When Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?

In many cases,  you can repair teeth that are broken or damaged by decay with a filling, crown, or other dental treatment. Sometimes, though, the damage is too severe to repair, so your dentist will recommend extraction.

Here are some other reasons tooth extraction might be necessary

  • Decay or infection has reached deep into the tooth

  • Trauma or injury

  • There isn’t enough room for all the teeth in your mouth

How can I replace the missing tooth?

If your tooth needs to be extracted, you may need to think about a way to replace the missing tooth. Some options include:

  • Dental implants 

  • Bridges

  • Dentures

Ask your dentist which is the best option for you!
