For the sake of your oral health, dental extractions are sometimes necessary. Although our dentists always evaluate all possible treatment options to save your teeth, some oral diseases may threaten your teeth’s health and require a dental extraction.
Groupe dentaire API’s dentists use the best tools on the market and do everything to ensure your well-being during the surgical procedure as well as after it is done.
It is important to understand that the permanent extraction of a tooth must imperatively be followed by a restoration procedure to replace the missing tooth. Our teeth form indeed an ensemble that hold each other in place. When a tooth is missing, it must be replaced or else the alignment of your teeth will be disrupted. This must be avoided!
At Groupe dentaire API, we offer many treatment options to replace teeth. Dental implants, bridges, crowns, and dentures are all options to replace teeth and regain their use.
Many reasons may constrain your dentist to extract one of your teeth. In any case, dentists extract teeth when there are no other options.
Tooth decay: An untreated cavity develops and destroys the tooth’s natural structures. A tooth that has a lot of decay that can neither be treated with filling, nor with a root canal treatment must be extracted.
Gum diseases: gum diseases left untreated will spread to other tissues that support teeth. The infection may even damage bone tissue in which the roots of teeth are attached. If the tooth is not sufficiently supported, it may have to be extracted and then replaced.
Wisdom teeth: Because they seldom have enough space to grow adequately without damaging nearby teeth, we often recommend that you have your wisdom teeth removed. Please refer to the section about wisdom teeth.
In this section, you will find all the tooth extraction-related advice sheets that our team prepared.
Nonetheless, do not forget that only a dentist, a specialist in your oral health, is able to make an accurate diagnosis, so book an appointment!
