Saving smiles is our number one priority. However, that sometimes requires removing a tooth to maintain great, overall health. Tooth extractions are a last resort but can truly make a difference in restoring your health and function.
A tooth extraction is the formal removal of a tooth from its socket. This procedure is performed by a dentist and is used only when the removal of a tooth benefits the wellbeing of your overall oral health.
Take a second to think about all your teeth do for you on a daily basis. From eating and drinking to talking and more, your teeth are very strong. However, infection and damage does happen. As bacteria build ups on and around a tooth, it can weaken it and leave it susceptible to severe damage. Sometimes infection persists, causing irreparable damage and creating the need for an extraction. There are also more common forms of extraction, like wisdom tooth removal, which allows for more room in your jaw, creating a healthier bite.
Tooth extractions may cause a bad taste in your mouth. But, at Nexus Dental in Indian Trail, we pride ourselves our providing exemplary care for healthy and happy smiles. So, if you think you may be in need of a tooth extraction, contact us today to schedule an appointment.
