Dental equipment holding aan extracted tooth

As we age, it is only natural that teeth begin to lose their once vibrant shine, and even become subject to a number of concerns that arise over the years. While nobody would prefer it, tooth loss can be a natural occurrence for some adults. In cases like these, it is imperative to seek implant restorations to restore your grin, however, otherwise you will become subject to a number of even bigger problems down the line. But are their circumstances in which extraction is beneficial? In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX oral Surgeon will take a look at the scenarios in which extraction is warranted and how our office can help.

Why It Needs to Come Out

When it comes to the need for removing a tooth, the need is largely dependent on the situation involved. For example, one of the major causes of loss typically involves harmful oral bacteria that have significantly impacted your oral health. This can be the result of a developing cavity that was never resolved and grew in complexity, oral bacteria that have made their way beneath the gum line and attached to the roots, or more. While one may hold the viewpoint that if a structure is truly damaged beyond repair then it is best to let it fall out on its own, bear in mind that a number of circumstances can arise that will significantly impact your health. Take, for example, a tooth that has been severely damaged. If it is infected, your chances of surrounding teeth becoming infected or diseased as well increases drastically. In other words, you won’t just be losing one structure, but multiple. For reasons such as these, it may be better to consider an extraction.

Future Complications

Our office utilizes advanced technology and an in-house lab to remove your structure same-day, but keep in mind that other complications will arise if that structure isn’t replaced. For instance, the compromised tooth may be gone, but the oral bacteria that caused it in the first place may remain. In fact, your chances of losing other teeth once one has been lost increases greatly if you do not have it replaced. What’s more, you will experience complications in your everyday life, such as difficulties biting, chewing, eating, and enunciating.
