Slide 2:

In an ideal world, you keep all of your original adult teeth. Trips to the dentist would include cleaning, maintenance and minor repairs at best. However, life isn’t perfect, and teeth can become damaged or infected. It may be necessary to extract your tooth, and a skilled dentist can help ease you through this procedure.   1. Infection   Unfortunately , broken or decayed teeth can become infected with bacteria, especially at their roots. If not treated, the infection can spread and worsen, causing swelling, constricted airways, sinus infections or even brain infections. After removing the problem tooth, the dentist can clean the infected area, thus allowing the gums to heal.

2. Overcrowded Gums   Often , wisdom teeth can grow in crooked, causing them to impact. This can be painful, as well as make it difficult to eat. Additionally, teeth can be pulled to prepare for orthodontia work or to correct a tooth that cannot emerge properly through the gum line.   3. Gum Disease   Teeth can become loose due to advanced gum disease. Gingivitis, its first stage, can progress into periodontit is, an advanced condition that impacts bone and adjacent tissues. In these cases, there may be no other option except to remove the affected tooth.
