When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?

  • Deep Decay – With a tool like DIAGNOdent, it’s easy for us to treat cavities as they first form. Unfortunately, not every patient seeks help early enough to stop the process. A tooth with substantial decay may need to be extracted, as a filling or a crown may not be enough to restore it.
  • Accident or Injury – It happens more than you think. One minute your smile is intact, and then, in a split-second, you’re facing an injury that threatens the health of one or more teeth. When that happens, you can rely on our team at San Marcos Gentle Dental to provide the compassionate care you need.
  • Gum Disease – Gum disease is not only a common oral health problem; it’s also the number one cause of tooth loss in adults. As gum disease becomes more advanced, it causes bone loss, which can cause teeth to loosen. Eventually, bone loss can result in the loss of one or more teeth.
  • Wisdom Tooth Removal – We’re all born with wisdom teeth, also known as third molars. But whatever purpose they once served, they just take up space now. At San Marcos Gentle Dental, we recommend that patients have their wisdom teeth extracted as teenagers. When wisdom teeth are given a chance to emerge, this can lead to a range of uncomfortable issues, like impaction, crowding, or infection.
