A tooth that is broken, damaged, or decayed can be replaced with either bonded fillings or dental crowns. Sometimes, when the teeth are beyond repair or restoration it may need an extraction. When gum diseases are left untreated, it develops in your mouth which results in reducing the strength of your gums. If the strength of the gums is continually weakening, it may ultimately cause the teeth to fall out or may require tooth extraction to prevent the spread of bacteria in the surrounding gums. Portrait Dental relies on tooth extractions when there is no other alternative left.
Tooth extraction of impacted third molars (wisdom teeth) is often required as the abnormal growth of the tooth causes discomfort to the adjoining teeth, as well as misalignment due to a lack of space. The infection present in impacted third molars may gradually spread, and that can result in damage to the adjacent gums and teeth.
