There are many reasons why teeth need to be removed, and thanks to Dr. Beougher’s extensive surgical training, he is highly skilled in the removal of unwanted teeth. Although not mandatory, oral sedation is recommended.
Some of the common reasons for tooth extractions:
- The tooth is simply not repairable, or may be impractical to repair under the circumstances. This includes teeth that are decayed below the gum line, or teeth that have lost too much bone due to gum disease.
- Removal of the tooth may be a matter of health. Removing wisdom teeth often fall into this category, as do teeth associated with cysts or infections, and any teeth that compromise the patient’s oral health if left in place
- Teeth are frequently removed because they are crowded and their removal would create the space necessary to allow for proper spacing. Orthodontists occasionally request extractions for just this reason. Some front teeth are so crowded that removal is the obvious choice over straightening, and then the teeth are replaced with implants, bridges, or removable partials.
