“DO I NEED TO HAVE MY TOOTH PULLED?”
While there’s not always a straightforward answer to whether you need an extraction, you may want to consider one if you’re experiencing any of the following oral health conditions:
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Severe fractures or decay
- Upcoming denture treatment
- Chronic toothaches
- Advanced periodontal disease
REPLACING YOUR MISSING TOOTH
Each of our teeth play a specific role when it comes to eating, speaking, and the alignment of other teeth in our mouths. Losing just one tooth can create a chain reaction that causes its neighbors to start to move, tilt, and erupt further out of the mouth. This process can spread throughout the entire mouth.
Any time you schedule extractions in Marion, Iowa, the Cottage Grove Dental Care team will discuss practical options for how to replace them. Unless it’s a wisdom tooth, you’ll want to arrange for a restoration within a timely manner (before teeth start shifting.) Some of the more common ones to consider include bridges, partial dentures, and dental implants.
