A dentist's goal is to provide patients with the best possible dental and periodontal health. Most of the time that means leaving the teeth in place and saving the tooth is a high priority. However, there are times that the tooth is not able to be saved and an extraction is the best course of treatment.
So how do you know when a tooth needs to be pulled? Here are some signs that you may have a tooth that needs to be pulled:
When you have an acute toothache caused by an injured or infected tooth, the immediate need is to get rid of the pain. Many patients need time to prepare for the financial cost of the reconstruction (which can be thousands of dollars) and prefer to do the extraction now and schedule a visit with a general dentist or periodontist later.
At Just Pull It, we have a singular mission to provide safe, fast, single visit, and low-cost tooth extractions for our patients who need it. We are aware of the need in the community. We do not provide general dentistry or other reconstructive services. We know that tooth infection left untreated causes great pain, loss of work, time with family, and added stress. No one plans for debilitating tooth pain so relief is our immediate focus. Reconstructive treatment can be scheduled at a convenient time afterward.
