If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, Dr. Nick Mobilia, DDS will try to fix it with a filling, crown, or other dental treatment. However, when there is too much damage for the tooth to be repaired, the tooth may need to be surgically extracted from its socket in the bone. By taking an x-ray and examining your tooth, Dr. Mobilia can usually determine whether or not the extraction will be simple or surgical.
You’re probably most familiar with wisdom teeth extractions, but other reasons for tooth extraction include:
- When some people have extra teeth that block other teeth from coming in.
- Sometimes baby teeth don’t fall out in time to allow permanent teeth to come in.
- People getting braces may need teeth extracted to create room for teeth that are being moved into place.
- Some teeth may need to be extracted if they have the potential of becoming infected.
If you suspect that you need a tooth extracted for one of these reasons, please give us a call.
