Tooth Extraction At Perfect Smile Spa
Pain free tooth removal in Essex
Permanent teeth are designed to last you a lifetime, but there are many reasons that this may not be the case. Injury, dental disease and a need to make more room in your mouth are common reasons a tooth may need to be extracted. Our Essex team are dedicated to saving your teeth, so if there is anything that we can do to save your tooth we will always look at those treatments first. Perfect Smile Spa offers professional, pain free tooth extraction in a sterile environment if there is no viable alternative available to you.
Why You Might Need Tooth Extraction
Tooth extraction is always the final solution after we have considered all other treatments which could save the tooth. In the event that you require a pain free tooth extraction with us, then the tooth is likely too damaged from decay or injury and trauma to be saved. Here are some common reasons tooth extraction is needed:
- Severe Damage To The Tooth
The tooth may have extensive damage and decay to the point repair is not an option. If we can fit a crown, add a filling or perform other viable repairs we will always try that first. However, some teeth are beyond repair and it is better for your oral health to have them removed.
- Advanced Gum Disease
Advanced gum disease can affect the tooth and then spread to the gums and tooth root, loosening the tooth to a point it either comes out on its own or it needs removing.
Sometimes a tooth needs to be removed to allow orthodontic treatment to be successful. If there are too many teeth in the mouth, teeth straightening cannot work and so, your Essex dentist may recommend removing a tooth to allow the rest to straighten out in full.
- The Tooth Won't Break Through
Sometimes if a tooth will not break through on its own because there is no room for it, or for another medical reason, your dentist will recommend tooth extraction.
- A Deep Infection
Root canal treatment is used when there is a pulp infection (the middle of the tooth) that needs to be removed. Often our experienced dentists successfully save the tooth this way, but if the infection has spread or cannot be cured, then tooth extraction may be necessary.
- Your Complete Health Is At Risk
If your immune system is at risk because of a medical condition, such as chemotherapy, even the potential for infection can be enough of a reason to remove a tooth.
In all instances, your Essex dentist will look at every single potential treatment to save the tooth before extraction is considered.
