At Dentist in Austin, Dr. Hadden helps patients deal with the discomfort their teeth bring. Various options are provided to the patients to help them to make well informed decisions on what to do with their teeth. When dealing with great pain from a troublesome tooth, sometimes the simplest solution is tooth extraction.
Common Tooth Extraction Reasons
Tooth extraction can sometimes be the only option when a tooth is beyond repair. The tooth can either be broken, cracked or extensively decayed. In most cases, the tooth extraction procedure can be performed with minimal discomfort.
If a tooth has to be extracted because it is beyond saving, especially if it is on an advanced stage of periodontal disease, there are still options to fill the gap that the extracted tooth will leave behind.
Other Reasons for Tooth Extraction
Tooth extraction is not limited to teeth that are beyond repair. A tooth extraction can be done on a perfectly healthy tooth that proves to be cumbersome due to its position. This will greatly alleviate discomfort on the patient and it will provide better spacing for the remaining teeth.
Many people have or will experience problems when it comes to wisdom teeth and placement. Some will have only two or three, and there are people who do not develop any wisdom teeth at all. These types of situations all depend upon a person’s physical structure. If there is not enough room for all teeth to grow in, then it just follows that not all teeth would show up. On the other hand, there are also people who grow a complete set of teeth even when their physical structure can not handle them all. This can result in overlapping teeth. Such instances do not just cause discomfort to an individual, but can also lowers confidence and cause people to become self-conscious of their smile.
Every attempt will be made to keep you comfortable through out the tooth extraction procedure. If you want to know more, simply schedule an appointment with us and we are more than happy to bring that confident smile back.
