If you have a seriously damaged tooth and visit your periodontist in Miami, FL, your dental
professional will do everything possible to save your tooth. After your
permanent teeth come in, those teeth need to las the rest of your life, so losing any of them
means having to turn to either dentures or dental implants. While both Dr.
Bradley A. Ross and Dr. Scott B. Ross are skilled at saving teeth, there are
some instances where a tooth cannot be saved.
If a tooth sustains significant damage and cannot be saved,
Dr. Ross may perform a tooth extraction
This is when the tooth is completely removed
from the mouth. Our staff will do
everything possible to minimize your discomfort during such a procedure. There
are a few reasons why you may need a tooth extractions
High-contact sports involve a lot of physical touch. A blow to the head or face
could break a tooth or cause it to fall out completely. If it is not possible
to restore the tooth using other methods, Dr. Ross will need to remove the rest
of the tooth to prevent infection and other issues.
It is important to brush and floss your teeth every day and avoid consuming too
much sugar. Without proper care, your teeth can decay. If left untreated, this
decay could damage the tooth beyond repair, requiring extraction.
- Wisdom Teeth Removal. Everyone has wisdom teeth that start coming in during the
teen years. In most cases, however, the wisdom teeth are unable to break
through. They may become impacted, or trapped below other teeth in the mouth,
or simply not have enough room to come through. You can plan ahead to have
wisdom teeth extracted
before they cause a problem. This is another common
scenario where a tooth often cannot be saved.
