Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Avoid A Tooth Extraction!
If one of your teeth needs to come out, it’s best to have it extracted as soon as possible before it leads to more serious complications for your dental health.
Here are a few reasons you shouldn’t put off a tooth extraction:
It’s not a pleasant thought, but we all have bacteria in our mouths.
Some of the bacteria is good, but some of it is quite destructive.
Bad bacteria can infect your gums, and this is when the stability of your teeth can be compromised. The reason is that the infection eats away at your gum tissues, causing them to pull away from your teeth. Your jawbone starts to deteriorate, as well, and this process is the leading cause of tooth loss.
If you’ve suffered the consequences of gum disease, part of the road back to better dental health is to extract any teeth before they fall out on their own. When we’re able to control how you lose a tooth, it gives us more control over when and how we can replace it and increases the chances for us to successfully reverse the deterioration of your gums and jawbone.
Like we said, putting off dental treatment will only cause bigger problems later.
Cavities that are left untreated can become wider and deeper, and that can allow bacteria to break through your tooth enamel and infect the inside.
Once that happens, it’s possible for the cavity to leave too much destruction in its wake to save your tooth.
In some cases, a patient will have one too many teeth, and this can lead to overcrowding in their mouth. A tooth can push surrounding teeth out of position, which not only poses a cosmetic problem for your smile, but it can cause teeth to overlap, giving food particles just another place to hide inside your mouth and bacteria more fuel to thrive.
This would put you at a higher risk for tooth decay and cavities.
