When It’s Time for Tooth Extraction

When a tooth cannot be saved through restorative dental treatment, removing it could be the most beneficial option. Tooth extraction is typically reserved for teeth that pose a threat to the rest of your oral health, or that may complicate other necessary treatment. Such cases may include:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth (meaning they cannot erupt fully from the gum line)
  • Teeth that have inadequate support due to severe gum disease
  • A tooth with a cracked or broken tooth root
  • A tooth that is too severely infected for root canal treatment to save
  • A tooth that is too damaged to restore with a dental crown
  • An extremely misaligned tooth that could interrupt orthodontic treatment
  • And more

What Your Smile Needs Next

Even when a tooth needs to be extracted, its loss can still affect your bite performance, as well as your smile’s appearance. Before performing a tooth extraction, Dr. Khan will help you decide on an option for replacing it.
