How do I know if my tooth needs to be removed?

Teeth can decay, get damaged, and get infected. This can be incredibly uncomfortable. Do you or a loved one need to know if a tooth needs to be removed? Please watch this video by our Calgary dentist Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh to learn about extractions and the signs your tooth needs to be extracted.

Some people ask, “How do I know if my teeth need to be removed?” You don’t really know until you come in and have us look at it. We take a lot of different factors into consideration when we decide if a tooth is suitable for extraction or not. One of those factors could be that there isn’t enough tooth structure to hold a filling or a crown. That’s called a non-restorable tooth. Sometimes the long-term prognosis or outlook for the tooth is not good. We’ll always give you multiple options along with the benefits and downsides of each option to let you decide if that tooth needs to be extracted or not.

When teeth start to erode or they break off in an accident, it is important to get them out if need be. If you or someone you love needs a tooth removed, please give us a call to set up an appointment to learn about the signs your tooth needs to be extracted.
