Watch Patient Stories
At Cincinnati Oral, Maxillofacial & Dental Implant Surgery, our trusted oral surgeons will meet with you for a consultation to determine if a tooth extraction is the best solution for your oral health. Drs. Cassidy, Pieper, and Wilcox will explore all treatment options to save your natural teeth before recommending an extraction.
Conditions that Require a Tooth Extraction
There are a variety of reasons that a tooth may need to be extracted, and we have listed some of the most common conditions below.
- Dental crowding. When there is not enough space for teeth to grow into the dental arch, crowding and misalignment can occur. When orthodontics cannot correct this, extraction may be the best solution.
- Broken teeth. Broken teeth are often the result of facial trauma. When an oral surgeon or general dentist cannot save the broken tooth, it requires extraction.
- Periodontal disease. Teeth that have reached a stage of decay beyond repair are removed to prevent infections and maintain daily habits such as eating and drinking. Periodontal disease is a common gum infection that occurs in patients experiencing infections in the surrounding gums near your wisdom teeth. Periodontal diseases cause the teeth near your wisdom teeth to begin loosening and eventually need a tooth extraction procedure to maintain your oral health.
Our oral surgeons perform tooth extractions based on a variety of conditions that occur in your dental arch. It is important to maintain checkups with your dentist to watch for signs of tooth decay or damage that leads to oral complications. Patients unable to manage oral hygiene habits at home to prevent tooth decay require extractions to fix their smile. Undergoing an extraction with an oral surgeon allows patients to take advantage of all of the options available for replacing their missing tooth. At Cincinnati Oral, Maxillofacial & Dental Implant Surgery, we can replace your missing tooth with a dental implant and fully restore our oral function and smile.
