Tooth Extraction in Toronto
WHAT IS TOOTH EXTRACTION?
Sometimes a tooth can get severely damaged to the extent that it cannot be restored. Such situations call for total tooth extraction. Tooth extraction involves removing the tooth entirely from it’s socket. After the extraction, the patient is advised to take care of the area to facilitate proper healing. When not sure whether your tooth should be extracted, ask Dr.Paltsev to conduct an examination and give you appropriate guidelines. Some reasons for getting tooth extraction include:
If the tooth is fractured beneath the gum line
In case of a stuck baby tooth
A stuck tooth is a rare occurrence. However, sometimes a baby tooth can get lodged between two teeth. After the adult tooth erupts through the gum line, the baby tooth gets caught up and is not able to fall out of the way. A person ends up with an unwanted baby tooth. However, the baby tooth falls off when it’s ready but in case its stuck, the help of a dentist is necessary. It’s advisable not to forcefully remove a baby tooth because it damages the tooth roots and its often very painful.
