Extraction of Problem, Diseased, or Decayed Teeth in Raleigh
While the priority of dental professionals is to save your teeth, in some cases, a tooth, doctors at Renaissance Dental Center may need to be removed to prevent further damage from occurring. Removing a tooth can be a relatively easy procedure for most patients, but for those with anxiety or stress related to visiting the dentist can pose additional problems for patients. Most dental professionals would agree that the more information a patient has about a dental procedure, the more comfortable they are with treatments and procedures.

Why Remove Teeth?
Drs. Abernethy, Sonner & Wells share a joined passion for only the highest quality of dentistry on your journey towards optimal oral health.
Teeth may need to be removed for many reasons. One reason might be that a tooth, or several teeth, have fallen victim to gum disease. Gum disease (periodontal disease)occurs when bacteria has become lodged between teeth and beneath the gums. When left untreated, the bacteria can turn to tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional.
If tartar is not removed, it can lead to gum disease, significant bone and gum loss and eventually tooth loss. Another reason why a patient might need to have teeth removed is that the tooth has become broken due to accident or injury, and it cannot be repaired.
If teeth are not growing properly or if they are impeding the progress of other teeth, it might be advisable to remove the tooth or teeth to make room for the incoming teeth. Other reasons to remove a tooth include tooth decay beyond repair, failing root canal, fracture, or there isn’t enough room for the teeth, as is usually the case when dealing with wisdom teeth extractions.
