Why Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?
There are a variety of specific reasons why a tooth may need to be pulled. Typically, it becomes necessary when a tooth is so badly damaged that it can’t be repaired by some other dental procedure. But there are other reasons as well. For patients with weakened immune systems, developing an infection in a tooth can put their overall health at risk.
In these instances, Dr. Jaros may recommend that the tooth be pulled to avoid putting the patient’s health in jeopardy.
People with an impacted tooth – in other words, a tooth that hasn’t fully erupted through the gum tissue – may need to have the tooth extracted if it’s coming in at the wrong angle. And when people with untreated, advanced gum disease end up with loose teeth, the dentist has no alternative other than to extract the teeth.
