Extractions are a last resort, a damaged, diseased, or infected tooth that is restored to healthy function is always better than a missing tooth. In turn, Mississauga tooth extraction at Dentistry on 10 includes a consultation to determine the best tooth replacement for you. The sooner the tooth is replaced, the better the odds of avoiding the complications of missing teeth.
While a tooth doesn’t have to be replaced in every case when the following conditions arise, it is a possibility in all scenarios. In the capable, gentle hands of Dr. Rina Kotecha and her team, there is no reason to fear the procedure.
Severe decay can progress to where the innermost pulp tissue is infected. Root canal therapy can often save the affected tooth, but some damage may be so severe that removing the tooth is the only way to stop infection.
Advanced gum disease or periodontitis eventually causes the gums to pull away from the teeth. An already loose tooth may fall out, but the safest, healthiest, and most comfortable approach is to visit Dentistry on 10 before the condition progresses.
Crowded teeth can cause many complications. Crowding can impede a tooth from erupting. Dr. Kotecha may recommend extraction if there is not enough room for the tooth in the first place. Insufficient room is often responsible for the third molars, or wisdom teeth, becoming impacted. They are not necessary for proper function, and may need to be pulled if the area is painful or there is potential damage to surrounding teeth, nerves, and structures.
There is no reason to delay this common, quick procedure. Dentistry on 10 offers sedative options that add to your comfort. Since the team gets to know each patient, extractions may not be necessary as problems are identified and addressed early. Call (905) 455-9262.
