Preventative Dental Treatments
Tooth extractions—a procedure in which the entire tooth, including the roots, is pulled out—are generally a last resort, but they are not uncommon and can be recommended for several reasons. Teeth may need to be extracted if they are damaged or diseased beyond repair. In children, baby teeth may be slow to fall out and must be extracted to create enough room for the permanent teeth trying to push through.
Wisdom teeth are another instance that may require extraction. These “third molars” usually erupt during adolescence or young adulthood and can, in many cases, cause a variety of oral health issues like TMJ (temporomandibular) disorder, infections, facial pain or headaches, and misalignment of the teeth and jaws. Wisdom teeth are often extracted as a preventative measure.
