Drs. Nogueira and Ruel may recommend tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Sometimes, teeth are extracted because they are decayed, while others may have periodontal (gum) disease or may have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Teeth may also be removed due to their poor position in your mouth (impacted teeth) or in advance of orthodontic treatment.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems relating to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth - which can impact your dental health.
Drs Nogueira and Ruel will discuss alternative treatment if available and review the replacement options for missing teeth.
