Extractions
 
Southpointe Dentristry in Canonsburg PA

 

The most common reason for extraction is tooth damage due to breakage or decay. There are additional reasons for tooth extraction:

  • Severe tooth decay or infections (acute or chronic alveolar abscess). Despite the reduction in worldwide prevalence of dental caries still it is the most common reason for extraction of (non-third molar) teeth with up to two thirds of extractions.
  • Extra teeth which are blocking other teeth from coming in.
  • Severe gum disease which may affect the supporting tissues and bone structures of teeth.
  • In preparation for orthodontic treatment braces
  • Teeth in the fracture line
  • Teeth which cannot be restored endodontically
  • Fractured teeth
  • Supernumerary, supplementary or malformed teeth
  • Prosthetics; teeth detrimental to the fit or appearance of dentures
  • Insufficient space for wisdom teeth (impacted third molars).
  • Cosmetic; teeth of poor appearance, unsuitable for restoration.
  • Reduced cost compared to other treatments
