2. Are your teeth broken down to the gum level?
3. Do you have gum disease?
4. Are your teeth severely loose?
5. Are you in constant pain?
What is an Extraction?
Some reasons why teeth need to be extracted are that they get to a stage when they can no longer be fixed and there are no other alternatives. That may be attributed to advanced gum disease, a severely fractured tooth. You may also need to have them removed for elective reasons....
Orthodontic room required
Diseased teeth that are going to give you further problems health wise
Unaffordable and the consequence of leaving them may outweigh the benefits
A wide array of surgical procedures are also performed by Dr. Sanchez which includes:
Surgical removal of erupted and impacted: involve the removal of teeth that cannot be easily accessed, either because they have broken under the gum line or because they have not erupted fully.
Biopsy of soft oral tissue: oral tissue biopsy may be necessary for lesions that cannot be diagnosed on the basis of the history and clinical findings alone.
Removal of torus palatinus and mandibularis: Torus is a bony protrusion on the palate or on the mandible.
Incision and drainage of abscess: Incision made intraorally and dissection is extended into adjacent fascial space(s) to provide adequate drainage of abscess or cellulitis.
Frenulectomy: The frenum may be excised when the tongue has limited mobility; for large diastemas (spaces) between teeth; when the frenum interferes with a prosthetic appliance; or when it is the etiology of periodontal tissue disease.
Excision of pericoronal gingiva: surgical removal of inflammatory or hypertophied tissues surrounding partially erupted/impacted teeth.
