You and Dr. Lipari /Mangiameli may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed. Others may have advanced periodontal disease or are broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth) or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability and possibly lead to the shifting of teeth. This can have a major impact on your dental health. To avoid these complications, one of our doctors will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement of the extracted tooth.
