TEETH EXTRACTIONS IN BRADFORD, KESWICK & ORANGEVILLE
The removal of adult teeth is only performed if the teeth are seriously damaged or diseased and are detrimental to the overall oral health of the individual. Tooth extractions are most commonly associated with wisdom teeth, especially when they are impacted and need to be removed. Impacted wisdom teeth can create significant discomfort and also negatively influence the development of neighbouring teeth by applying progressively more pressure on them, so it is best to remove them before they emerge.
With respect to other teeth, extractions are always done as a last resort. This can happen when there has been significant trauma to the tooth, when there is significant tooth decay, or when there is not enough jawbone left to properly support the tooth itself. It is very important that tooth extraction is followed with a fake tooth replacement as soon as possible, as missing teeth can cause many problems besides difficulty biting and chewing food. An absence of teeth may result in the other teeth shifting into the empty space, jawbone recession, and so on.
