At Mountainside Family Dental, our team offers gentle treatment to see you through if you need a tooth extraction. You may have infected wisdom teeth that you’ll not even miss!
Your Mountainside dentist can talk to you about tooth replacement in other cases, such as extraction due to tooth decay or damage.
Reasons You May Need an Extraction
One of the most common reasons for needing an extraction is deep decay or trauma to the tooth. For example, it is almost impossible to save with a dental crown if it breaks below the gumline. In this case, your dentist recommends having the tooth pulled.
Impacted or painful wisdom teeth are also a popular reason for extractions. But don’t worry! Wisdom teeth that come in after all of your adult teeth will not be missed. They serve no purpose.
Your dentist in Mountainside, NJ may also recommend tooth extractions before Invisalign treatment or before complete dentures. This type of extraction does not require tooth replacement. With Invisalign, your treatment closes the new smile gap across the weeks and months.
Tooth Replacement Following Extraction
In the event of extraction due to decay or trauma, we strongly recommend tooth replacement to keep your oral health in check. When teeth are missing, you risk tooth migration, which leads to wear and tear. It can even cost you some teeth due to eventual fractures.
Additionally, a restored bite can broaden your dietary choices, giving you a healthier selection of foods to choose from, including crunchy veggies.
- Dental implants
- Partial dentures
- Dental bridges
- Implant-supported prosthetics
