A tooth that is broken, damaged, or decayed can be restored with either fillings or crowns. Sometimes, when the teeth are beyond repair or restoration they may need an extraction. When gum diseases are left untreated, the strength of the gums are continually weakening, which may ultimately cause the teeth to fall out or may require extraction as to prevent the spread of bacteria in the surrounding gums. Golden Mile Dental relies on extractions when there is no other alternative left to treat the disease.
Extraction of impacted third molars (wisdom teeth) is often required as the abnormal growth of the tooth causes discomfort to the adjacent teeth.
