Have your dentists, Dr. Tobola, Dr. Grindling, and Dr. Grindling, recommended extracting your severely damaged tooth? If so, you’re probably not happy about the suggestion. Tooth extraction is an invasive technique that can be a bit overwhelming. Little did you know, there are many benefits to tooth extraction. Our dental team is happy to tell you all about them today.

-Tooth extraction can help you keep your surrounding teeth healthy and safe. This is because decay and infection tend to spread. If you don’t extract the tooth, the surrounding teeth could suffer.

-Tooth extraction can help prevent overcrowding in the smile. This is beneficial because when the teeth are squished, they tend to overlap. When this happens, they are tough to clean. Because the plaque and bacteria stay on and around the teeth, they create problems like tooth decay and gum disease.

-Tooth extraction can help you relieve the pain you feel. This is because the decay and infection are causing the pain, and once they are eliminated, they won’t cause the discomfort. Extraction can also help you have a functional mouth once again because you won’t need to worry about not using that tooth anymore.
