Signs Your Tooth May Need to Be Sectioned for a Dental Extraction


Posted on 3/20/2019 by Ankur Johri
Signs Your Tooth May Need to Be Sectioned for a Dental ExtractionNo one wants to hear that they need to have a tooth extracted, but it is really nothing to fear. In fact, the problems and the pain that lead up to needing the extractions are often worse than the actual procedure. Here are some of the signs to watch for that will tell you that you might need to have a tooth extracted.

Teeth Pain

Dental pain is a sign that something is wrong. Not all pain will lead to an extraction, but you will not know if you do not see us. Also, the pain does not need to be in the actual tooth. If you have pain in your gums, or if you have an abscess, you might need to have a tooth extracted.

Overcrowding Teeth

Do you feel as if there is not enough room in your jaw for all of your teeth? If so, a tooth extraction could be the best solution. Wisdom teeth are a great example. For many people, there is not enough room in their mouth for four new teeth, which is why wisdom teeth are sometimes removed.

Jaw Pain

The pain does not have to be in your teeth for a tooth to be bad. You could feel the pain in your jaw as well. Sometimes there is a throbbing feeling in the jaw that signals that there is a problem.

Injury
If there was a traumatic injury to the mouth in sports or a fall, a tooth might need to be extracted. If you have received a blow to your mouth, let us know if the pain does not go away.

These are just a few of the reasons why a tooth might need to be extracted. It is better to take care of the tooth as soon as you realize that there is a problem, than to wait and let it get worse, so call us right away.
