How to Maintain Healthy Teeth : Pros & Cons of Tooth Extractions


So have you ever wondered on what the pros
and cons are of getting your tooth extracted? Well my name is Michelle and I’m a dental
assistant with Solutionz and I’m going to kind of help you understand better on the
pros and the cons of extractions. Basically the most important probably best part of having
an extraction is it’s basically it’s the easiest treatment course depending on whatever your
general dentist has recommended for you, nine times out of ten he’ll give you different
treatment options and one of those options will probably be just to have the tooth extracted.
It’s a lot cheaper, more cost effective for you in treatment, just to have the tooth extracted.
So therefore you don’t have to worry for any future problems down the road of trying to
restore that tooth. But also in reflection of that, the cons of it is that if you have
a tooth extracted, the teeth next to it are going to shift and actually drift into place,
where you have that gap from the extraction. Or the above tooth or the lower tooth underneath
it depending on what area it is in your mouth, will actually start to what we call super
erupt, it’ll actually start to slowly but surely over a period of time, start to push
itself out of the socket. So, these are all types of issues and forms that you need to
be aware of whenever you are considering to have an extraction done. But mainly consulting
with your general dentist, he’ll be able to let you know what is the best treatment option
for you, so in return you can make a better decision. But once again my name is Michelle
and I’m a dental assistant with Solutionz and I just explained to you on the pros and
cons of having a tooth extracted.
