Need for Orthodontic Treatment
For some people, crowding or misalignment of the teeth can be corrected with braces or other orthodontic methods. However, if teeth are too crowded or have too many gaps to correct with orthodontics alone, removing one or more teeth may be necessary to align the smile and improve oral health.
Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth often become impacted when there is insufficient room to emerge properly through the gums. This can cause pain and lead to surrounding gum tissue infection. It can also cause permanent damage to other teeth and jawbone structures. Since impacted teeth are usually removed as a preventative measure before these secondary issues occur, dental insurance plans often cover them.
Many patients require tooth extractions for a wide variety of reasons. For the best dental care customized to your needs, visit Riverside Tooth Co at 6886 Indiana Ave Suite B, Riverside 92506, or call (951) 686-2565.
