Sometimes We Can’t Save a Tooth
We’ll assess your dental damage and do all we can to save a tooth. But here are some common reasons tooth extraction is needed:
- Infection. If tooth decay gets into the center of your tooth, nerves and blood vessels can become infected. It may be possible to remove the infection through a root canal procedure. If not, extracting the tooth may be necessary.
- Loose tooth. A blow to your mouth can loosen a tooth enough that it may need to be removed. Periodontitis, an advanced stage of gum disease in which gums recede from the teeth, is another common cause of loose teeth.
