Reasons for Tooth Extraction

Reasons for Tooth Extraction

At Cros Dental we are dedicated to protecting our patients and their smiles, however, in certain situations, the best treatment option may be a tooth extraction. Prior to providing a tooth extraction in Rancho Mirage, your dentist will provide diagnostic testing to determine if it is the best option for your smile. At Cros Dental there are a few common reasons we extract teeth, which include:

Tooth Damage

Have you experienced extensive tooth damage due to decay or even an injury? When a tooth is severely decayed, damaged or even infected it can actually become a serious problem, infecting the tooth root and eventually potentially even causing sepsis (a potentially fatal blood infection). In these situations, a tooth extraction may be the smartest choice for your overall oral health.

Wisdom Teeth

At Cros Dental, wisdom teeth are the most common reason we extract teeth in Rancho Mirage. Due to dietary changes throughout history, our jaws are no longer the size required to fit all of our teeth, often resulting in impacted or problematic wisdom teeth. During your consultation at Cros Dental, we will provide diagnostic testing to determine if your wisdom teeth are going to be problematic and let you know whether or not we recommend removing them.

Orthodontics

Although orthodontic treatment involves using braces or other oral appliances to shift and perfect smiles, situations do arise where teeth do not properly fit in the mouth and may need to be removed for the most successful orthodontic outcome.

Baby Teeth

Did you know that baby teeth are an essential part of having a healthy permanent smile? When baby teeth fail to fall out in a timely fashion, your dentist at Cros Dental may recommend an extraction for the best outcome later in life.
