Most of the time, we want you to keep as many of your teeth as you can. Even so, you may find yourself facing a situation in which tooth removal is recommended for your long-term oral health.
When you are dealing with these circumstances, our team in Laredo, TX may recommend a tooth removal.
1. Severe Decay or Injury
Many times you can save a tooth with a filling, crown, or root canal. When the tooth has suffered too much damage, however, taking out the tooth is often your best option.
2. Beginning Orthodontic Care
Crowding is a common problem that affects smiles. It can prevent permanent teeth from erupting correctly and make orthodontic treatment more complex. By removing one tooth or a few teeth, you or someone you love may have an easier time with orthodontic care.
3. Getting New Teeth
On the other end of the smile spectrum are people who have already lost most of their teeth. In these situations, removing the last tooth or teeth can make it easier to restore your smile with implant-supported dentures.
