You may find that you figuratively beat yourself up a little bit when you need dental care of the restorative variety. When you’ve neglected your dental hygiene or you have waited too long to see us and you discover you require something like a filling or crown, you think: Why didn’t I take better care of my smile? While it’s absolutely possible to end up requiring the removal of a tooth as the result of choices you did (or didn’t) make on behalf of your smile health, our Upton, MA team reminds you: Sometimes, things just happen that cause you to require a dental extraction.

When You Need More Room In Your Smile
Don’t be upset just because you learn we need to remove a tooth or two (or more). In some cases, dental extractions become essential as part of your plan for a straight, beautifully aligned smile! This is particularly important in cases of overcrowding. This is just a term that means you have all of your teeth in your mouth and, unfortunately, there’s not enough room for them to all be there together. For a straight smile, some must be removed and then remaining teeth will be aligned with orthodontic care. See? All good things.
When You’re Managing Your Third Molars
Again, you may discover that it’s time for dental extractions when you’re either having problems with your third molars (also called wisdom teeth) or when you decide that you don’t really want to wait to see how they’ll do. Either elective or necessary surgery promotes a healthy smile, as we remove wisdom teeth to ensure they do not cause any complications for your oral health’s future.
When You Accidentally End Up With Damage
We know how scary it can be to have your tooth accidentally damaged (such as during a sporting event or just through some other unfortunate accident). Of course, this isn’t necessarily your fault! You might have just been minding your own business or participating in a quick game of basketball. All it takes is just the right contact to your face and mouth for damaged tissue to occur. When it’s very serious damage, you may require a dental extraction. Good news: There are beautiful ways to replace that tooth, so don’t worry!
