One of the main goals of modern dentistry is to preserve your natural teeth for as long as possible. That’s why at Oakville Dental our professional dental hygienists always reminding you to brush, floss, and come in for regular examinations and cleanings.
Decay, trauma or gum disease can cause the tooth loss
A sharp blow to the mouth in sports, for example, might cause a tooth to chip or crack. Dr. Arvind Kataria would prefer to save the tooth via a crown, a root canal, or both but sometimes, depending on the damage sustained, it just isn’t possible. Gum disease or decay may also make it impractical to save a natural tooth. In these situations, it may be preferable to replace the tooth with a durable, natural-looking dental implant.
During orthodontic treatment, one or more teeth may need to be removed to alleviate the condition known as crowding: That’s when the dental arches simply don’t have enough space to accommodate all the teeth. Also, impacted wisdom teeth, and baby teeth that don’t fall out on their own, sometimes interfere with other nearby teeth, nerves or important structures in the mouth; they may need to be extracted too.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Removal of wisdom teeth is important, especially when there is no room for them to erupt. Symptoms such as pain and facial swelling indicate wisdom teeth that are impacted and need to be removed. Dr. Arvind Kataria and associates have the experience to handle simple to impacted wisdom teeth extractions.
