As a child, losing a tooth was a monumental event — the excitement of having a hole in the mouth along with the excitement of the tooth fairy was exciting for everyone. However, losing a tooth as an adult and going through tooth extractions is not an exciting event. Adult teeth are meant to be permanent, so the thought of losing a permanent tooth can be very upsetting. Family & Cosmetic Dental Care is a comprehensive dental practice that treats patients of all ages, and we put your oral health and comfort as our top priority. For painless teeth extractions, you can trust our dental practice to provide you with comprehensive care before, during, and after your procedure.
While tooth loss is hardly a cause of celebration as an adult, there are several reasons why having a tooth pulled is sometimes necessary. A crowded mouth is a common reason to pull teeth. Wisdom teeth are the most popular teeth that need to be pulled because there is typically not enough room in the mouth for them to come in. Another common reason why a tooth extraction may be necessary is that a tooth has been damaged or is decaying. Tooth decay or damage exposes the center of the tooth, making it very susceptible to infection. When the damage or decay is too severe for a root canal, extraction is necessary to prevent the spread of infection to other teeth.
