How Do I Know If I Need a Tooth Extracted?

Watch this video to learn about what scenarios require the removal of a tooth.

How do you know if you need a tooth extracted? One of the main symptoms is pain. Does it hurt you? Does it not hurt you? Typically, if it hurts you, the tooth needs attention, either a root canal or an extraction. When do we extract the tooth?

If the tooth is cracked, then we have to extract the tooth. Root canals don’t save that tooth. If the tooth has a history of lots of decay and there’s not enough tooth structure remaining to rebuild the tooth, to restore the tooth, then it’s better off to extract the tooth. Take the tooth out. Consider having an implant and a crown.

The Mini Dental Implant Advantage

Immediate Results

Because they are less invasive, and don’t require the lengthy healing time of traditional implants, they can typically be loaded with crowns, bridges and dentures immediately.

Less Healing Time & Fewer Visits

Because mini implants are much smaller, placing them is a less invasive procedure—requiring less healing time and discomfort, and fewer visits.

No More Decay

Mini implants are made out of titanium—the same type of material that is used on artificial joints, and they are not subject to decay or periodontal disease.
