ATLANTA, GA, March 05, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- There are a variety of reasons why a tooth might needed to be pulled or extracted. The Lawrenceville, Ga., dentists at Lawrenceville Dental Associates wish to share the most common reasons for this procedure.
Decay and infections are the most common reasons to have a tooth extracted. These extractions make up roughly 70 percent of all tooth extractions. If your tooth has severe decay or an infection, it is crucial to see your dentist in Gwinnett county, Ga., immediately. Decay and infection can lead to an abscess, which can threaten the teeth surrounding your affected tooth and worse.
Overcrowding or having extra teeth is another reason to remove a tooth. The Lilburn dentists at Lawrenceville Dental Associates know that having extra teeth or an overly crowded mouth can create all kinds of dental nightmares, including the displacement of teeth, extra pressure on teeth and even the possibility of a tooth fracturing or breaking due to overcrowding.
"Wisdom teeth are also commonly extracted, especially because they can begin to impact other teeth as they emerge," says Ken Tralongo, CEO of Tralongo Management. "Typically, our mouths do not have enough space for our wisdom teeth, meaning they must push other teeth out of the way to make room when they come in."
If you are concerned that your tooth or teeth may need to be extracted, you should contact the dentists at Lawrenceville Dental Associates. They can help you to determine if your tooth needs to be removed and perform the procedure. Schedule an appointment or learn more at http://www.lawrencevilledentalassociates.com.
