Nobody likes to lose a tooth and when a tooth has to be extracted, it may cause concern for the individual who is having the problem. Residents in the Dublin, CA., area are fortunate that they have access to excellent dental professionals like Dr. Huang to look after their dentistry needs. There can be a lot of reasons why a tooth cannot be saved and has to be removed.
Commons reasons for tooth extractions
- Damage or trauma – Unfortunately, one or more teeth can become damaged from an injury which is quite common in sports activities. With the modern technology that is available today, quite often a damaged tooth can be saved, but when this is not possible, removal may be necessary.
- Decay – It is important to maintain good oral hygiene to protect the teeth but even when this is carried out, on occasion, a tooth may still decay. It could have been damaged previously without realizing, which later led to the decay. In some cases, illness or medications can weaken the teeth leaving them open for decay.
- To create space – Another common reason to have a tooth removed is to allow space for the other teeth that may be too crowded. In order to get proper alignment of the teeth, it may be necessary to remove at least one tooth.
- Infection – Sometimes a tooth may look healthy on the outside but this may not be the case on the inner parts of the tooth and infection could be present. Often this creates a very painful situation just as tooth decay can. It is a problem that needs to be corrected quickly so the infection does not spread to the other teeth or to other parts of the body via the bloodstream. Sometimes the tooth can be saved with a root canal but it takes a dental specialist like Dr. James Huang to determine this.
- Wisdom tooth extraction – The wisdom teeth can create several problems and this creates the need for their removal. Sometimes they might not be able to protrude through the gums and can get stuck or impacted. Sometimes this can be painful but not always. If this is the case, they should be extracted. Quite often, dental professionals will suggest having the wisdom teeth extracted as a preventative measure, as they are known to create problems even after they have come in with no issues. It is not uncommon for the wisdom teeth to take up too much room in the gum area which causes crowding for the other teeth.
- Other medical conditions – Some medical conditions can compromise your teeth either directly or indirectly. It may be necessary to remove a tooth that is weak or damaged to prevent infection which could worsen the existing medical condition
- Gum Disease – Gum disease is referred to as periodontal disease. This is when an infection has set into the tissues that support the teeth and sometimes affect the bones in this area also. If this is happening, one or more teeth might require extraction.
