Some Teeth Need Splitting to Extract Them Properly


Posted on 1/15/2020 by Palisades Surgical Arts
Some Teeth Need Splitting to Extract Them ProperlyWhile we are not big fans of teeth that have to be extracted, we know that there are times we have no choice but to extract teeth. While we like to take out your teeth whole, there are times it isn't possible.

If you have a tooth that needs to come out, you may want more information about extracting teeth and when a tooth has to be split to be extracted.

When Does A Tooth Have to Come Out?

There are lots of reasons a tooth might have to come out. First, we may need to remove a tooth because it is too diseased to be saved. Teeth can be diseased due to tooth decay or gum disease. Sometimes, a tooth might also have to come out because of an accident or an injury from a blow to the face or head.

You might also need to have a tooth out if it is causing you physical pain. Teeth can sometimes get impacted. This means that your tooth is stuck trying to come out of your gumline or your jaw. Impacted teeth can cause headaches and jaw pain. If we don't remove the tooth, it can become infected, which can cause even more damage to your mouth.

Teeth Splitting

If your tooth is severely impacted, you may need to have the tooth split to have it removed without causing additional damage to your jaw. This is especially true if it is a large tooth, such as a molar, and it is deeply impacted. If we split the tooth, we make it easier to extract, less painful for you, and a faster healing time.

Do you have questions about tooth extraction? We would love to talk to you about how we get rid of problem teeth as quickly and painlessly as possible. Give us a call today, so we can begin the discussion with you about the best way to remove your tooth.
