One Tooth Can Impact Your Whole Mouth

The removal of single teeth may be necessary to maintain the health of your remaining teeth and mouth. After evaluating all options and doing as much as possible to save a tooth, extraction may be your best or only option.

Extractions

The most common reasons for extractions are:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Severe decay
  • Badly broken tooth, beyond repair
  • Poorly positioned teeth
  • Orthodontics

After determining that extraction is necessary, Fox Valley Family Dentistry will discuss options with you for replacing the extracted tooth. Having a gap in your teeth can cause the teeth and jaw to shift, creating problems with chewing and dental health.

The long-term health of your mouth depends on the health of each tooth. Fox Valley Family Dentistry will oversee your recovery and help you retain a smile full of vitality and joy.
