There are a few reasons why we may recommend tooth extractions.Unfortunately it is not always possible to extend the life of teeth that are damaged beyond repair from either cavity problems, cracks or advanced periodontal disease. If we need to perform a tooth extraction, we will strive to make you as comfortable as possible. We can also provide you with options for replacing your missing teeth. As well, baby teeth usually fall out on their own, but if they don’t, they can impede the growth of adult teeth. If a baby tooth has a large cavity that can’t be filled, we can extract it. The same goes with dental overcrowding. When teeth lack sufficient room to grow in straight, they grow in crooked and crowded. If you have this problem, you may need to have teeth extracted, particularly if you intend to get braces, as you will need to have enough room in your jaw for the teeth to straighten.
