You want to keep as many of your teeth as you can for as long as you can. Knowing this, there are still times when tooth removal can be a good option for you.
Call 361-209-8609 for a consultation at Sabal Dental in Rockport, TX if you have any of these situations.
1. You Need Orthodontic Care
Crowding is a common concern that makes it hard to straighten your teeth. Removing a tooth or a few teeth could make it much easier to complete your orthodontic treatment.
2. Your Tooth Is Severely Damaged
We have a lot of ways to fix teeth — fillings, crowns, and root canals, for instance. Even so, there are times when teeth need to be removed and replaced instead.
3. You Are Getting Implant Dentures
If you have just a few healthy teeth, you may prefer to take them out. This can allow you to get implant dentures that look and feel like a full set of healthy teeth.
