Sometimes a tooth is simply too diseased to restore with a filling or crown. This is also true when there is oral or facial swelling originating from a dental infection. In these cases, the best cure is to remove the offending tooth and drain out any abscess or infection that is present.
Teeth (usually primary or baby teeth, but on occasion permanent teeth) may also need to be extracted to make way for permanent teeth or to prevent crowding. Your dentist or orthodontist will recommend extractions when necessary.
Children have accidents, and it isn’t uncommon to injure or even knock out a tooth. Baby teeth should not be reimplanted if they are knocked out because of the risk of injury to the developing permanent tooth. However, your dentist will do everything he or she can to reimplant an avulsed (knocked out) permanent tooth as soon as possible. Other traumatic injuries such as cuts may need sutures, or broken or chipped teeth may need repair or extraction.
