When you have a tooth that has been broken or damaged by decay, it can sometimes be fixed with a filling, root canal, or a crown. Occasionally, there is too much damage for one of these procedures, and you must have your tooth removed.
Symptoms of a Damaged Tooth
Watching for the warning signs of a damaged tooth is crucial. If left unattended, symptoms may worsen.
- Tooth decay or damage enters the center of tooth containing nerves and blood vessels and become incurable through Root Canal Therapy or antibiotics
- Increased risk for infection because your immune system has been compromised, usually caused by chemotherapy or organ transplants
- Baby teeth not falling out in time for adult teeth to grow in
- Extra teeth preventing your normal teeth from growing properly
- Preparation of the mouth for orthodontia
- An infection or the tissues & bone surrounding the teeth, also known as periodontal disease, may loosen adult teeth
Tooth Extraction Procedure
Prior to scheduling your procedure, your doctor will perform a complete oral exam and take an X-ray of the area in which the tooth must be removed. Your doctor will form a plan for tooth removal taking into consideration your age, the presence of gum disease, and your tooth’s relationship with other areas of your mouth, such as your sinuses, nerves, and other teeth. Most tooth extractions can be completed during a single surgical visit.
