An extraction is the removal of a tooth or teeth. While Dental Solutions is committed to providing the best dental care and keeping natural teeth inside the mouth, some situations require removing the tooth or teeth involved.
Why would I need an extraction?
One reason for an extraction is broken or decayed teeth. These teeth cannot be fixed or restored to their previous luster and can cause additional damage to the adjacent teeth, gums, and mouth if left inside.
Wisdom teeth are another possible reason for extraction as well as abscessed teeth. Any kind of condition that prohibits a tooth or teeth from being restored is a condition that will require extraction.
What are the different kinds of impaction that might require tooth removal?
There are three specific kinds of impaction:
- Soft Tissue Impaction:This occurs when the tooth is covered and surrounded by soft tissue. It does not always become infected, but is prone to infection because it is difficult to keep clean.
- Partial Bony Impaction: The teeth are partially out and partially covered by bone. Infection can find its way into the area.
- Complete Bony Impaction: The teeth are covered by bone. These teeth will be more difficult to remove but will cause problems if left in the mouth.
