Extractions/Tooth Removals

Why is it done
Removing a tooth is necessary when decay or an abscessed tooth is so severe that no other treatment will cure the infection.

How well it works
Removing a tooth can help keep infection from spreading to other areas of your mouth and or head and neck.

Dental surgery can allow bacteria in the mouth to enter the bloodstream and cause infections in other parts of the body. People who have difficulty fighting off infections may need to take antibiotics before and after dental surgery. This includes those who:

- Have artificial heart valves and or shunts.
- Were born with heart defects.
- Have had bacterial endocarditis, an infection of the lining of the heart.
- Have diabetes or another disease that causes an impaired immune system.
- Have liver disease (cirrhosis)
- Have artificial joints, such as hip replacement.
- Take steriods for other conditions, such as Crohn's disease or asthma.
