The temperatures are finally staying warm here in Cleveland! At Ocoee Oral Surgery we want you looking and feeling your best when you’re out having fun in the sun. Sometimes getting a tooth pulled is the only option available to maintain the mouth’s overall health. If you are feeling any of the following pain points, let us help you get summer-ready with a tooth extraction.
Extracting Broken Teeth
When one of your teeth breaks, especially near the gum line, it may need to be extracted. A dental professional could cap the broken tooth with a crown if addressed quickly enough, but in many instances extraction is necessary. When a broken tooth needs to be pulled, Ocoee is here to help.
Extracting Teeth with Tooth Decay
One of the many purposes of those annual dental exams is to detect early signs of tooth decay. When bacteria enter the flesh of a tooth, that tooth sometimes must be removed to stop the spread. When this occurs, the tooth must be extracted to make sure that no other teeth are affected by the decay and that the gums and jaw do not become compromised.
Extracting Teeth Due to Gum Disease
Gum disease, if left untreated, can destroy ligaments, tissue, and bone that support your healthy teeth. When these structures weaken they loosen their hold on your teeth. That can lead to the extraction of one or multiple teeth before they eventually fall out on their own (a situation that you want to avoid if possible).
Extracting Impacted or Overcrowded Teeth
When the teeth are severely overcrowded, one or more may be removed to create more space and promote the proper alignment of the remaining teeth. Similarly, an impacted tooth that grows only partially beyond the gum line or is tilted at an abnormal angle may need to be pulled. Many people have their wisdom teeth removed for this very reason, to allow more room for the remainder of the patient’s teeth.
