When the Last Resort is the Best Solution

Tooth extractions are never the first option when it comes to treating severely decayed or damaged teeth. Dr. Ernie or Dr. DeHart will always attempt to fix the issue with more conservative forms of restorative dental care. However, if it doesn’t appear that dental crowns or root canal treatment are sufficient, we will likely move on to the last resort of recommending tooth extraction in Arlington Heights. Keep reading or call our office to find out why we might suggest this form of treatment.

When Are Tooth Extractions Necessary?

When faced with a decayed or damaged tooth, there is a good chance that another form of treatment will be recommended; however, if we find that results are unsuccessful and your oral health remains at risk, you can expect we will suggest removing one or more of your natural teeth.

Here are just a few reasons why this treatment option is likely to be recommended:

  • Your child’s baby tooth will not fall out on its own, and the permanent tooth needs room to erupt.
  • Your badly decayed tooth is posing a threat to nearby healthy teeth.
  • You require orthodontic treatment but need to have one or more teeth removed to ensure adequate space for movement.
  • You have suffered severe facial trauma resulting in a badly broken tooth that cannot be saved.
  • You are experiencing advanced gum disease, causing one or more teeth to become loose.
