SKILLFUL TOOTH EXTRACTION IN MORGANTOWN, WV
WHY TOOTH PULLING MAY BE NECESSARY
Learning that you need to have a tooth pulled is generally the last thing you want to hear. Sometimes, however, tooth extraction is necessary for both dental health and overall, systemic health. Dr. Music will help you decide if and when tooth extraction is necessary and take every measure possible to reduce your discomfort to a very minimum. There are a handful of reasons that tooth extraction may be necessary:
SOME REASONS YOU MAY REQUIRE EXTRACTION
Spacing: Sometimes there is simply not enough room in your mouth for your teeth. In this case, it may be best for your overall dental health to remove the tooth that is crowding your smile in order to keep your teeth properly aligned.
Infection: A tooth that is badly infected may not be treatable by other means and can pose a serious risk of systemic infection. In this case, extraction could even save your life. This is doubly true for patients with a compromised immune system from chemotherapies, AIDS, etc.
Disease: Periodontal disease, which can cause a loosening of your teeth and inflammation of your gums, may require extraction of a tooth.
Damage: Severe rotting or trauma may not be fixable by other means. If a tooth is damaged beyond repair, extraction is the only option to prevent pain and possible infection.
Hearing that you need to have a tooth pulled can be intimidating and even scary, but it can often be a life-saving procedure. The health of our teeth can reflect the health of our bodies and vice-versa. Frequent dental check-up, proper maintenance, and good tooth hygiene are the best ways to prevent serious damage and infection that could result in the need for tooth extraction.
