We Remove Unhealthy Teeth in Plainfield
At Millennium Family Dental, our dentist takes all possible steps to save your teeth from decay. Unfortunately, some teeth have such poor health that treatment will fail. When Dr. Michael Risty encounters these teeth, he performs a simple tooth extraction.
Why Do Extractions Become Necessary?
The most common cause for removing a tooth is when repeated decay occurs. Fillings, crowns, root canals, and retreatment by an endodontic specialist are all options a patient has in saving their natural teeth from infection. But, when decay returns even after advanced endodontic care, the likelihood of the tooth surviving is low. Moreover, allowing the dead tooth to stay in the smile encourages the infection of the surrounding teeth and tissue. Dr. Risty’s removal of the tooth stops the spread of untreatable decay to the rest of the smile.
Additionally, a tooth can be removed when an orthodontist requires it as part of a treatment plan. If the jaw is too crowded to maintain a healthy alignment and cannot be expanded, removing a single tooth lets the orthodontist continue with their treatment plan to give you the healthy smile you deserve.
The Extraction Process
Dr. Risty’s approach makes tooth extraction comfortable. Before scheduling this procedure, or any other surgical treatment, He reviews your medical history and personal concerns. Dr. Risty takes the time to get to know you to make sure you receive the exact care you need.
After you have undergone an extraction for removing a decayed tooth, you should consider your teeth replacement options. In a separate procedure, Dr. Risty can place a dental implant at the site of tooth loss. Not only does the implant support a new tooth you can use, but the post acts as an artificial root to prevent the jaw health problems associated with tooth loss.
