After all other options have been explored, Princess Dental Centre would recommend a tooth extraction only in the most extreme of cases where another method of saving the tooth is not available.
For example, if a tooth’s roots are damaged beyond repair, traditional restorative methods such as root canal therapy would be impossible. If this is the case extraction of the traumatized tooth will help maintain the overall health of the mouth.
Many dentists recommend the extraction of impacted wisdom teeth. While the teeth may not initially cause physical discomfort, the angle of impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems with adjacent teeth and can create inflammation and irritation as they continue to emerge.
