Do You Need an Extraction? Here's How to Tell

At Bright Smiles Family Dentistry, our goal is to help you achieve and maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime, and sometimes in order to protect your oral health, you'll need a tooth extraction in Marble Falls, TX. While this may not be the most desirable news, you may be surprised that the procedure is not as bad as you think. Here are some situations that may require a tooth extraction.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth, or third molars are the last of your teeth to arrive, and this doesn't happen until around the age of 18-25 years old. Wisdom teeth are often extracted because:

  • There's not enough space to accommodate them and they can begin to crowd other teeth
  • They don't come in properly, or they remain impacted, or stuck under the gum line, which can lead to an infection
  • They may be hard to brush and floss, which can lead to issues with gum disease and tooth decay
  • They may come in at odd angles that affect your other teeth

Wisdom teeth removal is quite common and our in-house oral surgeon is well equipped to handle their extraction.

Dental Infection

If your tooth is suffering from an infection that root canal therapy can't restore, your tooth may need to be extracted to remove the infection and protect your oral health. Our doctors will want to discuss the benefits of replacing your tooth with you and our oral surgeon can remove your tooth and place a dental implant if that treatment suits your needs. A dental infection that's left untreated will lead to more pain, infection, and even more tooth loss, so please don't wait for your infection to go away on its own.

Orthodontic Treatment

Patients who suffer from severe crowding of their teeth may require some extractions prior to starting orthodontic treatment. Your orthodontist will discuss with you how removing teeth may allow for more efficient and effective alignment of your teeth.
