Benefits Of Dental Extractions

benefitsgreensignWhen you first learn that you need a dental extraction to restore the health of your smile, you may initially have a difficult time seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. We understand that the idea of losing your natural tooth can feel overwhelming. However, we encourage you to learn more about the benefits of extractions. Why? Well, saving your oral health by agreeing to the removal of your tooth is the essential step in protecting yourself from severe side effects. Trust us, learning about the advantages will completely change your perspective.

Benefit #1: Clear Up Discomfort

If you’re dealing with serious discomfort, something severe is likely going on with your tooth. For instance, you may have broken your tooth severely, which has left us with no restorative treatment to save it. Or, your tooth may have a serious infection or abscess that we cannot treat with a root canal. By removing the tooth with a dental extraction, the pain goes away with it, so you can quickly regain your comfort.

Benefit #2: Protect Your Surrounding Smile

A tooth can become a threat to surrounding teeth. A wonderful benefit of dental extractions is that removing a single tooth often offers exceptional protection to your surrounding smile. For instance, removing an angled wisdom tooth may prevent misalignment that will occur as the tooth grows in. Or, removing a severely infected tooth will prevent the spread of infection to surrounding tissue or even into your bloodstream.

Benefit #3: Make Room For Orthodontics

If you’re suffering from overcrowding, braces will help – but only if there’s room in your mouth to align your teeth. Dental extractions allow us to remove permanent teeth, so you can have the space required to achieve a beautiful smile.
