseases. Hence, tooth extraction is the best solution for impacted teeth.

•  Tooth Fractures
Unchecked cavities can weaken the tooth, which leads to tooth fractures. If a fractured tooth cannot be restored with a dental crown, tooth extraction followed by tooth implant is a recommended procedure.

Depending on the cause that requires tooth extraction, dentists opt for either a simple or surgical extraction.

Simple Extraction

Simple tooth extraction involves the administration of a local anesthetic to numb the area of your oral cavity.

Your dentist will use luxators (instruments used in dental extraction) to loosen the tooth from its socket and remove it using forceps. Patients typically experience light pressure during the procedure.

Surgical Extraction

If you have a pre-existing condition or a severely impacted tooth, then a combination of local and general anesthesia is used.

It helps numb the area while putting the patient into a deep sleep for a pain-free surgical procedure. A small incision is made into the gums to loosen the tooth or to remove the surrounding bone for safe tooth extraction.
