Yep, I love my dentists also.
It's a very modern facility, all top of the line equipment. Plus, they play rock n roll music.
There are many reasons why a tooth may need extraction. It could be due to a disease such as
gingivitis. It could be due to another disease entirely not to do with the mouth but affects it just
Chipped and Cracked teeth can often not be capped or filed and therefore need extraction.
Some teeth may protrude in a way that will affect other teeth (this was the reason for my upper
tooth extraction. It was mostly filling and protruding outward from the gum).
Infection of one or more teeth may result in extraction. If infected teeth are left in place, the
infection can result in gum disease, bone loss, and even affect other parts of the body.
A lot of people tend to think old people are going to have bad teeth. That is not necessarily true.
Heredity has a lot to do with your teeth as it does with most everything else.
Right smack in the middle lower front, I had teeth that were becoming more and more loose.
It was best to get those out before they became infected.
My sister that is about 5 years older than I, she does not have any teeth at all. She has dentures
but does not wear them.
It is very important to take care of your teeth. We can't do anything about heredity but we can
do our best to keep them clean and have regular dental visits.
In regards to multiple dental visits in my case, there is no additional fees. They don't charge
office visits. It's important to allow the gums to recede before taking impressions. It's also
very important to make sure the partials are correctly fitted. Many dentists do not take that
kind of care and that is why many people have ill fitting dentures/partials.
