At the dental office of Dr. Robert B. Ruyak, DMD, we understand that your permanent teeth are meant to last a lifetime. However, there are some situations where a tooth will need to be extracted. Although we will do our best to make this a last resort, sometimes tooth extractions are unavoidable. Removing a tooth is absolutely necessary when decay or an abscessed tooth is so severe that no other treatment will cure the infection. Other reasons for tooth extractions are:
- When people have extra teeth that block other teeth from coming in.
- When baby teeth don’t fall out in time to allow permanent teeth to come in.
- Sometimes people who are getting braces may need teeth extracted to create room for teeth that are being moved into place.
- Some teeth may need to be extracted if they have the potential of becoming infected.
If you have any of these issues, or if a tooth that is causing you pain, please give us a call.
