More often than not, you want to keep all your teeth intact. Even so, teeth extractions can help you maintain or even improve your oral health in certain circumstances. Here are three times when removing a tooth could help you.
Your Smile Is Crowded
Crowding can be a problem, particularly if you are preparing for orthodontic treatment. Removing a tooth or teeth could create the space needed to straighten your smile more easily.
Your Tooth Is Severely Damaged
A deep break or crack or severe infection could prevent you from getting a crown or a root canal. In this instance, removing the tooth and replacing it is your better option.
Your Wisdom Teeth Are Impacted
When wisdom teeth can’t erupt correctly, they become impacted. That puts pressure on your other teeth and increases your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and infections. By taking out wisdom teeth that are or are likely to become impacted, you can avoid a lifetime of oral health problems.
