Dental Extractions

Towson, MD Dentist

Dental extraction(s) (the removal of a tooth or teeth) may become necessary as a result of progressed gum or “periodontal” disease or because of deep dental decay. Extractions are often requested by the patient when a tooth is infected and causing severe pain.

After extraction, patients may consider tooth replacement options, such as a bridge or dental implant. Spaces in teeth can cause other teeth to shift, which will lead to malocclusion or bite problems.

Pain management techniques has made dental extractions much more comfortable option than it was many years ago. Patients often have their wisdom teeth removed to prevent decay in these teeth and prevent crowding.

If you are considering dental extraction, make sure to discuss your concerns with your doctor.
