Why You May Need a Tooth Extraction

August 7, 2018

Do you have severely decayed or damaged teeth? Are your wisdom teeth giving you problems? At Distinctive Dental Care we are proud to offer tooth extractions in Oswego and Villa Park for our patients. Wondering why exactly you may need a tooth extraction?

Severe Decay, Infection & Damage

When a patient neglects their smile, decay, infection and even damage can be common. However as the damage, decay or infection advances it can actually affect the root of your tooth, causing extreme pain, severe infections and quite a few other complications.


Although most people have more than enough room for all their teeth, situations do arise where teeth overcrowding occurs, leading to improperly erupting teeth, dysfunctional bites and various other issues.

Baby Teeth

Did you know that on occasion baby teeth won’t properly come out? This can have a big impact on your child’s smile and permanent teeth. A extraction may be recommended if your child is experiencing complications related to their baby teeth not properly dislodging.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are one of the most common reasons we extract teeth at Distinctive Dental Care, typically due to them not properly erupting and becoming impacted. Our dentist would be happy to evaluate your oral health to determine if your wisdom teeth may need to be extracted to avoid future complications and discomfort.

Periodontal Gum Disease

Did you know that gum disease can impact more than just your gums? As periodontal gum disease progresses, damage is actually done to the gums, bone and supporting structures for your teeth. This can result in teeth shifting, misalignment and a slew of other problems.
