Children are often excited by the idea of losing a tooth. After all, losing a tooth brings with it a visit from the tooth fairy, and some form of reward along with her.

Tooth loss between the ages of 5-11 is the natural process of a child’s dental health. However, as an adolescent or adult – once your adult teeth have erupted, the dental professionals at our sedation dentistry Coquitlam office understand that losing a tooth or multiple teeth can be a traumatic experience.

There are a variety of reasons why one might be required to have a tooth, or multiple teeth, extracted as an adult. Although your teeth should remain with you throughout your life, your teeth are prone to decay, damage, and trauma that might be too severe to fix with a filling, crown, or other dental procedures.

The Positive Position of Tooth Extraction & Sedation Dentistry – Coquitlam

Teeth are not only removed due to decay or periodontal disease, sometimes the mouth is too crowded by adult teeth, and removing such teeth would provide one with a more pleasant smile.

Periodontal Disease and Tooth Loss

As we mentioned in our previous post, periodontal disease is another reason why teeth might be required to be extracted, as extensive bone loss surrounding the teeth makes those teeth loose and unstable. As a result, the gums often stay inflamed and infected, and continually trap food.

Modern dentistry provides multiple solutions for tooth loss; however, from implants to bridges …there is no need to bare the shame of toothlessness any longer.
