THE REMOVAL OF SINGLE TEETH MAY BE NECESSARY TO MAINTAIN THE HEALTH OF YOUR REMAINING TEETH AND MOUTH.
After evaluating all options and doing as much as possible to save a tooth, extraction may be your best or only option. The most common reasons for extractions are:
- Periodontal disease
- Severe decay
- Badly broken tooth, beyond repair
- Poorly positioned teeth or overcrowding
After determining that extraction is necessary, Delmar Family Dental will discuss options with you for replacing the extracted tooth. Having a gap between your teeth can cause the surrounding teeth to shift, creating problems with chewing and long-term dental health.
The long-term health of your mouth depends on the health of each tooth. Delmar Family Dental will oversee your recovery and help you retain a smile full of vitality and joy.
