What is a Tooth Extraction? 

This might seem like a dumb question, but we need to make sure everyone is on the same page. A tooth extraction is when a dental surgeon removes one or more of your permanent adult teeth. This procedure is the last resort when it comes to your dental health, because adult teeth do not grow back. If you need an extraction, Louisville Dental E.R. has options to help you replace what is being lost. From Dental Implants to Dentures, we have a solution for you. 

Why Would I Need a Tooth Extracted? 

There may be situations where a tooth extraction is the right call to save your smile. Some of those situations include the following. 

  • Broken or Damaged Tooth – if you break one of your teeth, an extraction can save a ton of pain, as well as protect the rest of your smile from the risk of infection that comes with the break. Damaged teeth, or those that have been repaid several times with fillings may also need extracted to prevent damage to your smile. 
  • Infected Tooth – Sometimes this condition is able to be rectified through a root canal. For those times where a root canal will not get the job done, an extraction can prevent further damage by removing the infection from you smile. The expert dental team at Louisville Dental ER will help you understand your options, and make the right choice. 
  • Periodontal Disease – Commonly known as Gum Disease, Periodontal Disease is an infection in the tissue surrounding and supporting your teeth. When this tissue becomes too damaged to properly support your teeth, a tooth extraction can help. Talk to the team at Louisville Dental ER about what is going to work best for you and your smile. 
  • Crowded Mouth – Another reason you might need a tooth extraction is you are simply dealing with too many teeth in your mouth. Removing one or more teeth in preparation for braces or another orthodontia procedure is common, and necessary to make sure you can have a smile you will be proud of.
