At Smiley Dental Garland, if you are in need of a tooth extraction, our skilled dentist, Dr. Lynh Pham can help you have a comfortable, efficient tooth extraction in Dallas, Texas. When your tooth requires an extraction, our dentist, Dr. Lynh Pham will remove the tooth, or teeth from the socket in the bone. A tooth is generally extracted after other options have been explored, but there are good reasons to remove a damaged tooth, or a tooth which needs to make space for orthodontic treatment, etc. A tooth (or teeth) may require extraction if:
— You have extra teeth which are blocking other teeth from coming in.
— If a baby tooth doesn’t fall out when it is supposed to so that the permanent tooth is able to come in.
— If you are going to be getting braces, and need room for the new position of the teeth.
— If you are undergoing radiation to the head and neck area.
— If teeth have become infected from using cancer drugs, and your immune system is compromised.
— If you have had an organ transplant and teeth can become infected.
— Your wisdom teeth may need extraction before or after they come in. If they have decay, are causing you pain, or have an infection or a cyst, they may require removal.
Having a tooth extracted can also prevent further damage to a tooth as well as prevent an infection.
