Molar Tooth ExtractionHow your dentist in Kinnelon, New Jersey, can save your smile

It may seem strange, but sometimes removing a tooth is the right choice. Common causes include if a tooth is severely decayed and can’t be repaired with a filling, or if there is infection around the tooth that can spread to healthy teeth and tissue, dramatically affecting the overall health of your smile. You may also be in a lot of pain!

There are common signs and symptoms indicating you may need to have a tooth extracted. Read below to learn more, and contactDr. Peter Brusco in Kinnelon, New Jersey, if you feel that you could use treatment.

 

More about Tooth Extraction

Many teeth can be repaired with a simple dental filling, with or without root canal treatment. However, there are teeth that remain painful even after treatment. If you have periodontal disease, that can also lead to the need for tooth extraction.

You may to have a tooth extracted if you have:

  • Severe pain after a dental filling has been placed
  • Severe pain after root canal treatment
  • Lost bone support around a tooth, making the tooth mobile

You may need a tooth extraction for reasons other than pain and disease, for example, teeth are often removed before orthodontic treatment. If there is not enough room, or if it will make moving other teeth into correct position faster and easier, your orthodontist may suggest removing specific teeth.

The most common healthy teeth to be removed, however, are wisdom teeth. This is your third set of permanent molars, and most people don’t have room in their jaws for them. As a result, wisdom teeth are often removed between the ages of 18 and 25. If wisdom teeth are left in, there is a chance they will form cysts which can cause bone destruction and other issues.
