Did you know that having a tooth extracted can actually help your smile? It’s true! If you have a tooth that is compromised from tooth decay or periodontal disease, the harmful bacteria involved in these dental conditions can spread to other areas of your mouth, causing problems with other teeth. Fortunately, Dr. John Olsen at Franklin Dental in Franklin, WI, can help keep your smile healthy by removing compromised teeth—read on to learn more!

Reasons to undergo tooth extraction

So, how do you know if you need a tooth extracted? Well, pain is a common symptom you might need a tooth extracted. You can benefit from tooth extraction if you have tooth pain that:

  • Continues after a dental filling or other restoration has been placed
  • Continues after root canal treatment has been completed
  • Continues after periodontal therapy has been completed
  • Is caused by wisdom teeth pressing on other teeth

You may also need teeth extracted for reasons other than pain. These are the most common reasons to extract non-painful teeth:

  • Orthodontic treatment; extracting teeth that you don’t have room for can make straightening your teeth quicker and easier. Removing extra teeth can often give you a better result from braces.
  • Wisdom teeth; most people don’t have room for a third set of molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth. The wisdom teeth are so far back that they are difficult to keep clean, resulting in tooth decay or periodontal disease.
