Did you know that out of all our teeth, it only takes one to upset the rest of them? You may have come across various examples where patients had to rely on getting a Root Canal Therapy (RCT) or having his/her tooth or gum removed completely. Depending on the severity of the case, it can be advised to you on your next visit to have a specific, problematic tooth removed should your dentist see any suspicious activity or looming risk of infection within any of your teeth.
Infections within the tooth can be tricky to deal with as most of them form or develop underneath the hard surface of the tooth itself. There are threats that it can damage various parts within the tooth including the root or the nerves and spread towards other teeth. This can pose great health risks and can cause major problems for the patient. In order to avoid such dire circumstances, it is always recommended by the dentist to have such infected teeth removed.
The procedure assures that the infection and the bad teeth are extracted and the chances for any infection to remain or spread any further will be eliminated altogether.
Dental hygiene is essential which is why you would always see a dentist recommending patients to have routine check-ups to ensure everything is fine. Our dental hygiene assures us protection from many agonizing and problematic issues. Paying close attention to your dentist or oral surgeon is vital and can provide you with ways to ensure a healthy dental life. Visiting your dentist every month is a good way to ensure all your teeth receive a thorough check-up and remain clean and healthy.
