A tooth extraction is recommended for patients whose teeth are severly damaged by dental caries and bacteria, teeth that cannot be saved by other dental treatments.
It is a dental professional’s job to save teeth from damage. Nevertheless, in some circumstances a tooth gets so much damage due to decay or periodontal disease that it cannot be saved. In these cases, tooth extraction is advised by dentists.
At Bayside Dental, our dentists recommend tooth extractions when restorative dental treatments are not sufficient to save a patient’s tooth. Extractions are sometimes necessary if you:
– Have severe tooth decay
– Have serious gum (periodontal) disease that can affect oral hard and soft tissues if left untreated
– Have impacted wisdom teeth
– Are undergoing an orthodontic procedure that requires removal of a tooth

Diligent care of a recent extraction site is necessary to ensure proper healing. Constantly observe and comply with the instructions provided by your dentist to refrain infection or other complications. Administer a cold compress on the cheek near the extraction site can comfort to reduce any potential swelling.
