Signs Your Tooth Should Be Extracted

Published on November 2nd, 2020

Living in constant pain is no way to go through life, especially when it involves your mouth. Tooth-related pain can make eating, drinking and even talking a miserable experience on a daily basis. Opting for a tooth extraction in Bloomingdale or West Loop is a simple and effective way to provide patients with much-needed relief while simultaneously preventing further problems from developing.

If you’ve been experiencing any of the following, please be sure to get in touch with us at Pure Dental Spa.

What are the Initial Red Flags?

Here are some of the warning signs that you may need a tooth extraction in Bloomingdale:

  • Severe, ongoing tooth pain
  • Swollen gums surrounding one or two of your teeth
  • Stiffness or pain the jaw bone
  • Pain that gets worse when you are biting or chewing

While the above signs aren’t considered a full-fledged dental emergency, we encourage you to seek treatment before your pain worsens.

Severe Conditions That May Lead to Extraction

In some cases, we may notice severe trauma involving a particular tooth. Typically, this trauma is the result of a severe infection, damage beyond repair, overcrowding or impacting. In this case, we recommend getting the tooth extracted as soon as possible to prevent future problems from developing in other areas of the mouth.

The development of periodontal disease is another common reason for tooth extractions. Periodontal disease is typically the result of gingivitis or periodontitis. Gingivitis is the inflammation of the gums that surround the teeth and periodontitis is the inflammation of the bones and the tissues surrounding the teeth.
