Permanent Pain Relief with Tooth Extractions

What is Tooth Extraction?

Tooth extraction involves the removal of a damaged or decayed tooth when no other treatment can be done to save it. While the goal is always to preserve the tooth with every means necessary to avoid tooth loss, there are instances when tooth removal is the only viable solution.

When the affected tooth is removed, any infection that may have been present is prevented from spreading to the surrounding tissues, helping maintain good dental and gum health.

What conditions require tooth extractions?

  • Impacted wisdom tooth – When the wisdom tooth does not grow out from under the gum line in a normal way, it becomes impacted. In this position, it becomes more prone to decay since it cannot be reached with normal tooth brushing. If it gets infected, it will need to be removed before the infection spreads to surrounding neighbouring teeth and gums.
  • After multiple root canal treatments – A tooth that has gone through multiple root canal treatments and still does show significant improvement may need to be extracted to maintain good dental health.
  • Loose tooth due to periodontal disease – Periodontal disease can result in the gums receding and losing their supportive structure around the teeth. In this case, the tooth will eventually loosen as well and may need to be extracted.
  • Extensively decayed tooth – When a tooth becomes so decayed that no other treatment can save it, a tooth extraction procedure is necessary to provide permanent pain relief and to stop the damage from spreading to other teeth.
  • Severely broken tooth – A tooth that has been severely damaged or broken and cannot be saved by other procedures will need to be addressed with tooth extraction for overall good dental health.
  • Orthodontic treatment preparation – Tooth extraction may be necessary when there is a problem with teeth overcrowding. It can also be done to remove a tooth or several teeth as part of the preparation for orthodontic treatment.
